Hydraulic Press Brakes

A press brake, also known as a brake press, is a machine tool for bending sheet and plate material, most commonly sheet metal.  It forms predetermined bends by clamping the workpiece between a matching punch and die.  Typically, two C-frames form the sides of the press brake, connected to a table at the bottom and on a moveable beam at the top. The bottom tool is mounted on the table with the top tool mounted on the upper beam.  Reference http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Press_brake
