Sheet Metal Panel Bending Design Consideration

Technical Specifications and Design Considerations for Salvagnini P4 sheet metal panel bending at Dalsin:

  • Complex profiles without hard tooling
  • Design Flexibility over conventional sheet metal forming
  • Consolidation of part count
  • Processing of pre-painted & PVC coated metals
  • Precision metal forming with significant cost reduction opportunities and improved repeatability
  • CNC controlled forming with off-line programming
  • Repeatability to +/- 0.004"
  • Material handling capability to process highly cosmetic, pre-finished, and masked materials
  • Forms up to 0.112" thick steel (12 gauge)
  • Forms up to 0.075” thick stainless steel (14 gauge)
  • Forms up to 0.120” thick aluminum
  • Minimum sheet thickness 0.018” (26 gauge)
  • Maximum sheet flat dimensions 98” x 59”
  • Maximum sheet flat diagonal dimension 106”
  • Maximum enclosure at 6” depth
  • Formed radius = 0.015" and larger
  • First part programming and setup time is a fraction of press brake first part programming and setup
  • Ability to form non-rectangular polygon panel faces
  • Shortened manufacturing cycle time by 30% or more

Design Flexibility for Corner Conditions

  • Elimination of corner welds
  • Eliminate welding operation
  • Eliminate finishing
  • Eliminate variation in appearance

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)
