Chicago – Chicago Metal Fabricators is pleased to announce that it has added a piece of equipment to its factory floor that will enable it to increase tonnage, enhance productivity, and shorten lead times. With the addition of an Accurpress 1500-ton press brake, CMF will stand in a better position to serve its customers with the latest technology in heavy-duty metal forming.
The Accurpress line of press brakes is well-known for superb engineering, cutting-edge features, multiple options, greater machine functionality, and superior precision.
The new press is a 5-axis, CNC-controlled, 1500-ton brake, with a bed length of 30 feet, a throat depth of 22 inches, and a distance between housings of 26 feet.
CMF now has two press brakes on its factory floor. With more space between its housings, the company can create a solid part that is almost 6 feet larger than work the other unit has been producing.
