Air bending is characterized as a metal forming operation in which a metal part is formed without the punch and die closing completely on the part. Likewise, the term is used to describe a method of bending where the material is expected to take its shape from the amount of depth penetration of the punch. (see related term below - bending under load, bend angle)
Bending under load is described as the capability to adjust the ram depth/bend angle while the machine is exerting pressure.
Bend angle denotes the angle between two successive flanges of the bent part.
