Turning and forming processes services at Marxam Project.

A turner, as well as a miller or a grinder, is a person who deals with metalworking by machining. The main tasks of a turner are to make threads, cut elements, ream holes, boring, reaming and drilling. On his machines, he mainly performs turning of cylindrical, conical, face and shaped surfaces.

As in any profession related to machining, patience, precision and good eyesight are also required for a turner.

Sheet metal bending - what is it?

Sheet metal bending is a key manufacturing process for transforming flat metal sheets into many different shapes. It involves applying force to the metal in order to bend it along a straight axis. In this process, at Marxam Project we use tools, such as press brakes, bending machines or even manual techniques. The desired end result is achieving precise bends without negatively impacting the integrity of the material. Sheet metal bending is a popular process in various industries, such as automotive, construction, aviation and many more. It allows for the production of custom-designed parts that will serve a wide range of applications.

Principles of sheet metal bending

At Marxam Project, sheet metal bending is a process that is optimized throughout our years of experience. To ensure the quality of the product, we follow these principles:

  • Material Selection - Choose the appropriate type and thickness of sheet metal to ensure it can withstand the bending process without cracking or losing its structural integrity.
  • Bend Allowance - Calculate the bend allowance, which accounts for the material's stretch during bending, to achieve precise dimensions.
  • Bend Radius - Maintain a minimum bend radius to prevent cracking and ensure the metal bends smoothly. This radius is typically equal to the thickness of the material. We also use other bending radii that are dictated by the customer's technology.
  • Grain Direction - Align the bend with the grain direction of the metal to avoid cracking and achieve a cleaner bend. This is a very important aspect of bending technology in the further use of the manufactured details and their durability, especially in the automotive and railway industries.
  • Springback - Consider the springback effect, where the metal slightly returns to its original shape after bending, and adjust the bending angle accordingly.
  • Tool Selection - Use the correct tools, such as press brakes and bending machines, to apply the necessary force and achieve the desired bend.
  • Safety Measures - Follow safety protocols to protect yourself and those around you and maintain a safe working environment during the bending process.

Application of sheet metal bending

Sheet metal bending is widely used in many different industries. At Marxam Project, we always make sure to customize our services to the needs of our client to ensure that every product meets or exceeds the industry standards.

  • Automotive - It is extensively used in automotive manufacturing for creating components such as brackets, chassis, panels, and structural reinforcements.
  • Aviation - In aviation engineering, bending is vital for fabricating aircraft components, including wings, fuselage sections, engine mounts, and control surfaces.
  • Construction and Architecture - Architects and construction engineers utilize it to fabricate cladding, roofing materials, structural supports, and decorative elements in modern building designs.
  • Electronics Manufacturing - The electronics industry employs it to produce enclosures, cabinets, racks, and mounting brackets for various electronic devices and equipment.
  • Furniture Production - It plays a key role in furniture manufacturing, enabling the creation of durable and stylish metal furniture pieces, such as tables, chairs, shelves, and cabinets.
  • Industrial Equipment - Machinery and equipment manufacturers utilize bending to fabricate housings, frames, guards, and other components required for industrial machinery and equipment.
  • Medical Devices - It is applied in the production of medical equipment and devices, including surgical instruments, diagnostic tools, and equipment enclosures
  • Energy Sector - In the energy industry, bending is used for manufacturing components for renewable energy systems, such as wind turbines and solar panels, as well as traditional power generation equipment.

Benefits of sheet metal bending

At Marxam Project we offer many different services, however sheet metal bending is one of the most popular methods of processing metals, and for good reason. Below you can find benefits of using it in manufacturing:

  • Design Versatility - Allows for the creation of complex shapes, providing designers with a wide range of possibilities for product innovation and customization.
  • Material Efficiency - By bending rather than welding or joining separate pieces, it reduces material waste and minimizes production costs, making it a cost-effective manufacturing method.
  • Strength and Durability - Increases strength and structural integrity of the element, making it suitable for applications requiring durable components that can withstand various environmental conditions.
  • Improved Aesthetics - Offers clean bends that enhance the visual appeal of finished products, making it ideal for applications where aesthetics are important, such as architectural elements and consumer goods.
  • Precision and Accuracy - With advanced machinery and techniques, it ensures precise and accurate bending angles, dimensions, and tolerances, resulting in consistent and high-quality components.
  • Improved Structural Integrity - By eliminating the need for additional fasteners or joints, it reduces potential points of weakness in the structure, resulting in stronger and more reliable final products.
  • Versatility in Material Selection - Can be performed on a wide range of materials, including steel, aluminum, copper, and alloys, providing flexibility in material selection to meet specific application requirements.
  • Scalability - Can be scaled up or down to accommodate varying production volumes, making it suitable for both prototyping and mass production applications across diverse industries.

Factors influencing sheet metal bending

At Marxam Project to make sure that every element meets quality standards, we have formulated a set of factors we take into consideration while planning the sheet metal bending process.

  • Material Type and Thickness - The type of metal being used, as well as its thickness, significantly impact the bending process. Different materials and thicknesses require varying levels of force and bending techniques to achieve the desired results.
  • Bend Radius - The bend radius, which refers to the curvature of the bend, influences the ease of bending and the amount of force required. Smaller bend radii typically require more force and may increase the risk of material deformation or cracking.
  • Grain Direction - Sheet metals have a grain structure that affects their behavior during bending. Bending parallel to the grain direction usually results in better bend quality and reduced risk of cracking compared to bending perpendicular to the grain.
  • Tooling and Equipment - The selection of appropriate bending tools and equipment, such as press brakes, bending machines, dies, and punches, is crucial for achieving accurate and consistent bends. The size, shape, and condition of the tools can affect the quality of the bends.
  • Bend Angle - The angle at which the sheet metal is bent influences the amount of deformation and springback. Larger bend angles may require more force and can increase the risk of material distortion or springback after bending.
  • Surface Finish Requirements - Surface finish requirements, such as smoothness and cosmetic appearance, can influence the choice of bending method and tooling. Certain surface finishes may be more prone to scratching or marring during the bending process.
  • Environmental Conditions - Factors such as temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure can affect the behavior of sheet metal during bending. Changes in environmental conditions may necessitate adjustments to bending parameters to maintain consistency and quality.
  • Operator Skill and Experience - The skill and experience of the operator performing the bending operation play a significant role in achieving accurate and high-quality bends. Proper training and technique are essential for minimizing errors and ensuring consistent results.
