Press Bending Rod

  Sketch

Application: MCP Corp. bends and forms rod up to 1.0" in diameter. MCP Corp. specializes in press and rotary bending in an endless range of styles and configurations.

Bend Radius: bend radii options are increased with press bending. Sharp radii as small as .06 can be formed in, say, 3/8" diameter rods. However, sharp radii should be avoided in applications where material integrity can not be compromised. Avoid having bend radii intersect with any flat transition areas; ensure that the radius is at least four material diameters from the flat area unless the flat itself is bent. Given the nature of the bending process, dimension bend radii as "reference" dimensions. When that is not possible, tolerance bend radii > 1/2" as ± 25%, and ² 1/2" as ± .125".

Finish: plain, painted or plated are available. If plating is specified, standard MCP plating is zinc with a yellow dichromate treatment.

Dimensioning: drawings should be based on centerline dimensions.

 

  End Straight Length: same as CNC bending.

Straight Length Between Bends: same as CNC bending.
