We can split any size wide flange into “T” and straighten, in our profile roll bending equipment, to mill tolerances. Albina recently split W8 X 24# A992 into 192 pieces of WT4 x 12#. After splitting we rolled stem out to a 35 ft radius. We also bent 96 pieces of 4″ X 4″ X ¼” ANGLE A36 to the same 35 ft radius (legout). All of the beam splitting and rolling was for a new City Office Building in Northern California.
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.
Got big beams to bend? Look no further than Albina Co., Inc.! We are just finishing up a beam bending project for the Murray Amphitheater in Murray, Utah. Murray Arts in the Park provides a summer full of artistic entertainment. The evening subscription series usually opens in late May and runs through Labor Day in the Murray Park amphitheater. This project consists of 55,000# of bent wide flange the hard way. All wide flange beams were bent to a radius that is tighter than 100 ft.
The list of beams consist of:
W24 X 76# A992
W30 X 108# A992
W36 X 135# A992
W36 X 170# A992
Albina will not shy away from any work (within our capacity) because it might be difficult to bend. We thrive on the difficult projects that others can’t do! Stay tuned for final installation pictures.
Albina can SUPPORT all of your steel bending needs. We were recently awarded a project to provide tunnel supports for a customer out of Arizona.
We are processing 40,000# of bent steel tunnel supports for this particular opportunity. The project is being bent out of 60 ft lengths of wide flange W8 X 67# A992. We are providing AESS quality bends for all 45 pieces we are supplying. Each bend is to an 11’ radius the hard way. If you need a steel bending company to SUPPORT your needs, look no further than Albina!
A loyal customer recently came to us with a scheduling problem. They needed 60,000# of structural steel and pipe bent in a very short period of time. Yes, our shop is very busy right now, but we needed to figure out a way to get this material bent and ready to ship. We modified our schedule, worked extra shifts and long days to meet the requirements for this job. We also procured the material for the project so our customer didn’t have to worry about finding the material. All 28 lengths were bent to various configurations each length varied from 20 ft long to 60 ft long. The largest structural member processed for this job was W18 X 106# A992 bent the hard way to a 150 ft radius. All materials were bent to AESS standards for the Mountain Park Church located in Arizona.
Some would think that a 24” tall beam weighing 84# per ft would be a big chunk of steel. One might even ask if it is possible to bend such a large section of steel. The answer would be to contact Albina. We are experts in bending the very small and the very large….you name it and we will bend it. Yes W24x84# beam is a large chunk of steel, but certainly not too large for the experts at Albina. A loyal customer out of Deer Park, Washington contacted us to bend this material the easy way down to a very tight 42 ft radius. After bending the 25,000# of steel, our customer is fabricating the sections and will eventually ship to Alaska for the new Juneau Seawalk.
We have done it again! Albina continues to “Bend the Rules” of the steel bending process to continue to provide bends that are extremely difficult to our customer base. Albina recently rolled wide flange W8x24# the hardway to a 4 foot inside radius to AESS standards! This is an extremely tight radius to bend to and our operators bent it to perfection!
Track season is in full swing and did you know that our curved steel members are used to create many of the elevated tracks that reside in recreational facilities and fitness centers around the country? Albina Co., Inc. bent several pieces of large wide flange W33 x 169# that provided the curved structural supports for the elevated track frame for the Fitness Center at Eielson Airforce Base.
Are you looking to build a new home or do a remodel to make your home stand out from the rest? Think about using curved steel beams to give your roof line a unique, eye catching look. Not to mention, the structural integrity of the curved steel beams is unparalleled when compared to other building materials.
Albina Co., Inc, recently completed a project for a personal residence in California that involved splitting wide flange W12 X 30# A992 into WT6 X 15# and rolling stem in to a 75 ft radius. Albina also rolled tube steel TS 10″ X 6″ X .500″ WALL A500 GR B the hardway to a 75 ft radius and wide flange W10 X 30# A992 the hardway to a 75 ft radius to create the curved roof trusses.
Here is an update on the bent structural materials used to create a custom treehouse.

b) 1/2″, 3/4″ and 3/8″ Rolled Plate
c) Tube Steel 8″ x 4″ x .250″ Wall A500 GR B
d) W6 x 15# A992 and W8 x 15# A992 Wide Flange
