At Northeast Laser, we deliver fast, competitively priced press brake forming services from a single prototype or short-run through production. We are the metal forming experts not afraid to take on tough challenges like exotic metal forming or complex bends, gussets and rib forming. If you’re looking for complex bending and forming, that other metal forming companies have said can’t be done, talk to the metal forming technical staff at Northeast Laser.
Laser cutting and metal forming is our primary business and we continuously invest in equipment that will allow us to provide both precision and quality at a great price. Our latest acquisition is a 2015 Cincinnati Press Brake 175 Tons x 12′ with 5 Axis control, Universal Tooling capabilities (American, European forward and reverse facing). With 10′ between housing x 40″ backgauge, this press brake provides greater speed, accuracy and complex bends that other metal formers just can’t do.
Whether you are looking for a single formed metal prototype part or production run, our technical staff will work with your design to achieve the part and functionality you need. We provide precision metal forming across nearly all manufacturing industries including OEMs, machine tool manufacturers, automotive in addition to working with other machine shops that rely on our expertise. We form a wide variety of materials including forming sheet metal, stainless, aluminum, armor plate, titanium and more.
Complex Sheet Metal Forming
One of the most technically challenging operations in sheet metal fabrication is press brake forming. At Northeast Laser, our experience in forming sheet metal dates back 25 years over which we’ve formed some of the most complicated shapes possible.
We take great pride in providing accurate, quality, on-time delivery of metal forming services to Ohio companies in Akron, Canton and Cleveland and also OEM manufacturers across the US and Canada.

Other Metal Forming: If you do not see the material that you would like to bend or form in this list, please contact us and we’ll do the research to find out if it’s suitable for our forming process. Some materials require that we temper to make it suitable for forming and brake work, then heat treated back to the hardness required. Contact our technical staff at 330-633-2897 to find out more about which metals that can be formed.

Examples of Our Bending and Forming Services
At NEL, we have the expertise to create the bent contours on compound angles on this laser cut piece. This guard is part of a larger assembly.
This press brake formed part can be made out of aluminum, mild steel, and stainless steel. The key feature of this part was to create the bends without distorting the hole beyond tolerance.
This bracket is laser cut and bent using the press brake forming tool. We developed custom tooling to create bends. This product also features tack welding and weather coating powder coating.
This galvanized piece features laser cutting, press brake forming and stamped molding.
This OEM component part is made from mild steel, stainless steel and 1095 steel. It is laser cut, press brake formed and features the use of custom tooling. These parts are tumble polished and/or powder coated.
This 3/4" bent steel sample piece utilizes custom tooling and press brake forming to create the heavy bend. In-house custom tooling can cut the production costs.
This intricate panel assembly is made from 20 gauge, laser cut steel and required 5 forming operations to create the bend. It was then powder coated.
This part was created for the transportation industry and features our laser cutting process and press brake forming process as well as machining. The precision forming on the channel was an integral feature of this product.
This laser cut bracket was manufactured from mild steel and stainless steel. The processes used were laser cutting, press brake formed, gusseted, and resistance welding.
This multi-step product is made from mild steel and is laser cut and bent. We developed custom tooling to create the extrusions, gussets and ribs. This piece also showcases a spot welded nut that was resistance welded.
This piece is a demonstration of our precision nitrogen laser cutting as well as custom made tooling to bend the part.
Not every laser cutting company can create gussets on the bend like NEL laser cutting company can. This laser cut steel piece features the laser cutting process and the press brake forming process.
Heavy gauge tight offset forming.
Another example of tight forming as including partial radius forming.
