Metal forming and fabricating machines are machine tools used to fabricate parts by the shaping, rolling and molding of metal.
Brazing Equipment (35 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.

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 (29 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.

Roll Forming Machines (191 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.
