Buyer has been working on a new tube fender for a vehicle. The design incorporates rectangular steel tubing and sheet metal. The preliminary design calls for tubing 1.5" x 4" .120 wall steel. The steel sheet is 11 guage steel and will be CNC cut and brake formed. The tubing is to be CNC cut and notched for hand bending later. All parts will later be hand bent, assembled and jig welded by Buyer. The design is being fined tuned, and some small changes are still being made. Buyer would like to work with a company who has time to help with some small design details. Buyer is not sure what type of steel to go with and has even considered aluminum. This is not really a structural part and would like to keep weight to a minimum, while maintaining offroad integrity. Buyer can modify or supply as many 2D CAD drawings as needed.

Bending: Bending is a flexible process that allows many different shapes to be produced. Standard die sets are used to produce a wide variety of shapes. The material is placed on the die, and positioned in place with stops and/or gages. It is held in place with hold-downs. The upper part of the press, the ram with the appropriately shaped punch descends and forms the v-shaped bend. Forming is similar to bending. Complex parts such as U-sections, channel sections of different profiles can be produced by doing multiple bends. Roll forming is a continuous metal forming process that takes sheet, strip, or coiled stock and bends or forms it into shapes of essentially identical cross section by feeding the metal between successive pairs of rolls that increasingly shape it until the desired cross section is completed adding both strength and rigidity to lightweight materials.
