“Hemming” in Metal Fabrication

Nov 18, 2021

Hemming is a method used in metal fabrication during forming. In the two-step process, the edge of the material is folded over and then flattened onto itself. Hems can be used for a number of reasons. Typically used to improve the appearance of a part, reinforce an edge, or to eliminate the sharp edge of the material. Common applications include parts with a hand-hold, items that are located in high traffic areas, or locations where vulnerable objects (wiring, hoses, tubes, etc.) may rub up against the edge of the material and become damaged.
