To produce metal components at different angles and shapes without welding or heating the metal, a variety of bending and folding technologies have been developed, particularly CNC press brakes and plate rolls. Metal forming is the process of reshaping metal sheets into finished parts through a variety of different manufacturing methods. The reshaping process occurs when the force that is being applied is greater than the material’s yield strength. O’Neal Steel’s value-added services include press brake forming for aluminum, hot rolled, and stainless steel.


 Forming Specifications and Advantages

Our press brake forming services create unique, customized parts for manufacturers. For folding or angling metal components, press brake forming is the solution. Our press brake equipment can accurately shape metal sheets to meet your project specifications with a high degree of angle accuracy.

When you have a project that requires a unique form, plate rolling is the solution. Our plate-rolling equipment can form metal sheets into cyclical shapes for manufacturing applications such as tanks, pressurized vessels, and more. O’Neal Steel’s skilled processing team can do it all, from Z-bends to custom folds.
