Metal bending is a manufacturing process that produces a V-shape, U-shape, or channel shape along a straight axis in the work piece, most common in sheet metal. At SMI Plaatwerk we can create bends for work pieces with a maximum lenght up to 3 meters and a maximum thickness of 5 mm. Over time, SMI has produced a wide range of different products in markets with the highest standards such as the Super yacht industry and defence.
When looking for sheet metal bending in series, our sheet metal shop in leeuwarden is equipped with 3 different machine presses to deliver fast and with the highest precision. With our quality control system, every product is tested and checked for the smallest devitions to guarantee the highest standards. By bending the metal, manufacturers can reduce the number of parts in a construction and thereby the necessary welding process to speed up delivery time and reduce costs.
