Sheet metal paper

Hi sheet metal experts,

every day I clash with my work colleagues to explain how it's bending in the air. I explain that with bending in the air the radius of bend is not equal to the radius of the punch. Do you have a document explaining bending in the air ?

Thank you...

Hi @cubalibre00,

 

Please take a look at the following link: http://sheetmetal.me/tooling-terminology/air-bending/

 

Another customer also suggested a phone app that provides the bend radius and other parameters when given the material grade, thickness and angle.  Search for 'LVD Bend Advisor' in Google Play store or the Apple equivalent.
