Crimping is a form of bending, typically used for structural steel plates. The machine that bends the metal is called a press brake. There are several types of press brakes, but Rig-Up Services uses a large Chicago Diess mechanical press brake. In a mechanical press, energy is added to a ﬂywheel with an electric motor. a clutch engages the ﬂywheel to power a crank mechanism that moves the ram vertically. Accuracy and speed are two advantages of the mechanical press.
The lower part of the press contains a shaped groove. This is called the die. The upper part of the press contains a punch that will press the sheet metal down into the shaped die, causing it to bend.
Rig-Up Services offers the following die shapes:
The crimping of steel plate adds rigidity, decreases warping, and provides more structural integrity when compared to uncrimped steel sheets. Which die style and shape used is based on the Customer request or speciﬁcation.
