We have some press brake tooling with this rating on the tooling;
What does that mean in either PSI or force in pounds per foot?
It implies a force per length. KN is kilonewtons (a measure of force in SI
units (metric)) and m is meters (a measure of length in SI units). 700KN/m
converts to 47,965.37 lbs/ft.
