More About Sheet Metal Bending

What is Sheet Metal Bending?

Sheet metal bending is a manufacturing process that transforms flat sheets of metal material into various shapes by applying controlled pressure without changing the thickness. Using specialty dies and presses, force creates accurate and repeatable bends on sheet metal, forming it around an axis line.

Common techniques like air bending, bottom bending, and coining use different tooling to produce different angled bends and shapes depending on the requirements. Factors like metal type, thickness, desired angles, part size, and volume determine the bending methodology selected.

With CNC equipment, the location and force applied can be precisely controlled to efficiently mass-produce components with tight tolerances and consistent results from one part to the next. The combination of efficiency, precision, and flexibility makes sheet metal bending an ideal process to inexpensively shape sheet stock into finalized enclosures, brackets, containers, building materials, and more.
