### Calculate K Factor, Bend Allowance And Y Factor For Sheet

Calculate K factor, bend allowance and Y factor for sheet metal bending. The K factor is the most important and elusive variable of bending, because it varies both as a function of the material and according to parameters such as angle and tooling.

K factor is an empirical constant, meaning that its value was determined by testing. It varies according to material, its thickness, bend radius and bending method. Basically, the k factor offsets the neutral line to provide a flat pattern that reflects reality. By using it, you get the bend allowance which is, in essence, the length of the
