Bending of sheet metal is a standard and vital process in the manufacturing industry. Sheet metal bending is the plastic deformation of the work over an axis, creating a change in the part’s geometry. Similar to other metal forming processes, bending changes the shape of the workpiece, while the volume of material will remain the same. In some cases, bending may produce a small change in sheet thickness.
For most operations, however, bending will provide virtually no difference in the thickness of the sheet metal. In addition to creating a desired geometric form, bending is also used to impart strength and stiffness to sheet metal, to change a part’s moment of inertia, for cosmetic appearance and to eliminate sharp edges.
Our Metal Bending Services
We have a 120-ton break with a wide range of dies for different bending sequences.
We can bend any type of material up to ¾” thick depending on the material, and length of bend.
