Sheet metal products are
changing rapidly, increasing demands in terms of quality, and shorter product
life cycles. Batch sizes are decreasing considerably -- small quantities are in
demand. For companies that bend, this change means extra work, with the impact
felt most strongly during the set-up and dismantling of tools on their bending
