Industry Leader in Bending Large Structural Members the Hardway

Albina Co., Inc. is an industry leader in bending large structural members (such as Beam/Wide Flange and Channel) the hardway. Albina has the capacity to roll up to W36 x 230# the hardway and all mill sizes produced for channel. Bending the hardway simply means bending / curving material against the X-X axis. A hardway bent beam or channel section will have the curved web parallel to the ground when the structural member is lying flat on the ground. Bending beam/channel the hardway certainly poses problems and can result in poor quality bends not meeting ASTM-A6 standards. Common problems with bending beam/channel the hardway are waves in the web and/or flanges out of square or pulled away from the web. Albina has developed bending techniques and tooling that allow us to meet the highest quality standards when bending/rolling beams and channels. The next time you are in need of bent structural members (channel /beam) the hardway always be certain you are working with a company that has experience rolling the required size and shape. This will help you avoid any unexpected quality problems at time of receipt.
