Is there a tool or technique for bending aluminum plate?

My goal is to bend 1/4-inch thick aluminum strip to make a mounting bracket for a rectangular box.

a brake press but be careful. Some types of aluminum have a grain and it will split.
Also if the radius is to tight, it can fracture from stress.
1/4" aluminum is pretty strong, but you can use 1/8 and just make the bracket longer. Then you should be able to bend it quite easily on a roofers brake or manual box and pan brake.
If all else fails, and it is just for home handy man use.
You can use a vice and clamp it tight, on the other side clamp a piece of ply wood to distribute the force and then tap it down with a mallet. (not a hammer) You dont want to leave tool marks so the ply wood will help
Do not make the bend to sharp, do not bend to quickly with a mallet or it also may get stress fractures (about 8 to 10 strikes should do it)
I am curious, why aluminum. Steel has a higher tensile strength and its easier to work with .
