Metal forming and fabricating machines are machine tools used to fabricate parts by the shaping, rolling and molding of metal.
Metal Forming and Fabricating Machines Categories

Brazing Equipment (37 suppliers)

Brazing equipment joins two or more materials with a molten braze filler, which typically does not fuse with the base materials. Brazing is useful in joining dissimilar materials such as metals and ceramics or metallurgically incompatible alloys.

Cold Heading Machines (18 suppliers)

Cold heading machines form a metal blank into shaped parts by using a reciprocating ram to force a punch into a preformed die. Heat is not added during part manufacturing.

Drawbenches and Drawing Machines (31 suppliers)

Drawbenches and drawing machines are use tensile forces to reduce the size of metal sheets, wire, tubes and rods by drawing metal strips through a drawplate or dies.

Forging Machines (hot forming) (32 suppliers)

Forging machines (hot forming) use compressive force and a high workpiece temperature to shape metal by plastic deformation.  A type of hot forming, hot forging involves the plastic deformation of a metal at a temperature and strain rate where recrystallization and deformation occur simultaneously. This prevents strain hardening, which can reduce ductility and contribute to brittle failure and structural fatigue.

Hydroforming Presses (30 suppliers)

Hydroforming presses use fluid pressure to form sheet and tube shaped source metal materials to the shape of a die.  Hydroforming allows for severe shape deformation and generally produces strong parts of uniform thickness.

Induction Heaters (108 suppliers)

Induction heaters use an electrical source to drive alternating current (AC) through a coil to heat metal objects.

Laser Cutting and Welding Machines (304 suppliers)

Laser cutting machines and laser welding machines use a high-powered laser to cut or perforate materials in plate or sheet form.

Laser Processing Equipment (601 suppliers)

Laser processing equipment uses high-powered lasers to cut, trim, perforate, weld, or join a variety of materials in plate or sheet form.

Manufacturing Cells and Systems (154 suppliers)

Manufacturing cells and manufacturing systems consist of a number of machines organized together to perform multiple operations on a workpiece.

Metal Spinning Machines (11 suppliers)

Metal spinning machines are used in metal spinning (spin forming, flow forming), a process by which a metallic disk or tube is rotated at high speeds and formed into an axially symmetric part.

Oxy-fuel Cutting and Welding Equipment (95 suppliers)

Oxy-fuel cutting and welding equipment melt an areas with an arc and then use a high-velocity, high-temperature, ionized gas to make cuts.

Plasma Cutting Equipment (139 suppliers)

Plasma cutting machines use a high-velocity, high-temperature ionized gas to make cuts in materials and parts.

Plasma Welding Equipment (167 suppliers)

Plasma welding equipment melt areas with an arc and then use a high-velocity, high-temperature ionized gas to make welds.

Press Brakes (266 suppliers)

Press brakes are metal forming machines used to bend and fold sheet and plate metal by pressing it between tooling referred to as a punch and a die.

Riveters and Riveting Machines (148 suppliers)

Riveters and riveting machines insert fasteners through aligned holes in parts to be joined, then press or hammer them from the insertion side to provide the second retaining head. 

Roll Forming Machines (195 suppliers)

Roll forming machines bend metal sheet into channels and other cross-sectional shapes. They use paired rollers called roll stations to form metal parts with long lengths, often in large quantities. Roll forming equipment that is used to shape steel can fabricate parts with greater strength-to-weight ratios than can be obtained via alternative methods.

Rolling Mills (74 suppliers)

Rolling mills are machines that shape metal by passing it through two rolls. They are used to flatten and reduce metal to a sheet or plate.

Shearing Machines (sheet metal) (274 suppliers)

Shearing machines (sheet metal) use a shearing or scissor-like action to cut metal into sheets or strips.

Spring and Wire Forming Machines (36 suppliers)

Spring and wire forming machines are used to form wire into springs and other shapes.

Stretch Forming Machines (11 suppliers)

Stretch forming equipment produces complex shapes by stretching a metal sheet, plate or extrusion over a form die.

Superplastic Forming Machines (8 suppliers)

Superplastic forming equipment produces complex shapes in a high-temperature process which elongates and deforms a metal blank.

Swaging Machines (47 suppliers)

Swaging machines form a workpiece by forcing it into a die to reduce or increase the diameter of tubes or rods.

Thread Rolling Machines (36 suppliers)

Thread rolling machines generate threads by displacing and flowing metal into a thread shape.

Tube and Pipe Bending Machines (308 suppliers)

Tube and Pipe Bending Machines are used to bend or coil metal pipe or tubing to a desired radius.

Tube End Forming Machines (111 suppliers)

Tube end forming machines are used to perform various operations on the end of a tube, including end reduction, cutting, end expansion, flanging, chamfering, roll beading, flaring, facing and notching.

Ultrasonic Cutting and Welding Equipment (68 suppliers)

Ultrasonic welding and cutting machines melt areas with an arc and then use a high-velocity, high-temperature ionized gas to make cuts.

Wire Mills and Wire Flattening Machines (52 suppliers)

Wire mills and wire flattening machines produce square or rectangular flat wire as well as shaped wire with contoured cross-sections and complex profiles.
