Roll forming machines are one of the most equipment applied in metal fabrication industry; however, metal sheet bending and cutting machine cannot be replaced for making some kinds of products.

Metal sheet bending machine (known as metal sheet folding machine as well) and metal sheet cutting machine (named as metal sheet shearing machine also) are working under hydraulic power driving but controlled manually, mostly by foot control.

Cold roll forming machines are the best choice for the continuous and automatic production of cold formed metal products, and people always support for hydraulic bending machine when they have needs for producing a few pieces of simple bending products, like small hat channels, a ridge cap, c/z/u channels etc, and when they don’t have the correct sizes of steel strips (steel strip widths or lengths), hydraulic cutting machine is what they can use.

There are heavy-duty metal sheet bending machine and metal sheet cutting that could handle with materials over 5mm, and they have other names as hydraulic press brake and hydraulic guillotine shearing machine which usually are built and supplied as major products of manufacturers , while MAONX® produces hydraulic bending machine and hydraulic cutting machine as auxiliary equipment, so these equipment can only handle with metal sheets less than 1mm thickness and length 4 meters or 6 meters.

Different bending moulds will be used on the bending machine to produce different bended profiles, and a steel product cannot be made with only one-time bending, but a few times bending. Two operators will be needed to bend long metal or steel products (longer than 500mm) by feeding the materials, taking out and feeding again until the final products are made. A hydraulic oil pump is equipped to provide power for hydraulic bending machine or hydraulic cutting machine to work. A pedal is built so that operators can control the running of machines.
