Press Force Calculation
Bending is one of the most widely used sheet metal working processes. Bending a plate- metal requires a great amount of force, which is applied to the plate metal by means of a folding bench. It is very important to calculate the required pressing force before bending, because overloading can cause damage to the machine.
Using the calculation tool
- Select the desired material
- Enter the length of the material, the sheet thickness and the die opening.
The die opening must be at least 7 times the value of the sheet thickness
- Click on "Calculate"
