Design Flexibility for Corner Conditions

  • Bend Relief not required providing cleaner panel face appearance.
  • Tight corners minimize corner gaps (seal with powder coating and paint).
  • Alternate methods for locking corners
    • Lance-form clip
    • Rivet
    • Interlocking features


Consolidation of part count offers many advantages of sheet metal bending:

  • Fewer equipment setups
  • Fewer processing operations
  • Fewer fasteners, fewer welds
  • Elimination of fixture requirements through self-fixturing design
  • Fewer seams for paint chemical leeching
  • Increase in part consistency / quality
  • Reduction in overall assembly weight
  • Fewer parts to handle, order and inventory
  • Reduced assembly time
  • Fewer engineering drawings to maintain
  • Increased Panel Rigidity With Edge  Box Structure (see picture below)
