    hydraulic pressure needed to bend .060" stainless sheet

    Hello all, I need to make some dummy anodes for a de-plating apparatus. I would like to build a small hydraulic press brake that could handle a piece of .060 s.s. 24 " wide bent every 2" at a 45 degree angle. Does anyone have an idea of what kind of force is necessary to accomplish this? Is this even a reasonable thing to consider? Thanks, Jim

    Looks 16 tons. Google tonnage to brake stainless steel.

    If your bending on a 8x die, I'm guessing 8 tons at a 45* if your bending on a 16x die (1/8" die) then your around 2-3 ton max.

    You dont need much tonnage until after 45*
