Sheet Metal Bender


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.

So far it is great I tested it against my excel calculator that I created 10 years ago and it worked perfect. I wasn't sure if it could handle acute bends but I took a chance and bought it. It handles acute bends perfect. I have worked in sheet metal forming for over 35 years.

This is a bargain! very useful app. pays for itself many times over by making parts fit first time
