Linking bend table with material or vice-versa

Hey, I was wondering if it was possible to link a bend table with the material. The reason being is we use different type of steel that vary in strength. Depending on the type of steel, different radiuses are used on different thicknesses.

 

Sometimes, somebody forgets to switch the bend table after switching material so the radius is not the right one.

Other times, somebody does a quick revision of a drawing, switches the material and the bend table but goes too fast at switching the bend table and doesn't notice the thickness has gone back to the default first value of the bend table. The result is the part is produced with the wrong thickness.

 

Would there be a way to link your bend table to your material or vice-versa? I'd guess it's possible via a macro.
