BENDING AND FORMING METAL – A HOW-TO SERIES FROM SWEBEND

Bending and Formal Metal 1

Our partners SweBend the bending machine specialists are launching an informative series of ‘How to’ articles on bending which will cover:

  • How materials behave
  • The core principles of forming or bending metal
  • The different types of bending machines developed to form certain shapes/presentations/forms of steel
  • How to purchase a bending machine
  • The future of bending machines

We’ll be sharing these useful articles here over the coming months but in the meantime here’s a preview of what to expect.

Bending and Formal Metal 5

1.    How materials behave

Looking at the mechanical properties of materials such as yield strength, elasticity and density as well as hardness and the thermal properties of materials.

2.    The core principles of forming or bending metal

How to shape and form material, plastic and elastic bending, cold forming vs hot forming and the potential limitations in Bending.

3.    The different types of bending machines developed to form certain shapes/presentations/forms of steel 

A look at the forming and bending challenges SweBend is currently tackling with in-depth reviews of section bending, angle rolls, plate rolls, machines for flights, augers and spiralling, plate straightening machines and special forming machines as well as discussions on:

  • Compact machines
  • Smart solutions over quick solutions
  • Performance parts in bending
  • The importance of precision in calculations
  • Why the operator is the most important focus point in designing a machine interface

4.    A guide to purchasing the right bending machine

What should you expect from a bending machine? How do you prepare the right information to get an accurate quote? How should you compare different quotes? Which parameters are important and which are not? Just some of the questions SweBend will answer in this tutorial on how to purchase the right machine with particular focus on defining the right specifications and the right capacity for your requirements.

5.    The future of bending machines

This final article will discuss SweBend’s estimations for the future looking at where the development of bending technology is going and what clients should expect from their bending specialist. It will also highlight potential problems and where we expect the most innovation to occur.
