Bending Presses

Here you can see photographs and hear memories of Bending Presses made by Fielding and Platt.

Bending Presses convert straight sections of sheet steel into a bent profile by the exertion of hydraulic pressure.  They were used to bend steel plates in ship construction.

If you remember designing, machining, fitting, installing or maintaining any of the presses here please share your memories of working on them. You can do this by clicking on the machine you worked on, scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking on the words Add a comment about this page.
