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.
Fractory’s partners allow maximum bending edge length of 7200 mm and 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.
Minimum bending radius depends on the plasticity 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.
