This app calculates the correct bend allowance for sheet metal parts. Unique features include:
NO ADVERTISING - this app does not show any ads and therefore does not consume your data plan
GAUGE TABLE - includes a quick reference for standard gauges of steel, stainless steel, galvanized steel and aluminum in both inches and millimetres.
K-FACTOR CALCULATOR - automatically calculates the correct k-factor for the chosen thickness and bend radius. K-factor can also be entered manually.
Developed by a professional engineer with 13 years experience in the metal forming industry.
Version 1.3 introduces a new button for estimating the k-factor for steel based on the thickness and bend radius as well as a new button for changing gauge units from inches to millimeters and back.
