WARNING: The force required for bending is influenced by multiple factors such as the friction between the material and the matrix, the thickness of the material, variations in solidity in the material, the grain direction in the material, hardening of the material and other parameters. This estimator calculates the approximate force required for braking the press for “in the air” bending. The size of a machine or the availability of die width allows up to 20% additional capacity. Garant Machinery does not guarantee the actual force required to bend a specific part.

Instructions : Enter data in the blue field for material and punch & die configuration. This will give you the approximate tonnage required to complete a 90° bend.
