WE GOT YOU A GIFT THIS YEAR! A NEW DAVI MAV K30 PLATE ROLL MACHINE: OPERATIONAL BY THE FIRST OF THE NEW YEAR!

The color of the season around here is Red! Usually you wouldn’t want to have the color red associated with a small business (ha!), but the signature red color we are seeing a lot of this season is our new DAVI MAV Variable Geometry K30 2-1/2” x 10 ft plate roll! The machine arrived in our shop a few weeks ago and will be up an operational by 12/31! This is our gift to you as this machine will drastically increase our capacity for plate rolling and we are excited about the opportunity to bid your plate rolling needs!
The overall capacity for standard A36 plate is 10 ft x 2½”. For higher yield material (example 60 ksi) the machine can pre-bend and roll the following examples:

  1. 10 ft x 1 5/8″ thick to a 61″ outside diameter.
  2. 9 ft x 1 3/4″ thick to a 96″ outside diameter.
  3. 10 ft x 3/4″ thick to a 30″ inside diameter.

With 2019 wrapping up, we also wrap up our 80th year in business. What an amazing accomplishment. Most businesses are not fortunate enough to see this type of longevity. 2019 has been a strong year for Albina where we have seen our national “footprint” expand into states where we were not previously providing bent materials. I think it is safe to say that Albina has a presence in almost every state in the US, which is a tremendous accomplishment for a company that started as a small, local shop. We would not be where we are at as a company without the efforts and dedication of the Albina team who strive to exceed your expectations in quality workmanship, on-time delivery, customer service, communication, equipment and procedures. We are so very fortunate for the amazing customers and vendors we work with as well. You make coming to work every day a pleasure. We are looking forward to 2020 and all the new opportunities and unique jobs we hope to work on together!

We had the pleasure of attending FABTECH this week and purchased a new MAV Variable Geometry K30 2-1/2” x 10 ft plate roll! The machine is due to arrive in our shop next week and we will have it up and rolling soon!

The overall capacity for standard A36 plate is 10 ft x 2½”. For higher yield material (example 60 ksi) the machine can pre-bend and roll the following examples:

  1. 10 ft x 1 5/8″ thick to a 61″ outside diameter.
  2. 9 ft x 1 3/4″ thick to a 96″ outside diameter.
  3. 10 ft x 3/4″ thick to a 30″ inside diameter.

This machine will drastically increase our capacity for plate rolling and we are excited about the opportunity to bid your plate rolling needs!

Our Plate Roll is Definitely Rolling Right Now!

Albina’s plate roll has been extremely busy as of late and we recently rolled 1/2″ X 96″ A36 and 3/8″ X 96″ A36 plate to a 55 foot radius for a large tank.  Very cool pictures below! Did you know that our plate rolling capacity is determined by a number of factors. The thickness we can roll is tied directly to the width of the plate we are bending. For example our plate roll can bend up to 10 foot wide material, but can only bend ¾” thick plate at 10 foot wide. As the plate becomes smaller in width we can bend thicker material. For example if a piece of plate measure 18” wide, the material could measure 2” thick.

Another Fabricator Happy with the Quality of Our Plate Rolling!

Albina recently rolled ½” THICK A36 PLATE X 91″ WIDE to create:
1 cylinder: 40″ ID X 91″ LONG
1 cone: 29″ ID X 40″ ID X 49.5″ TALL

Albina’s scope of work was to prebend, trim, roll, and tack weld per the drawings provided and turn it over to the fabricator for fabrication. After we completed the job, the fabricator had this message for us, “I just wanted to pass along the attached photo and compliment on the rolling you just did for us. The parts literally could not have fit better than they did which makes our job as fabricators so much easier. Please pass along a thank you to your team for another great job.”
