Bend To Mold Line Distance Calculation

Bend To Mold Sheet Metal Line Distance Calculator determines the bend line to mold allowance when forming sheet metal.





Most sheet metal materials will conform to the calculations.

Bend radius

Bend radius is measured to the inside curvature, the bend radius is the minimum radius one can bend a pipe, tube, sheet, cable or hose without kinking it, damaging it, or shortening its life.

Smaller bend radius means greater is the material flexibility, when the radius of curvature decreases, the curvature increases.
