To measure springback ratio of thin sheet or plate, winding bend rig is made. It bends a specimen with keeping its curva-ture constant and measure the bending angles before and after release of bending load. To check the performance of the bend rig, we calculated the bending moment by two ways which are based on simple beam theory. One is that the bending moment is calculated by using the results of bending test, and the other is that the moment is calculated by using the results of tensile tests. The former may entails the effect of the other is that the moment is calculated by using the results of tensile tests. The former may entails the effect of the friction between bending pin of the rig and surface of specimen, but the latter does not contain any effects of the friction since the bending moment is obtained by using tensile tests. Never-theless, the values of the two bending moments shows the same level of bending moment, which implies that the friction does not influence on the presence of friction within the scope of the test performed in this experiment. This phenomenon is explained theoretically by using moment equilibrium.
