Bent Metal Parts: Instant Quotes, Parts in Days

Xometry's metal bending service provides instant quotes for simple and complex bending jobs. You can get an instant quote from a 3D CAD file or DXF file in our Instant Quoting Engine. We use electric and hydraulic press brakes to bend parts to your specifications, including tight tolerance parts. A range of post-processing options are available so you can get parts that are ready to use.

Our broad network of suppliers and expert engineering team can work on anything from small prototyping jobs to large-scale production manufacturing for thick metal plates.

Xometry also offers a waterjet cutting service, a laser cutting service and a plasma cutting service to cover all of your sheet metal fabrication needs.

Available Finishes
Standard

Minimal post-processing or treatment on parts is done.

Bead Blast

The part surface is left with a smooth, matte appearance.

Anodized (Type II Or Type III)

Type II creates a corrosion-resistant finish. Parts can be anodized in different colors—clear, black, red, and gold are most common—and is usually associated with aluminum. Type III is thicker and creates a wear-resistant layer in addition to the corrosion resistance seen with Type II.

Powder Coat

This is a process where powdered paint is sprayed onto a part which is then baked in an oven. This creates a strong, wear- and corrosion-resistant layer that is more durable than standard painting methods. A wide variety of colors are available to create the desired aesthetic.

Chem Film (Chromate Conversion Coating)

Provides corrosion resistance and good conductivity properties. Can be used as a base for paint. Can leave surface yellow/gold.

Advantages of Metal Bending With Xometry
Beautiful Parts

The lack of visible weldments makes for a smooth, clean finish.

Accuracy

Using bent parts instead of welded parts makes parts more accurate due to the elimination of human error.

Fewer Pieces

You can get the same outcome with fewer pieces vs. an approach that relies on welding parts together.

Metal Bending General Tolerances

DescriptionGeneral Tolerance
Description

Distance Dimensions

General Tolerance

For features of size (Length, width, diameter) and location (position, concentricity, symmetry) +/- 0.030” is typical. Material length and thickness may affect tolerances.

Description

Thickness Dimension

General Tolerance

Thickness tolerances are determined by the material blank.

Description

Minimum Recommend Part Size

General Tolerance

3.000"

Description

Minimum Feature Size

General Tolerance

2X material thickness with a minimum of 0.125"

Description

Kerf (slit size)

General Tolerance

Approximately 0.062"

Description

Edge Condition

General Tolerance

Waterjet parts will have a vertical striation on the edges and may show a slight taper.

Please check out Xometry's Manufacturing Standards for more information on tolerances per process. Unless we have agreed to other tolerances in your Quote, we will work to achieve and hold the tolerances noted.
