I have a flat plate that we need to add a crease along it's length on the centre (plate is 400mm wide).
This is done on the press and is used to minimise weld distortion.
We have a chart that tells us how much crease is required depending on plate thickness and weld size.
For this part we need to press 2.5mm into it. I haven't had to do this for a couple of years now and have completely forgot how I used to do it.
Can some one give me a method of doing this? Below is a screen shot of how it's supposed to end up.
