Flexible Draw Bending of Profiles
The technology of draw bending represents an alternative to produce flexible load-adapted sheet metal profiles. In addition to the adaptability of profile configuration low machine costs and an uncomplicated system control make this a very flexible production method. Hence it is particularly suitable for the production of profiles in small batch series or the fabrication of prototypes.
