What is Metalworking Equipment?

Metalworking equipment refers to the tools and machinery used to shape, form, and manipulate metal for a variety of manufacturing and construction purposes. It includes a wide range of machines and tools that are used to cut, shape, bend, form, and finish metal parts and products.

There are many different types of metalworking equipment, such as:

  • Lathes, which are used to shape metal by turning it against a cutting tool
  • Milling machines, which use a rotating cutter to remove material from a workpiece
  • Drill presses, which use a rotating cutting tool to make holes in metal
  • Grinders, which use abrasive wheels to smooth and finish metal surfaces
  • Press brakes, which use a punch and die to bend metal into specific shapes
  • Shears, which use a cutting blade to trim or cut metal sheets
  • Welding equipment, which fuses or join two or more pieces of metal or thermoplastics together

These machines are used in a wide range of industries such as automotive, aerospace, construction, manufacturing and many more.

In addition to machine tools, metalworking equipment also includes a wide range of hand tools, such as saws, chisels, hammers, files, and pliers, as well as measuring and layout tools like micrometers, calipers, and squares.
