Metal Bending Cost Reduction Tips

Metal Bending Process

Bending is the process of deforming sheet metal into an angle. Sheet metal is forced by a press brake between an upper and lower tool. The punch being the upper component and the die being the lower tool. The press brake is what manipulates the punch and die to apple a press force.

This is a great method of creating 3D shapes from 2D sheets.

Cost Reduction Tips

  • Avoid
    • Odd angles
    • Complex bend combinations
    • Adding more bends than necessary
    • Using slots for a time, and bend the metal later on manually. This will help to lower shipping costs as well as takes up less storage room.
  • Design with packing in mind
  • Include straight edges that will run parallel to a bend
