Gmetal Bending Service

According to the needs of different products, Gmetal provides different bending methods, and the following are the main bending methods that Gmetal can provide:

  • Air Bending: In air bending, the punch does not fully contact the workpiece; instead, the bending angle is controlled to adjust the shape of the workpiece. Therefore, this method is suitable for products with various bending angle requirements and does not require frequent tool changes, which improves production efficiency.
  • Bottoming: Bottoming, also known as coining, involves fully bending the metal sheet into the bottom of the die to create precise and sharp bending angles. It is suitable for cases where precise bending is needed, such as parts with strict angle requirements.
  • Roll Bending: Roll bending is a bending technique that involves placing long strips or tubes of metal on a set of rollers to bend them into the desired shape. Roll bending can achieve larger bending radii, making it suitable for longer metal materials.
  • U-Bending: U-bending is similar to V-bending, where the metal sheet is pressed into the U-shaped die to achieve a U-shaped bend.
The Process of Bending

The Process of Bending

Gmetal provides bending service, the main process is as following:

  1. Material Preparation: The first step in the bending process is to prepare the material that will be bent. This typically involves cutting the sheet metal to the required size and ensuring its surface is clean and free from any debris or contaminants.
  2. Tooling Setup: Next, the appropriate tooling is set up on the bending machine. Tooling includes the punch, which applies force to the material, and the die, which supports and shapes the material during bending.
    Material Placement: The prepared material is then placed on the bending machine, with one end positioned between the punch and the die. The positioning of the material is crucial to achieving the desired bend accurately.
  3. Bending Process: Once the material is properly positioned, the bending machine’s press applies force to the punch, which pushes the material into the die. The material is deformed and shaped as it is pressed against the die’s surface, resulting in the desired bend.
  4. Release and Inspection: After the bending process is completed, the press is released, and the bent material is removed from the machine. The bent part is inspected to ensure it meets the required specifications, such as angle, radius, and dimensional accuracy.
  5. Additional Operations: Depending on the application, additional operations may be required after bending. For example, further forming, trimming, or assembly may be necessary to complete the fabrication process and create the final product.

The Characteristics of Bending

Bending involves specialized techniques and equipment to bend metal sheets or objects accurately and efficiently, and it has some characteristics. The following are the main characteristics:

  • Precision Bending: Metal bending services are known for their precision and accuracy. Advanced machinery, such as press brakes or roll benders, is used to achieve exact angles and dimensions according to the client’s specifications.
  • Complex Shapes: Metal bending services can create complex shapes and forms that might be challenging or impossible to achieve using other manufacturing methods. This includes curved, tapered, or multi-dimensional bends.
  • Wide Range of Industries: Metal bending services serve various industries, including construction, automotive, aerospace, electronics, and more. The ability to work with different metals makes it a versatile solution for different applications.
  • High Volume Production: Metal bending services can cater to both small-scale and high-volume production needs. With automated equipment, they can efficiently produce a large number of bent metal parts or components within a short period.
