On-Demand Metal Bending Services

OSH Cut offers on-demand metal bending services in steel, stainless, aluminum, and copper, in thicknesses up to 1/4".

Upload your flat pattern with bend lines, or your 3D sheet metal model, to get instant pricing and manufacturability feedback.

Sheet Metal Bending

Precision Bending

With precision back-gauge positioning to within +/- 0.0001", real-time material thickness measurement and compensation, and high precision ram placement, our equipment can produce parts with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability.

Our standard bend angle tolerances are +/- 1.0 degree.

Clear Communication, Instant Feedback

Designing parts for precision bending can be complicated. In a bending process, radius, k-factor, and part geometry are limited by your shop's tooling and material. Finalizing a design often requires a lengthy back-and-forth with the shop, increasing costs and lead-times.

OSH Cut approaches bending differently. We publish all of our bending parameters (like k-factor and bend radius) in our material catalog so that you can get started with the right settings immediately. After you upload your design, our system automatically analyzes your parts and runs a bend simulation to detect possible manufacturability issues, like tooling collisions.

3D Model Support

Our automated quoting engine supports your native 3D models, accepting common file formats including STEP, SLDPRT, CATPART, IPT, PAR, and IGES.

Simply upload a valid sheet metal design and our system will automatically unfold your model to create a flat pattern, adapt your bend radii to match our tooling without changing your part size, and analyze your part for manufacturability.

2D Flat Patterns

Don't have a 3D model? No problem! We can take your 2D flat pattern in DXF format and show you a 3D model of your finished part. Your flat pattern just needs to contain punch lines to indicate where you'd like us to place the punch during bending.

When using a predefined flat pattern, the finished size of your part will depend on how the original part was unfolded to create the flat. Bend radius, k-factor, and material thickness of the original model will matter. Be sure to check out the finished part size of your 3D part, reported by our system, to make sure it matches your expectation.
