This paper presents a complete model including method and result for tolerance
verification of bent sheet metal parts. The method uses a mathematical model to take into account
aspects influencing the dimensional accuracy of linear and angular dimensions of bent parts. The
model was implemented using a set of experimental data to estimate the dimensional accuracy for
dimensions of interest of a specific part. Comparing the prediction data with the measured results
allowed validation of the model.
