With the introduction of more sophisticated computer control mechanisms such as CNC (Cambridge Numerical Controls), it is now possible to fold metal into more complicated shapes using a twin-head folder

(a) simple bend c

(b) double bend

(c) crimped profile 1

(d) return end

(e) double reium end (I) complex profile

(e) double reium end (I) complex profile

S.I Methods of forming metal to shape.

where the previous limitation of providing space for access by the V-shaped bending tool can be avoided.
