Folding & Bending

Sonnex sheetmetal facilities use the latest eco-friendly hybrid-drive press brakes, combined with state of the art software, to provide the best solutions for simple and complicated parts. Our programmers utilise Amada VPSS (Virtual Prototype Simulation Systems) which allow us to reverse engineer a 3D model of your part to a flat ‘unfolded’ shape, creating the exact part to be cut including extra material for the folds and selecting particular tools for the best results.

The major advantage of this software is allowing the programmer to run feasibility tests and machine simulations, eliminating possible errors right at the start of the project. Capabilities are:

  • Length of parts – up to 4200mm;
  • Machine tonnage – up to 250 tonnes.

Tapping, Bevelling & Rolling

Jobs that are tricky for you are easy for us with our tapping and bevelling machine in-house. We have the capacity to tap holes as required up to M24 with a neat finish depending on material thickness and are able to roll up to 6mm thick by 1800mm long material.


Please see the links below for an immense range of fasteners including self-clinching fasteners, nutserts, hexserts and rivet nuts to suit your project.
