Sheet metal bending is the forming of sheet metal by application of force. Metal bending is used to apply a preferred shape to the metal without welding. We carry out bending of sheet metal parts using electrical and hydraulic CNC bending presses. Read more about bending methods, our capabilities and tips for designing.
Fractory’s partners allow a maximum bending edge length of 7200 mm and a pressing force up to 1000 tons. The machinery is highly accurate when it comes to positioning and repetition, and has a wide array of capabilities, including hemming and seaming.
The minimum bending radius depends on the plasticity and thickness of the material. Generally, we recommend the largest possible bending radius to avoid cracking on the outer edge. Fractory offers minimum bending radius as small as 1 mm.
