We spent Thanksgiving touring around the beautiful state of Arizona. We saw many of the beautiful sights in Sedona and even went to visit the Grand Canyon. One of the highlights of the trip was our stop at Sloan Park, home of the Chicago Cubs Spring Training. We were anxious to see the field, but equally as excited about getting some pictures of the 50,000 pounds of steel we bent for some custom gates that sit above the stands at the park. The gates hold the overhead field lights. We bent various materials for this project including:
W6 X 15# A992. 80 pcs total. Bent the hard way to a 8’-9” radius.
C6 X 8.2# A36. 42 pcs total bent flanges in to a 10 ft radius.
WT8 X 18# A992. 4 pcs stem out and 6 pcs stem in bent to a 10 ft radius and to a 56 ft radius.
TS 3″ X 3″ X .188″ WALL A500 GR B. 30 pcs bent to a 4’-4” radius and 17 pcs bent to a 11’-6” radius.
4″ X 3″ X ¼” ANGLE A36. 20 pcs total. Some rolled leg in and others leg out. All pcs were bent to a 95 ft – 105 ft radius.
7″ X 4″ X 3/8″ ANGLE A36. 7 pcs rolled leg in and 1 pc rolled let out. All pcs were bent to a 10 ft – 90 ft radius.
MC6 X 18# A36. 4 pcs rolled the hard way to an 11 ft radius.
TS 6″ X 6″ X .250″ WALL A500 GR B. 3 pcs rolled to an 11 ft radius.
8″ X 8″ X ½” ANGLE A36. 3 pcs rolled let out to a 52 ft radius.
We bend all sizes of angle that the mill produces, up to 8” x 8” x 1¼”. We can bend all types of angle as well; including aluminum, stainless and carbon steel. Carbon angle (mill produced) is classified as ASTM A36 resulting in a yield point (PSI) of 36,000 minimum. We bend all stock lengths as well as non-stock lengths. Stock lengths range from 20 to 40 feet. Angle is produced with equal legs and unequal legs. Unequal legs would measure differently on the horizontal leg versus the vertical leg. We have the ability to bend angle with the leg in, leg out, heel in, heel out and heel up. We also have the ability to bend bulb flat. 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). Bent angle can be used for many different applications. The most common application would be angle flanges which are full circles that are used to join sections of pipe together. Bent angle is also used for canopies, roof trusses and tunnel shoring applications.

Last night was Taylor Swift’s opening night for her “Reputation Tour” at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona! Albina Co., Inc. bent 270,000 pounds of steel for the University of Phoenix Stadium. 31 lens x 20 ft: 1½” X 1½” X 3/16″ ANGLE A36 Rolled all leg out. Each part had 2 radii. 206 lengths of Tube Steel 10″ X 6″ X .375″ WALL A500 GR B. All material was bent to AESS (architecturally exposed structural steel)standards. There were multiple radii per piece as tight as a 4′ 7″ CLR. All parts were bent the Hard-way.
We were recently involved with some bending for the Digestive Health Institute of Montana, the largest gastrointestinal (GI) medical group in Montana. Approximately 30,000 pounds of bent steel was shipped to Great Falls, MT for fabrication. This project was unique due to the wide range of materials needing to be rolled.
We bent the following materials:
Tube Steel 12″ X 4″ X .250″ WALL A500 GR B
Tube Steel 12″ X 2″ X .250″ WALL A500 GR B
Tube Steel 3″ X 1½” X .120″ WALL A513
Tube Steel 3″ X 1″ X .120″ WALL A513
6″ X 3½” X 5/16″ ANGLE A36
5″ X 3″ X ¼” ANGLE A36
4″ X 4″ X 3/8″ ANGLE A36
3″ X 3″ X ¼” ANGLE A36
7″ X 4″ X 3/8″ ANGLE A36
We just finished a project for The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens in Palm Desert, California which consisted of over 60,000# of bent steel! This project consisted of AESS (Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel) material including both angle to rectangular tubing. The rectangular tubing ranged from 2” x 1” up to 16” x 8″! This is a great example of how well we can handle so many various sizes of material from the small to the big! We do it all! Another highlight of this project is that we were able to take the 10″ X 6″ X .375″ WALL A500 GR B Tube Steel to a 7 ft radius! A very difficult accomplishment.
We have all heard about drones and how they may play a role in our future. Like it or not, drone technology is getting better and better and the areas of the business sector where they can and will play a large roll in the growth and development of certain areas of business. Albina has just finished rolling 50,000# of steel for a new UNMANNED AIRCRAFT HANGAR. For this project we rolled 6” angle, square tubing 3″ x 3″ and 6″ x 6″, as well as wide flange ranging from W8# to W18#. Stay tuned for some installation pictures in the near future.
Albina Co., Inc. recently completed a curved steel project for a national amusement park on an expedited schedule that included 96,000 pounds of bent steel consisting of:
8″ X 8″ X ½” ANGLE A36
8″ X 6″ X ½” ANGLE A36
8″ X 4″ X ½” ANGLE A36
All angle was rolled leg in and leg out and rolled as tight as a 18 ft radius.
14″ OD X .375″ WALL A500 GR. B round pipe rolled down to a 20 ft radius and lengths ranged from 40 ft to 60 ft long.
We continue to provide bent steel for the St. Alphonsus Medical Group – Emerald Clinic in Idaho. We recently supplied another 20,000# of bent steel for the St. Alphonsus project.
This phase of the project included:
Tube Steel 8″ X 4″ X .375″ WALL A500 GR B
Tube Steel 16″ X 4″ X .375″ WALL A500 GR B
2″ X 2″ X 3/16″ ANGLE A36
Tube Steel 14″ X 4″ X .625″ WALL A500 GR B
Tube Steel 4″ X 2″ X .188″ WALL A500 GR B
Tube Steel 8″ X 2″ X .250″ WALL A500 GR B
All of these materials were bent on our state of the art roll bending equipment in a cold state. Everything was provided to AESS standards.
Do you require a fast lead-time for a RUSH high profile construction project? Well look no further than Albina Co., Inc. Albina has recently teamed up with a very loyal longtime customer to make the bends for the Seaworld Ocean Explorer project in San Diego, CA. Albina received authorization to proceed on 1/25/17 and 7 working days later we were shipping the first 48,000# truckload of bent steel! Our customer thought they were asking for a miracle and Albina was happy to provide exactly what was required.
Albina processed 40 ft, 50 ft and 60 ft lengths of bent steel angle:
14″ OD X .375″ WALL A500 GR. B
8″ X 4″ X ½” ANGLE A36
8″ X 6″ X ½” ANGLE A36
8″ X 8″ X ½” ANGLE A36
All of the angle were bent to various radii, some of the lengths were bent leg-in and others leg-out. The Seaworld Ocean Explorer project will feature a mini-sub interactive ride called Submarine Quest and three new family-inspired rides inspired by the sea. Pictures will be posted upon completion of the project.
Albina has successfully completed bending various HSS and angle for the Fort Bliss Hospital in Texas. We induction bent and roll bent with internal support, materials to meet AESS standards. TS 16″ X 4″ X .500″ WALL A500 GR B was induction bent to a spiral configuration down to a 29 ft plan view radius for the stringers. We also roll bent (with internal support) the same material, the easy way, down to a 29 ft radius for landing materials. Other materials required for this project included TS 10″ X 4″ X .375″ WALL A500 GR B and 3″ X 3″ X 3/8″ ANGLE A36. Just another project that proves distance is NOT a deterrent.
