Bent Metal Parts: Instant Quotes, Parts in Days
Xometry’s sheet metal folding service provides instant quotes for simple and complex bending jobs. You can get an instant quote from a 3D CAD 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 is available so you can get parts that are ready to use.
Our broad network of metal bending shops and expert engineering team can work on anything from small prototyping jobs to large-scale production manufacturing for thick metal plates.
Metal Bending Materials
Stainless Steel 301
Copper 260 (Brass)
Stainless Steel 304
Stainless Steel 316/316L
Steel, Low Carbon
Additional materials are available upon request!
Minimal post-processing or treatment on parts is done.
The part surface is left with a smooth, matte appearance.
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.
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.
Provides corrosion resistance and good conductivity properties. Can be used as a base for paint. Can leave surface yellow/gold.

The lack of visible weldments makes for a smooth, clean finish.
Bending metal instead of welded parts makes parts more accurate due to the elimination of human error.
You can get the same outcome with fewer pieces vs. an approach that relies on welding parts together.
Metal Bending General Tolerances
10’ x 20’ (3.05 m x 6.10 m). We accommodate larger part volumes upon request.
Standard Lead Time
Starts at 3 business days
0.024” - 0.250” typical. We accommodate thicker or thinner gauges upon request.
For single planes or flat parts, +/- 0.010” on edge to edge, edge to hole, and hole to hole features; +/- 0.010” on bend to edge/hole features. For multi-planed bent parts, +/- 0.030” for hole to hole/edge, edge to edge, and over-formed parts; +/- 1 degree for bend angles.
