Albina Co. is an industry leader in bending bulb flat material. Bulb flat is similar to angle with one of the legs cut down to a very short "stub". We can bend bulb flat with the stem out and the stem in. We can bend all mill sizes produced up to 430 mm x 20 mm (16.93" wide x .787" thick). We bend all stock lengths as well as non-stock lengths.
Albina has been a supplier of bent bulb flat material for ship, barge and bridge building applications for the past 4 decades. Blub flat material is used in ship and barge building to reinforce steel plate (act as a stiffener). If you are unfamiliar with bulb flat material, it is a hot rolled product with a unique shape. It is flat, with a short tapered flange on one side. It looks like flat bar with one end having a tapered “stem" sticking out.
We got the first shipment of the curved tubes. We pulled 3 at random; they dropped into the fixture or were very close (so close as to be a non-issue) and were perfectly flat. Also, none of the ones I saw on the top of the pile appeared to be scratched up requiring us to spend extensive amounts of time grinding them to meet our customer's cosmetic needs. My supervisor was actually giddy. He said they were going to be a joy to work with. You made his day (and therefore mine).
Curved steel members don't just "come that way" from the mill. Curved steel members are produced from straight lengths of material and are bent per your specifications.
Albina Co., Inc. produces the highest quality curved steel products in the steel industry and provides the most reliable and professional customer service experience.
