Applications Engineering Assistance

To receive applications engineering assistance, please e-mail your part drawing file or your bending application question to request@wilausa.com. Please see the link below for the required part drawing format and information needed in order to do a proper engineering review. We really prefer the part drawing in an electronic format, DXF or Solidworks, so that the part file does not have to be redrawn. Please also be sure the file includes complete material type and thickness information and the file includes bend lines. Also, please specify tooling style needed and details on the press brake the part(s) will be formed on.


If all needed information is provided, our goal is to respond to your application review request within the following time frame:
1 – 2 part drawings or bending question: within 24 hours
3 – 5 part drawings: within 48 hours
6 – 10 part drawings: within 72 hours
