I am researching purchasing a precision press brake, like a Trumpf 3066 or Amada HDS. We bend 14 gauge - 20 gauge stainless steel, and the thickness of the material varies by about 0.003". How does this variation in thickness affect bend angle? For example, does 0.002" thicker material result in 2 degrees underbending?
