cincinnati load calcClick image to enlargeCincinnati Inc. has released a load calculator app that helps users figure out the press brake tonnage required to air bend a certain piece of metal.

The app, named CI Load Calc, is available for iOS and Android, and is compatible with all makes and models of press brakes and press brake tooling.

In metal fabrication, operators often calculate the air bend tonnage needed to form a part on a press brake.

Press brake operators select a material, thickness, bend length, then enter the vee die opening. The app automatically gives the inside bend radius and the minimum flange.

After entering the four parameters, users have their formability factor and required tonnage, either in metric or imperial.

The app saves previous entries and users can access that history at any time.

The free app is available now, both in the App Store and Google Play.
