It’s hard to know what radius tool you need to get the right bend.
Our experienced team of application specialists asks the right questions and works with you to get high quality, consistent results.
Springback, material marking and variations in sheet thickness make radius bending one of the hardest jobs to control. We work with you to get the results you want. Watch below for more.
With radius bending, there are almost unlimited scenarios and variables. We work to make sure your tool performs with scientific precision.
Every bend involves springback, and radius bends are the most difficult to predict. The material type and thickness combined with the desired dimensions and tolerance will help determine how much springback you’ll have. We will help you plan for and manage this inevitable issue.
If you’re bending an external part on a finished product, there’s no leeway for material marking. Precision grinding, surface enhancements, tool design and material options will help you get the finish you require.
To see if a standard tool may work for you, we use R + MT x 2.2 = V to determine the V opening and the air bend force chart to figure out the tonnage. It’s nice to know you don’t have to buy a special tool if a standard will work for your application.
