Material: Carbon steel
Processing: punching and bending
Function: supported & connected
Bending is a metal forming process in which a force is applied to a piece of sheet metal, causing it to bend at an angle and form the desired shape.
A bending operation causes deformation along one axis, but a sequence of several different operations can be performed to create a complex part.
Bent parts can be quite small, such as a bracket, or up to 20 feet in length, such as a large enclosure or chassis.
