Metal folding & forming

Robust folding & forming machinery automation for metals.

Facteon's forming, folding and bending machinery is highly automated and flexible, allowing single manufacturing lines to produce multiple shapes and products with ease. Our solutions are available as standalone, fully integrated or Industry 4.0 enabled-systems. All Facteon folding and forming machinery is designed to reduce downtime, maximise automation and enable custom product features. Most importantly, our equipment produces the highest quality product in the most cost-effective way.

Folding & Bending Machines

Specialised folding and bending methods prevent damage to critical product features and cosmetic faces during manufacture. Our highly accurate processes also ensure the product is produced to the correct geometry and quality level. Facteon offers a variety of methods including servo-controlled and self-adjusting folding angles, as well as stretch forming. We also offer automatic model size and radius change systems.

Forming Machines

Facteon's cabinet wrapper and panel forming processes are available as standalone systems or integrated traditional hydraulic press and tool systems. These form the wrapper emboss and special connection features. Depending on your needs, side flanges can be formed in the same process. Quick change tooling and automatic model change transfers reduce downtime.

Intelligent Roll Forming Machines

Blank cut-to-length sheets can be roll formed to create a wide range of complex shapes. Predictive software is used to develop roll forming stands and roller shapes to produce repeatable forms while minimising marking and flare. Roll forming is often utilised to produce cost-effective case connections or pre-formed flanges.

Custom U-Folding & End Folding Machines

True tangent folding technology creates two or four folds of both small and large radii. To suit your cycle time requirements, folders can perform dual functions, such as front and rear folds. Alternatively, additional folders can be populated to produce specific product features.

End Forming

Specialised folding and bending methods are used to accurately form flanges in preparation for the lock seaming process. It's essential that these flanges are precise in shape and size to ensure correct product dimensions and sufficient strength.
