Determining Material Yield Strength is Key to Success with Bending Machinery

To create a vast array of metal covers and boxes, industrial and consumer components, office furniture, and the like, bending machinery is often used to shape metal sheets or plate into various shapes. Two things critical in this process are the capacities of the press brakes used, and the yield strengths of the materials going into them. Simply put, if the bending machinery is not capable of overcoming the materials yield strength, no permanent bend in the part will occur.
