Metal Fabricating Glossary
- A metal forming process that can be performed on a variety of machines. It involves the straining of material, usually flat sheet or strip metal, by moving it around a straight axis and applying stress. The bend is permanently set after removal of the applied stress. Usually, the metal's inside bend radius is in compression and the outside bend radius is in tension.
