Fabrication and Press Brake

At AMR we are not just a Laser Cutting Company, we also offer an in-house fabrication and Press Brake service , to help our customers meet their project deadlines.


AMADA HFE – 80-25 Press Brake

The HFE generation of press brake, are ideally suited for producing complex components with tight tolerances

This is a 7 axis CNC , which delivers 80MT of bending force over 2570mm.

Programmed using 2D software and a wide range of Digitised tooling to draw the part profile, it calculates the developed length, backgauge  axes position, punch penetration, spring back and detects collisions between part and machine.

It also has a patented digital protractor linked to the numerical control, this device ensure accurate measurements of the bent angle.

The operator ca simply use the function button which transmits the measured angle value to the control, which then recalculates the punch penetration giving a perfect angle.

This offers a more precise, repeatable, quality component than that produced by traditional press braking.


Our fabrication & welding facility exceeds 3,000 sq.m [32,000 sq.ft] and is serviced with overhead cranes offering combined lifting up to 48te with 6.5m below the hook.

We have teams of highly skilled operatives and coded welders to ensure an efficient manufacturing service.

Self-Contained Pressurised Blast Cabinet using Reclaimed Ali Oxide. Suitable for cleaning, removing light corrosion and other deposits, roughening, preparing surfaces and etching. Internal cabinet dimensions: 44″W x 26″D x 30″H

Grit Blasting
In our 300 sq.m (3,200 sq.ft)blast facility using SFEG AH-24 portable abrasive blast pots, our facility operates chilled iron grit and can achieve steel surface preparation grades from Sa1 up to Sa3 in accordance with BS EN ISO 8501-1: 2007.

The blast medium is reclaimed and filtered using a grit recovery system. 

Thermal metal spraying
Using Metallisation MK73-FS equipment our trained operatives are able to apply corrosion protection coatings of zinc, aluminium and zinc/aluminium alloys onto steelwork at thicknesses to suit your specification. Thermal metal spray is commonly used as an alternative to galvanising.

Industrial Coatings using Airless & Conventional spray
Utilising our spray rooms totalling 550 sq.m and Graco Merkur X48-1 high pressure airless spray units we are able to provide industrial coating systems to Network Rail and Highways Specifications and are approved to the National Highways Sector Scheme 19A for the corrosion protection of ferrous materials by industrial coating.
