What is Sheet Metal Bending?
Metal bending or folding is the process of giving any metal product a distinctive shape. A machine called a sheet bender takes the metal and folds or bends it until it produces the desired profile required for the final product. The machine must be able to form the metal to the smallest detail in order to achieve the small intricacies and shapes that the client desires. This in turn must be programmed by the technician operating the machine to ensure the metal is folded precisely according to specifications. Once folded and shaped, the metal can then be further treated to ensure its strength and durability.
