Folding & Sheet Metal Bending
At Laser Wizard, we recognised that around a third of our laser cutting jobs required folding, and our customers had to arrange for this next stage of processing. In order to save our customers time and money, Laser Wizard purchased a Safan folding machine for our Sydney factory and began offering sheet metal bending services as an optional extra.
Laser Wizard now has three Safan folding machines in our Sydney factory, capable of bending sheet metal up to 4m long. In July 2015, we recently added a new 1.2m high speed Safan electric pressbrake (E-Brake) to our machinery range. The advantage for our customers is that the faster we can bend components, the cheaper they become.Safan E-Brake presses have incredibly short reaction and stop times, making cycle times 30% faster than a conventional brake press. The Safan E-Brake only uses energy when the top beam is actually moving. This can deliver an energy saving of up to 50% compared with a conventional hydraulic press brake. We have received very positive feedback from our customers about our sheet metal bending and folding services and the new E-Brake press will save our customers even more time and money.
