I have been having this problem for about a year but i have justbeen living with it till now, so i figured i would look into it. Iwill design a normal sketch then turn it into a sheet metal part igive it a bend radio, length, and thickness. I then get the partburnt out and when they go to bend it the part always ends up beingabout 1/4" off and I really have no idea why, or if it is mydrawing or something on the break press. I don't know what the Kfactor is or if it will effect it. We bend 16gage, 1/8",3/16", 1/8", 1/4", 5/16" and 3/8" and havethe same problem with them all. If anyone can leave some advise orsomething to try that would be great.
