How to bending aluminum without cracking it?

Aluminum breaking after bending can be a significant issue in various applications: The aluminum sheet or aluminum extrusion is easy to break after bending, or it will crack after anodizing bending. Many aluminum alloy processing companies are confused about this. Understanding the main reasons for this problem and implementing preventive measures is essential for achieving successful aluminum bending without failures. So, how to bend aluminum without breaking it? 9 main reasons and 6 tips for preventive measures for aluminum to break after bending.

Bending Characteristics of Steel and Aluminum Tubes

This article describes the key considerations for bending metal pipes: including wall thickness and bending radius; and material properties (yield strength, elongation, etc.) that affect the bending process of metal pipes will affect the bending process. Material selection for steel and aluminum tube bending. A metal pipe bend radius calculator is also provided.

Minimum Bending Radius When Bending Bars

There is no mathematical formula to determine the minimum bending radius of steel sections.

To explain this better, let’s look at steel bending. The steel is bent using a cold rolling bending process.
