Bending or folding: what does it involve?
Bending (also called folding) involves the reshaping of metal by bending it. This processing technique follows the cutting of sheet metal. Bending permanently changes the shape of the material in question. This happens as follows: an upper punch (blade) is pressed against a lower die with a lot of force. This creates a product with a bend angle and a bend radius. Both will depend on the sheet thickness of the product and also the blade and v-groove combination used.
Markets for which we bend sheet metal include:
The advantages of bending metal
- No welding is necessary
- High precision
- Sustainable for complex products too
- The sheet metal is strengthened
- Neat finish (no post-processing necessary)

Bending at Dumaco in practice
Bending or folding of metal
Folding is a type of bending. This processing technique is mainly used for projects that require a high level of precision and in which design plays an important role. For example, Dumaco supplies folded products for display building, shop interiors and sanitary applications. For example, products like housing, dustbins and baking trays.
Automated folding at Dumaco
The reshaping of sheet metal requires great precision. Dumaco has the very latest production technology for this purpose: a Codatto folding machine. This machine is unique in the Netherlands and has many advantages over traditional bending. Would you like to know more about the options we are able to offer?
