What is the role of bending tools such as punches in the manufacturing process of metal parts?

Bending tools such as punches are essential. They are designed to apply a controlled force to the material and create the desired bend. The different tool shapes and sizes allow for a variety of bends, whether straight bends, U-bends , V-bends or intricate bends .

Case Study of bending sheet metal

Metal Bending Service for the Heavy Transport Sector

A leading company in the heavy transport sector, specializing in manufacturing components for industrial vehicles and transport equipment, faced a significant challenge in optimizing and forming the fabrication of essential components shape. The company sought to improve efficiency while ensuring high quality in sheet metal bending shape for the construction of their heavy vehicles. They needed a partner skilled in various sheet metal and materials bending method, especially air bending and roll bending, to bend sheet metals with precision.

The company's main challenges were in the sheet metal bending process, particularly when using the press brake for bending metal sheets. These parts required meticulous forming and bending to ensure both performance and safety. A key focus was on achieving bending method for desired bend angle shape and maintaining the correct bend radius to avoid cracking in bent sheet metal. Additionally, managing material thickness and using the right bending methods to form the sheet metals were crucial.
