Wipe Bending Calculator
Calculate the required force to bend a piece of sheet metal using the wipe bending method.
In this process, the sheet is held between a wipe die and clamp pad, while a punch presses against the edge of the sheet.
The calculated tonnage can be used for the selection of a machine, such as a press brake, to perform the bending operation.
The factor of safety is in most cases will be 1.
We also have Air Bending Force, Bend Allowance, Deep Drawing Force, Spring-back and Wipe Bending Force Calculators.
Enter your Sheet thickness, Length, Die radius and Punch Radius then select your material type and finally enter a safety factor, units can be selected as required.
