What is sheet metal bending?

Sheet metal bending is a process that involves applying force to a sheet of metal to cause it to bend along a straight axis. The bend angle, or the degree to which the metal is bent, can be controlled by adjusting the punch and die tool used in the process.

The sheet metal bending process creates various shapes and forms of sheet metal, such as bends, welding flanges, and stamping parts, which make it an efficient method for mass production.

Bending can be made through various methods. The most common method of sheet metal bending is called press brake bending, which uses a press brake machine to bend the metal.

Where is sheet metal used?

Sheet metal components are used in:

  •   Construction: Bending components for construction projects such as roofing and siding
  •   Automotive: Bending sheet metal for use in body parts such as doors, hoods, and fenders
  •  Aerospace: Bending sheet metal for use in the manufacturing of fuselage, doors, and fenders
  •  Advertising: Bending sheet metal for signage and advertising, including signs and billboards
  •   Food processing: Bending sheet metal for beverages, kitchen equipment
  •   Transportation: Bending sheet metal parts for cars, trains, buses, and aircraft
  •   Art: Bending sheet metal for use in building cladding

How is it fabricated?

A bend is created using a press brake bending, a sheet metal bending method involving a press brake machine consisting of a bed and a ram with a punch and die tool.

The process works as follows:

Loading the sheet metal: Firstly, a metal sheet is placed on the bed of the press brake machine, typically on a block with a V-shaped groove.

Bending: The punch is then pressed into the die using a hydraulic cylinder or a mechanical system. This force causes the sheet metal to deform and take on the shape of a die, creating a bend at the desired angle. The process can be repeated to create multiple bends in the sheet metal.

Unloading: Once the metal sheet is bent, it is removed from the die by hand or using a robot with an arm gripper. Some parts might require finishing processes such as laser cutting to deburr the edges of the workpiece, painting, or anodizing to modify its appearance and mechanical properties.
