OMS Pittsburgh Installs Largest TRUMPF Press Brake in The U.S.

O’Neal Manufacturing Services (OMS) recently installed a TRUMPF TruBend 8010 press brake in its Pittsburgh, PA fabrication center. TRUMPF confirmed it to be the largest press brake of its kind in the United States.

“We are excited that O’Neal Manufacturing Services installed a highly flexible, large-format TruBend 8000 series machine – the largest press brake TRUMPF offers to the North American market,” said Roger Michaud, product manager for standalone bending, punching, and combination punch-laser machines at TRUMPF Inc.’s North American headquarters in Farmington, Connecticut.

According to Gus Cassida, O’Neal Manufacturing Services’ general manager in Pittsburgh, the new press brake will complement the fabricator’s extended-length burning and large-format vertical machining capabilities already in place. “The overall size of this press brake combined with its incredible accuracy will provide us with even more production repeatability for large, formed parts,” said Cassida. “It will be a game-changer for our business.”

The TRUMPF TruBend 8010 is the newest addition to the Pittsburgh fabricator’s lineup of precision bending and forming capabilities. This impressive 1,100 US-ton machine gives OMS the ability to bend components up to 23 feet. Featuring a 6-Axis back gauge, useable open height of 34 inches, hydraulic tool clamping, and laser-controlled bending, TRUMPF TruBend 8010 makes it possible to accurately bend nearly any application.  

Currently serving OEMs, bridge & DOT, power transmission, rail, truck and trailer, marine, and heavy construction industries, OMS Pittsburgh offers total supply solutions for large parts. Cassida added, “The TRUMPF TruBend 8010 press will allow OMS to expand our large part business with our current customers in addition to expanding our position with new customers and new markets.”
