The use of bending film avoids the risk of imprints on sensitive plate metals such as steel, ground stainless steel, aluminium or mirror V2A / V4A.
The bending film is placed between the workpiece and the die and protects the plate metal from direct tool contact. It consists of polyester or polyamide, is mechanically extremely resilient and can be used for several bending processes. The bending film is easy to handle.
A change can be made quickly and easily. Thanks to the film, the tool is not in direct contact with the material to be bent, so there is no dirtying of the bent profiles. This means that there is no need to rework the plate metal.
Bending with embossing
Bending with embossing is a process where plate metals are completely pressed into the die with great force.Read more
