BEND DEDUCTION:Bend Deduction is the difference from the start of the radius to the apex of the angle times two minus the bend allowance. To state it simply:Bend deduction = D + D - bend allowance D = tan(A°÷ 2) x (MT + BR)Note! The formulas can be entered in the calculator (optionally purchased) exactly how they are written down. Remember mathematical hierarchy?
Bend deduction 90 deg. angle = 2(MT + BR) - Bend allowanceBend deduction = 2 x (tan(A°÷ 2) x (MT + BR)) - Bend allowance
SETBACK: Distance equal to half of a bend deduction which places a brake punch die right on the center of a bend
