SAFETY RULES TO FOLLOW WHEN USING A BENDING MACHINE
What is bending used for?
Metal bending is a type of plastic deformation that permanently and irreversibly changes the shape of metal profiles and sheets. Among the various forms and shapes that steel comes in, sheet metal is the most versatile and easiest to work with. Other forms of metal include tubes and sections, both of which can also be bent using SweBend bending machines.
Tubes, pipes, and sections often need to be bent to be used in several manufacturing applications, including gates, railings, and raw materials for other industries such as the automotive or aeronautic industries, ventilation systems, and electrical towers.
In addition, sheet metal is usually bent to increase its stiffness and strength and change its appearance for its final use, usually for much heavier applications such as cargo ships, rail and road fluid tankers, wind towers and turbines, and pressure vessels.
