Bending (sometimes called flanging or bending) is one of the most important and widely used techniques in sheet metal manufacturing.
Sheet metal bending allows manufacturers to turn a straight sheet metal piece into an angled part, which is more cost-effective than welding or securing two separate parts together.
Sheet metal bending usually works by applying force to the sheet metal in a manner that causes permanent deformation. However, there are many different bending methods and bending machines that can be used to achieve optimum results.
Sheet metal bending is a metalworking technique used to change flat sheet metal parts into V, U, or groove shapes.
This is an important and convenient manufacturing process because bending a flat sheet of metal into a new shape is much cheaper than crafting V, U or channel shapes from solid workpieces or casting them in a foundry. In addition, bending produces a stronger proportion of parts such as two flat metal pieces welded together into a V-shape.
Many types of sheet metal bending involve the use of machines called brakes, sometimes called bending machines or sheet metal folding machines. Force can be applied manually or using, for example, a hydraulic device.
(1) easy deformation, simple processing technology to manufacture a variety of forms of components.
(2) Sheet metal plate structure is light in weight.
(3) processing, because the sheet metal plate surface quality is high, thickness direction dimensional tolerance is small, the surface does not need processing.
(4) Easy to cut, welding, can manufacture large and complex components.
