CNC Folding

The 2 identical 6 axis Trumpf Trubend are capable of folding accurately up to 3,100 mm in length. They both have 120 tonnes of pressure. Our range of tool selection enables us to design and create simple parts all the way to complicated folding precision components.




LPE Ltd benefits with state-of-art Trumpf TruBend 6 axis folding machines ,using these machines complex components are now easily formed to a high degree of accuracy and repeatability.

Both machines are cost-efficient, simple to operate and have well designed controls. They also, have a choice of tool clamping systems, high positioning accuracy due to 4 cylinder drive and each component is programmed using internal computer and configurable to our customer’s specific requirement. LPE Ltd is confident to guarantee a CNC folding process which can bring 2D design to reality in 3D and allows repeat custom with professional precision.

Frequently Asked Questions

What thickness/ length can you fold?

We’re able to fold 3 meters in any material up to 5 mm thick, including: 6 mm = 2.3 meters 8mm = 1.7 meters 10mm = 1.3 meters 12mm = 0.8 meters and 15mm 0.5 meters

What is the internal radius that can be achieved?

Our standard knife tool will give 1mm internal radius. We also have 4 and 10 radius tooling available . Other radius can be achieved.
