Practical Tolerances for Short Run Metal Stampings

Practical tolerances for our Short Run Metal Stampings vary according to the design of the part. Generally, all dimensional tolerances compared to costs can be illustrated by the following diagram “A”. Reading from right to left, we illustrate that within the more generous limitations, the cost increases slowly—but, as the permissible variance is reduced, the Practical Tolerances for Short Run Metal Stampings

Dimensioning Practices for Press Brake

Practical experience has proven that dimensioning and measuring practices must both be understood and agreed on by all parties to achieve a workable, mutual standard. Formed sheet metal parts present a unique problem in that angular tolerances as well as the flatness conditions interact with single plane dimensions because of the flexibility of sheet metal, Dimensioning Practices for Press Brake

How to Calculate Tonnage [FREE FORMULA]

The Tonnage Formula is the pressure required in tons to cut a blank or contour using a flat faced punch with no shear. Tonnages can be calculated for forming, bending, cutting, drawing, and blanking operations. Having the ability to calculate the tonnages for a sheet metal project is vital for the completion and success of How to Calculate Tonnage [FREE FORMULA]

The Minimum Bend Radius for Aluminum

When working with aluminum over sheet metal, several variables need to be considered. Aluminum is typically thicker and stronger, and requires more force to bend as well as consideration of edge conditions and punch nose radii.  This free chart outlines what bend radii is required for the approximate thickness of aluminum. We recommend printing it out to keep as The Minimum Bend Radius for Aluminum
