FORMING

About the Forming Process

Forming, or cold bending, is the process of bending plate or sheet steel using hydraulic pressure and high-strength tooling. The type of tooling determines the shape of bend in the plate or sheet. SteelMart uses forming to make custom dimensional parts that are not available in a standard stock size. SteelMart runs three press brakes within the plant. We can form light gauge steel up to 3/4″ plate.
