Sheet Metal Bending
The second step : Sheet Metal Bending processing
The second step in sheet metal processing involves forming by bending and uses an upper and lower mold to press the workpieces.
The bending process will be separated into manual processing and mechanical arm processing.
For large quantities and high volume repeat orders for specific items, the workpiece will be manufactured through use of a mechanical arm in order to achieve consistent product quality.
Small-volume production of a wide range of different items, workpieces or customized workpieces requiring specialist skills and experience are processed by the operator.
What is sheet metal bending?
Bending process is a segment highly utilized in sheet metal forming with efficiency, stable quality and what’s more, time & cost saving features. The theory of sheet metal bending is to take advantage of upper punch and lower die to extrude, transforming the flat sheet metal to be stereoscopic and curly instead of removing any material.
The bending tool is comprised of upper punch and lower die. The press brake punch and die shall be selected in accordance with the thickness and bending radii of the workpiece to lower the risk of collision between the upper punch and the workpiece.
The Bending Process in Sheet Metal
The bending type BLIKSEN belongs to – Air bending; air bending is the commonly used in sheet metal workshop now. The bending methodology: bending blades press down sheet metal to V die, which is fixed on the bending press, and then makes the sheet metal forming to be solid shapes with requested angle. Furthermore, when the bending blade, namely also uppder die, process the bending operation, the distance between upper die and the V die must be greater than the material thickness.
The materials widely used for bending operation include: Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Carbon Steel, Brass, Copper, Specialized Alloys.
The suggestive bending thickness from BLIKSEN will be Min. 1t & Max. 6t. However there will be dissimilate restriction for different thickness and different materials. The precise bending approach will be recommended by the Technical dep. after evaluating the drawings from clients. Welcome to leave an inquiry for further complete solution.
