Sheet metal fabrication bending is a process in which sheet metal is formed into a desired shape by applying force to it, causing it to deform along a bend line. Bending is one of the primary methods used in sheet metal fabrication to create various components and structures.

Here are the key steps involved in sheet metal bending:

1. Material Selection: Choose the appropriate type and thickness of sheet metal based on the requirements of the final product. Common materials used for sheet metal bending include steel, aluminum, stainless steel, and copper.

2. Design and Layout: Create a detailed design and layout of the part or component that needs to be bent. Consider factors such as bend angles, bend radius, and tolerances during the design process.

3. Tooling Selection: Select the appropriate bending tooling based on the material, thickness, and complexity of the bend required. Common bending tools include press brakes, folding machines, and rollers.

4. Set Up the Bending Machine: Set up the bending machine according to the specifications of the sheet metal and the desired bend angle. This involves adjusting the tooling, back gauge, and other machine settings.

5. Marking and Alignment: Mark the bend lines accurately on the sheet metal using tools like rulers, squares, or templates. Ensure proper alignment of the sheet metal with the bending machine to achieve precise bends.

6. Bending Process: Place the sheet metal between the bending tooling and apply force to create the bend. The force is typically applied hydraulically or mechanically, depending on the type of bending machine used.

7. Multiple Bends and Sequencing: If the part requires multiple bends, plan the bending sequence carefully to avoid interference and distortion. Bend one section at a time, considering the material's elasticity and spring-back effect.

8. Inspection and Quality Control: After each bend, inspect the part for accuracy, dimensions, and any defects. Make necessary adjustments if required to achieve the desired outcome. Ensure that the final product meets the specified tolerances and quality standards.

Sheet metal bending can be a complex process that requires expertise and experience to achieve precise results. It is often performed by skilled operators or specialized sheet metal fabrication shops equipped with bending machinery and tools.
