A counterbend occurs when we bend a very large, heavy and thin plate. The overhang generates a torque that makes the sheet bend around the die edge under its own weight, as we can see in the drawing. The sheet lifter helps to avoid this type of damage, supporting the plate during the entire bending cycle.
