A bending process is considered as one of fundamental sheet metal forming processes, and it is widely used for fabrication of simple or complicated sheet metal products in industrial fields. Most of automobiles and electronics have many parts made by the bending process inside or outside of them. However, till now, there is few research reports on the bending process of hemmed plates. A hemmed plate has a locally different bending strength, so a waving shape occurs after bending. A poor outlook due to local uneven shape influences greatly on product competitiveness. To settle this problem, we studied the bending parameters of a hemmed plate and showed the major sensitive design-parameters on the bending quality.
