Press bending

Bending is a manufacturing process where sheet metals are plastically deformed into complex parts by the application of a bending moment. The plate is pressed to the designed angle and bending radius by flanging a sheet metal part between a punch and die, selected for the individual part geometry.

Method

Along each length, features such as holes, slots, or embosses can be added, making the roll forming process a very cost effective method of achieving a strong, multi-functional shape. Roll forming is also well suited for Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) and Ultra High Strength Steel (UHSS), where material utilization is at a maximum.

Press bending features

Benefits

  • Many different kind of open sections can be produced
  • Welding can be avoided by using bending
  • XXL parts up to 21 meters can be pressed depending on thickness and yield strength

Drawbacks

  • Complex shapes in single-unit production are expensive as the set up cost is divided among few parts
  • Large series can be more suitable for roll-forming with smaller widths

Recommendations

Large series can be more suitable for roll-forming with smaller widths
