Metal Fabrication Equipment

Metal Fabrication from AIM

The TruBend Series 7036 is a prime example of man and machine working in perfect harmony. The direct drive torque motor operates without a gearbox and generates high torque at low speed – the optimal conditions for large press forces at a high working speed. With the TruBend Series 7036, a high value is placed on ergonomics and user-friendliness. It is fun to operate, fast, and guarantees a consistently high level of part quality.

Small but great

Due to its speed, you can bend small and medium-sized parts particularly economically.

Easy to control

The menu-driven touchscreen can be rotated to avoid reflections.

Sophisticated ergonomics

Numerous setup options create optimum working conditions.

Intelligent helper

A laser also projects the bend line onto the surface of the sheet metal part.

Maximum productivity

The direct drive torque motor generates high torque, even at low speed.


Small and compact

The TruBend 7000 takes up a minimum footprint.

WELDER AT WORK (color toned image; shalow DOF)

Metal fabrication is the building of metal structures by cutting, bending, and assembling processes. Typical projects include loose parts, structural frames for buildings and heavy equipment, and stairs and hand railings for buildings.

  • Cutting is done by sawing, shearing, or chiseling (all with manual and powered variants); torching with hand-held torches (such as oxy-fuel torches or plasma torches); and via numerical control (CNC) cutters (using a laser, mill bits, torch, or water jet).
  • Bending is done by hammering (manual or powered) or via press brakes and similar tools. Modern metal fabricators use press brakes to either coin or air-bend metal sheet into form. CNC-controlled backgauges use hard stops to position cut parts in order to place bend lines in the correct position. Off-line programing software now makes programing the CNC-controlled press brakes seamless and very efficient.
  • Assembling (joining of the pieces) is done by welding, binding with adhesives, riveting, threaded fasteners, or even yet more bending in the form of a crimped seam. Structural steel and sheet metal are the usual starting materials for fabrication, along with the welding wire, flux, and fasteners that will join the cut pieces. As with other manufacturing processes, both human labor and automation are commonly used.
  • Welding is the main focus of steel fabrication. The formed and machined parts will be assembled and tack welded into place then re-checked for accuracy. A fixture may be used to locate parts for welding if multiple weldments have been ordered.
  • The welder then completes welding as per the engineering drawings if welding is detailed, or as per his/her own judgement if no welding details are provided.
  • Special precautions may be needed to prevent warping of the weldment due to heat. These may include re-designing the weldment to use less weld, welding in a staggered fashion, using a stout fixture, covering the weldment in sand during cooling, and straightening operations after welding.
  • Straightening of warped steel weldments is done with an Oxy-acetylene torch and is somewhat of an art. Heat is selectively applied to the steel in a slow, linear sweep. The steel will have a net contraction, upon cooling, in the direction of the sweep. A highly skilled welder can remove significant warpage using this technique.
