For the current bending industry needs to achieve bending different thickness, different specifications and double-sided bending production, an automatic adjustable double-sided bending method is proposed. The main steps of this method are as follows: First, the structure model is established according to the bending process requirements; Then, the PLC control system and the robot system are developed; Finally, the digital bending programming of the man-machine interface is carried out. It is proved by practices that the double-sided bending mechanism, control system and robot system are applied to the bending system which improves the bending forming quality, forming precision and processing efficiency. It promotes the rapid development of bending industry and the application prospect is very broad.
