Y- and K-factors are part constants defined by the location of the sheet metal material's

neutral bend line with respect to the thickness. The neutral bend line position is based on

a numeric reference for the type of sheet metal material used in your design. The

numeric references range from 0 to 1. If you are referring to the Y- and K-factors, the

numeric references can be negative, with the lower numbers representing softer

material. Both the Y- and K-factors are integral elements in calculating the developed

length (the length of flat sheet metal required to make a bend of a specific radius and

angle) in your design. However, the length of the neutral line is equal to the developed

length.

The K-factor is a ratio between the distance from the neutral bend line to the inside bend

radius and the material thickness. The K-factor uses the formula k-factor = /T.

Use the K-factor to determine the Y-factor.

The Y-factor is a ratio between the neutral bend line and material thickness. The Y-factor

uses the formula Y-factor = K-factor * (/2). The default value for the Y-factor is 0.50.

Developed Length of Material and the Y- and K-Factors

1. Bend condition

2. Flat Condition

Where:

= Distance between the inside radius of the bend and the neutral bend line

T = Sheet metal thickness

L = Developed length between the squares

R = Inside Bend radius

N = Neutral bend line

K-factor = /T

You can change the Part Y-factor using any of the following:

Set Up commandInitialize the Y-factor using the set up command. The new Yfactor value takes effect for any new parts or features created after the value is set.

The default Y-factor value that is, 0.5 is used by all features in a part except for

features that use user-defined Y- and K-factors.

parameter in the Material Definition dialog box or Edit > Setup > Bend Allow >

Y-factor. The default PTC_INITIAL_BEND_Y_FACTOR value in the material table is 0.5.

The Y-factor is updated if you change the value in the material file assigned to the

part. If you unassign a material file, the part is frozen with the Y-factor, K-factor, and

bend table values that were assigned to the previous material file.

Configuration optionInitialize the Y-factor for new sheet metal parts using the

PTC_INITIAL_BEND_Y_FACTORconfiguration option. After you reload the configuration

file, all new sheet metal parts use the new value. The configuration option does not

change the default value for the existing part's Y-factor.

You can apply a feature-specific Y-factor to the geometry of the feature. You can select

K- and Y-factors for non-arc segments and bend tables for arc segments. A flange profile

can be an arc or any non-arc segment, or a combination of both.

Note: For stretched bends is negative. As a result, the neutral layer stays out of the

sheet metal thickness causing the Y- and K-factors to be negative.

Negative Y-factor

Where:

= Distance between the neutral

bend line and the inside bend radius

T = Sheet metal thickness

L = Developed length between the

squares

R = Bend radius

N = Neutral bend line
