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.
The Bystronic Xpert press brake, with revolutionary ByVision Bending control, intuitive operator interface and dynamic hydraulic crowning system, provides the ultimate bending experience. Voice Control for managing manual operator functions; LAMS ensures exact angles from the first bend regardless of material; PartID code scanning for program loads and part traceability.
