Home Bending and Press Brake Bending and Press Brake At Metal Supermarkets, we can bend sheet and plate products to different degrees using a press brake and other bending techniques. The brake (hydraulic or manual) creates bends by clamping the metal piece in between an upper and lower die. These bends can be made up to an angle of 120 degrees. Using press brakes is considered to be an accurate and extremely fast method of bending metal. We can provide bending and press brake services at many Metal Supermarkets stores.
