Steel Plate bend

Steel Plate bend

Steel Plate bend


If for example, a steel plate of 1.5mm is bent 30 degrees with an internal radius of 2mm, when we flatten it again, it's lenght will increase, how much? How to calculate this?



RE: Steel Plate bend

Normally rule of thumb is about 1/5 of thickness for 90 deg. In your case 0.3mm. nut since you bed less, you can cut this in half. How about you try o a scrap piece of metal? That would be the best method

there are some formulas on the net you can find that mimics elongatioin very well. I'll try to locate those I used in the past.

How about you try o a scrap piece of metal? That would be the best method by far
