CNC bending is a process where sheet metal is bent to an angle using, typically a V shaped punch and die. The sheet is placed between the punch and die which presses down on the sheet. This method of bending provides a low cost method to product 3D shapes from 2D sheets. 

CNC bending is a suitable for processing most ductile metals and primarily for sheet metal designs with one or more bends. Just a few examples of are brackets, enclosures, cams, chassis, etc. There is generally no special tooling required, with the exception of intricate designs and special bends.
