Sheet Metal Fabrication with Hydraulic Paddle Press Bending Machine


Sheet metal is an indispensable material in various industries, including automotive, aerospace, and construction. One of the most crucial operations in sheet metal fabrication is bending. Traditional manual sheet bending machines, although functional, often require two operators and suffer from slow processing and accuracy issues. Enter the hydraulic paddle press sheet metal bending machine—a game-changer in the realm of sheet metal fabrication.

The Need for Hydraulic Bending Machines

Conventional manual sheet bending machines operate on wheel and screw-based mechanisms, requiring constant coordination between two operators. This not only slows down the bending operation but also compromises on the accuracy of the bends. The hydraulic sheet bending machine addresses these issues by automating the process and making it a one-person operation, thereby increasing both speed and precision.

How It Works

The hydraulic paddle press sheet metal bending machine consists of a hydraulic cylinder that drives the sheet metal onto the bending tool, executing the bending operation at the point of contact. The hydraulic cylinder is connected to a hydraulic power unit via piping and connectors. A motor, controlled by a relay system, powers the hydraulic unit. The relay system is activated by a paddle, allowing for hands-free operation. This ensures that the operator’s hands are free to hold the sheet in place, making the entire operation automated and efficient.


  • Hydraulic Cylinder: Executes the bending operation.
  • Hydraulic Piping: Connects the cylinder to the hydraulic power unit.
  • Pipe Fittings: Ensures secure connections between hydraulic components.
  • Relay Driver: Controls the motor for hydraulic power.
  • Bending Tool: The tool against which the sheet metal is bent.
  • Y Block: Supports the hydraulic cylinder.
  • Base Plate: Provides a stable platform for the machine.
  • Holding Rods and Supporting Bars: Additional support for the machine.
  • Supporting Frame: The main frame that holds all components.
  • Mounts and Joints: Used for assembling the machine.
  • Screws and Bolts: For securing all components.


  • Single Operator: The machine’s paddle operation allows for a fully automated sheet bending operation using a single operator.
  • Speed and Accuracy: Hydraulic power ensures faster and more accurate bending.
  • Hands-Free Operation: The paddle system allows the operator to focus on positioning the sheet correctly.
