Accademia della Piegatura presents Puncheck


Emiliano Corrieri of Accademia della Piegatura has devised a system as simple as it is effective to evaluate at a glance the feasibility of bent profiles. It is Puncheck, a millimetre grid very similar to the one used in tool catalogues.

The use is immediate: just place a punch with the tip on the bottom corner to see if a certain bend is feasible with that tool. This is the same technique that has always been used in fabrication to analyse the bending sequence; the advantage is that instead of bulky catalogues a simple sheet of paper is enough.
