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

  1. Select the desired material
  2. 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
  3. Click on "Calculate"
