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.
How to Order Curved Steel
There are certain pieces of information that we require to process your order for curved steel. When you call to place your order for curved steel, we need the following information: a) Material, including alloy or temper b) Outside diameter (OD) and wall thickness (WT) c) Centerline radius (CLR) d) Minimum straight bend between tangent points (ST) e) Maximum bend angle (BA) We can curve steel to your specifications. Please specify tolerances to be held on part shape and send drawings, print samples, fixtures or templates if necessary along with the above information to ensure that your bent steel project goes exactly as you envisioned.
