Reliable materials are the basis for the successful completion of the project and the long service life of buildings or equipment. Therefore, it is so important to pay attention to each stage, from the design to the material and method of manufacturing structural elements. Sheet bending is a new way of working with metal, in which it is given the desired shape without the use of welding or other thermal joining methods, in other words, this operation allows you to change the shape, leaving the linear dimensions the same. This does not violate the structure of the metal and, therefore, allows you to create more durable products. This technology belongs to the “cold” metalworking methods and, as a rule, has a minimum percentage of defective products.
Application of metal sheet bending
Various metal products today are integral elements of many structures. Today, it is aluminum sheet bending that is used to create fasteners, arcs, shelving and many other products, which increases their technical characteristics and allows you to achieve maximum results. In addition, bending is the preferred form of aluminum processing, since this metal has a high thermal and energy conductivity, which makes it difficult to weld.
Due to its properties, galvanized metal has found application in many areas, for example, in the construction of buildings or mechanical engineering, it is used for mounting roofs, covering walls of temporary structures.
Bending of galvanized sheet is widely used in industry and allows to maintain a high level of corrosion resistance.
Steel is also a well known metal. Its high practicality and resistance to external influences is widely used not only in everyday life for roofing, but also in such industries as shipbuilding, instrument making. Since it is often used for interior decoration, steel sheet bending is an actual way to work with this metal – this technology, unlike welding, does not leave seams and looks more beautiful. However, this technology is only suitable for conventional low carbon steels.
The most effective technology is the bending of thin sheet metal – today it is possible to obtain products of the most bizarre shapes from such material. In addition, strong standard elements are obtained by this method – metal profiles, parts of various designs, elements of radio equipment.
Sheet metal bending cost
It should be noted that bending is one of the most low-cost metalworking methods, despite the fact that it has a number of advantages, including dimensional accuracy, strength, manufacturing speed, and high efficiency. The price of sheet metal bending depends on several parameters: type of metal sheet characteristics length of the workpiece type of bending, etc.
