Metal goods factories
In metal goods factories, smaller horizontal bending machines and radial bending machines are used for the most part.
Forming tools are often used on the manual horizontal bending machine to form the bent part with one stroke. Depending on the shape, the Stierli bending machine can be used to produce up to 600 bends an hour, which makes the machine a very efficient and cost-effective piece of production equipment.
With a CNC-controlled horizontal bending machine and an automatic length stop, bending programs can be created that make bending of series parts with multiple bends extremely economical.
