Bending: Insights into bending technology

Bending, often referred to as bending, is a sheet metal processing method. In bending, sheets are bent along a line using a bending machine or press brake into the desired shape brought. These bending machines exert pressure that exceeds the elastic limits of the material, creating a permanent deformation is created. Modern bending techniques range from manual methods to highly advanced CNC-controlled systems, which have high accuracy and repeatability. Bending is characterized by flexibility, sheets without material loss to bring into a variety of shapes. This makes bending a efficient and cost-effective process in metal processing.

Manual bending

In manual bending, the sheet metal is pressed by hand against a backstop and bent manually over an edge. Manual bending is often used for simple tasks or the production of a prototype.


Mechanical bending

Mechanical bending is done by press brakes or bending machines that are operated by mechanical forces. Mechanical bending is a reliable process for small quantities.


Hydraulic bending

Hydraulic bending uses press brakes or bending machines to press the punch using a hydraulic cylinder that bends the sheet metal. Hydraulic bending allows precise control of the bending operation and enables the production of larger quantities with high repeatability.
