It just won t really be at maximum strength.
Bending stainless steel sheet radius.
The bending angle is 90 sheet thickness 5 mm and the inside radius is 6 mm.
Place a second bend mark on the edge of the stainless steel sheet parallel to the edge you just marked.
If you re bending 0 020 thick material use a 0 020 radius.
Measure and mark the bend location along one edge of the stainless steel sheet with the tape measure and awl.
A cutout or the edge of your.
For most applications with stainless steel or aluminum you can get away with a zero radius bend on anything under 0 050 thick.
Minimum bend includes minimum closeness of cutout to bend radius cold rolled steel 14 gauge 0 075 1 91mm.
This tool allows you to determine tonnage internal radius v die opening and minimum flange you just have to insert the characteristics of the sheet metal to be bent.
2 the stainless steel sheet has a strong rebound tendency compared with carbon steel when bending.
To use the tables below.
Bending can be done with less concern for stresses caused during forming operation the radius can be near zero for thin sheet metal.
The tool can calculate the required bending force for bending aluminum stainless steel mild steel and weldox or strenx high strength steels.
Another way to determine the k factor is by following the rule of thumb.
Grain direction is formed in metal in the direction in which the sheet was rolled at the steel mill.
In other words if you re bending 1 8 sheet use a tool with a 1 8 radius to form the inside of the bend.
First we must start with the k factor.
3 the percentage of elongation of stainless steel plate is lower than the carbon steel the bending angle of the workpiece r is larger than that of carbon steel or there is the possibility of cracks.
Grain direction is not to be confused with surface finishes.
Choose a bend radius that matches your minimum bend.
