MetaBEND, 3D Bend Simulation and Programming






MetaBEND is a powerful offline software based on the MetaCAM technology developed by Metamation, Inc®.It is able to generate data directly for various models of Cybelec numerical controls, as listed below. MetaBEND offers a number of other powerful features, such as an auto tooler, which will select the appropriate tooling to be used according to the machine type and 3D model, thus generating a collision free bending sequence. A fully animated bend simulator with collision checks allows the operator to inspect and correct in detail the detected collisions, thanks to the graphic interface. Graphic tool layouts allow modifications to be made with ease to tooling, and bend reports provide 3D views of each bend. The back gauges can also be viewed in the 3D visualrepresentation window; changes to their positions can therefore easily be made.


For ModEva RA

MetaBEND can generate 3D native data in the form of:

  • The geometry of a part,
  • The geometry of the part + bending solution.

ForModEva series, DNC 15 and DNC 880S ranges(*)

MetaBEND can generate .DAT files in the form of:

  • The bending solution without the geometry of the part,
  • Image (.JPEG) for each bending sequence.

*The data can also be used for other numerical controls like the DNC 60, DNC 600S etc


  • Auto tooler,
  • Fully animated bend simulator.
  • Graphic tool layouts.
  • Full 3D visual representation window.
