Design For Manufacturability – Sheet Metal Guidelines Bends For the ease of manufacturing, multiple bends on the same plane should occur in the same direction. Avoid large sheet metal parts with small bent flanges. In low carbon steel sheet metal, the minimum radius of a bend should be one-half the material thickness or 0.80 mm
Sheet metal thickness is denoted by gauge, sometimes spelled gage, which indicates a standard thickness before processing. Click here for a Gauge to mm Conversion Chart. Processing may include polishing, or the applying of protective plastics which will decrease or increase a sheet’s thickness respectively.
