Sheet Metal Thickness

Dave,

I'm posting a link to a new video from Trumpf just to show a better, close up view of the forming process. The video is about the issues press brake operators face due to inconsistent material thickness in parts. Trumpf have an answer to this problem, but most people don't have machines that are this "smart". We surely don't.

 

Material does very greatly between suppliers, in the delivered stack of sheet metal and even throughout the same sheet. Making close tolerance work a challenge. But that's not a problem I think NX can solve.

 

So please share this with your team if they would like to see a close up view of the bending process and it's challenges.

 

Thanks,

Ryan

Hi Ryan,
Thanks for the input. Yes of course I don't think it's something we can't factor for in NX. I'll pass on the link

cheers
