form tools with "sharp" bends

I would like to be able to create form tools with inside bend radii smaller than the material thickness.  Many if not all of the required tools for parts we manufacture require this or something close to zero.  If it were just a visual representation they could be "fudged" until they work. My problem is we make these tools and use them.  It's possible to have a 0 radius bend on and edge flange, why not a form tool?!  Attached is my latest problem.  Any thoughts? Suggestions?

 

Thanks
