Metal sheet bendingMinifaber bends metal sheets, stainless steel, iron, aluminium, brass and special alloys
Minifaber boasts a fifty years expertise in the field of metal bending: a process of metal cold working that takes place by means of a machine, called a bender. The mould of the bender exerts pressure on the flat plate, to obtain different shapes.
Together with the shearing and moulding process, sheet metal bending is used on metal surfaces to obtain semi-finished products and can be carried out on surfaces of different types: our specialization is the bending of aluminium, stainless steel, iron and copper.
The bending of an aluminium sheet is one of the simplest processes, thanks to the well-known properties that characterize the aluminium: softness, malleability and lightness allow to bend it without risk of breaking or causing cracks.
The most characteristic property of steel is its hardness: for the bending of steel, therefore, it is essential to respect precise measures, that allow to obtain an always optimal result.
It is the second most popular metal after aluminium: it is easy, therefore, to understand how the range of its applications is incredibly vast. To cover all those needs, we perform iron bending processes.
Stainless steel bending
Stainless steel is particularly required in sectors such as food, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, due to its high corrosion resistance: in this way, it is possible to maintain high levels of hygiene.
The high electrical and thermal conductivity of copper makes it one of the most requested metals for applications such as those of the building sector. For these specific requests, in the microfaber the bending of the copper is joined to the bending of the other metals.
