There are seven typical methods of bending in the industry: induction bending, rotary-draw/compression bending, roll bending, plate rolling, point bending / gag pressing, synchronized incremental bending, and hot bending (using induction or other heating sources). Some bending methods can be used in conjunction with one another. For example you can hot bend material utilizing an incremental bending process. Each method has its advantages. Some methods are more commonly used in the steel construction industry, while others are more common in the automobile or manufacturing industries. The seven most widely used bending processes in the industry are listed below in greater detail.
