Press brakes are used to bend metal. They eliminate the need to forge and hammer metal into desired shapes, which can be lengthy. A press brake applies force to push sheet metal into a U- or V-shaped dye. Different types of sheet metal bending include bottoming, air bending, coining, wiping, folding, rolling, and joggling.
Friction Stir Welding
Friction Stir Welding
FSSW is similar to traditional FSW but uses smaller tools. The process involves inserting tiny pins into pre-drilled holes, eliminating the need to form full-length runs along large components. FSSW is often used to weld aluminum sheets up to 6 mm thick. Automobile manufacturers utilize the process to join thin metal sheets together quickly and efficiently without affecting the quality of welds produced.

In this process, sheet metal is pushed down over the edge of the die to form a bend. The press brake presses the metal plate until the metal bends over the die’s outer edge.
