Coils and Rolled Plate Cylinders

We recently completed bending some component parts for a customer which were a mix of carbon steel and nickel plate, pipe and bar. In the first image, we bent the coil, the terminals, the cylinder and the cylinder stiffeners. In the second image, we bent the inner and out cylinders on the top half. On the third image, we bent the upper and lower cylinders. Our customer was so thrilled with the parts that we provided, we received the following email from them: “The components Albina did for us were fantastic! Please pass along to your guys that the items you guys made were just about perfect. It really helped the fabrication process go smoothly. We really appreciate the work you did on this project for us.”

Need Curved Steel for a Bridge Project?

Bridge bending? Yes- we bend steel for anything, even bridges! In fact every month steel is leaving our yard for different steel bridge projects. We recently finished bending steel for two bridge projects located on opposite ends of the United States. The first project shipped to Maine and consisted of 12,000# of HSS (rectangular and square tubing). Sizes ranged from TS 8” x 8” x .375” wall to TS 14” x 14” x .375” wall. The second project located in California (a week later) was for 21,000# of W33 X 118# A992 bent the hard way. We can provide bending needs for east coast and west coast projects!


Curved Steel Wide Flange for the UC Health Highlands Ranch Hospital

Albina recently worked with a loyal customer out of Colorado on the UC Health Highlands Ranch Hospital. The new 85,000 square foot hospital is being built as a proactive approach to the projected 25%+ population increase by 2025 for this growing area of Colorado. Albina needed to bend and ship 40,000# of bent steel to meet a critical project schedule. Albina was able to finish and ship the project days before the required date, once again exceeding customer expectations!

The materials on this project consisted of:
W12 X 26# A992
W12 X 14# A992
W16 X 36# A992
W14 X 22# A992
W14 X 30# A992
W16 X 26# A992
W18 X 40# A992
W18 X 35# A992

All bent the Hard way!


Curved Steel: Spiral Bending of Tube Steel for the Philadelphia Museum of Art

Believe it or not, but Albina ships our bent steel all over the US and Canada! In fact, we recently finished a project for the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Our bent steel shipped to our customer in Virginia to be fabricated and was then shipped to the job site in Pennsylvania. We spiral and flat bent TS 20″ X 12″ X .625″ WALL A500 GR B the easy way down to a 56 ft radius.


Curved Tube Steel and Angle for the Digestive Health Institute in Great Falls, Montana

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

Curved Steel Spiral Stair Stringers at Suffolk County Community College

Suffolk County Community College (SCCC), recently opened its new $30 million, 75,000 square foot Learning Resource Center (LRC) and library on the Michael J. Grant Campus in Brentwood, Long Island, New York. Albina Co., Inc. bent the steel spiral stringers for the project. The steel spiral stringers consisted of spiral bent tube steel 20″ X 4″ X .500″ WALL A500 GR B the easy way to a 14 ft. plan view radius. We also bent the landings to a similar radius. We also spiral bent tube steel 14″ X 10″ X .500″ WALL A500 GR B the easy way to a 19 ft. plan view radius and the landings also to a similar radius.

Curved Steel Bent to a Complicated “S” Configuration for Simon Fraser University

Albina Co., Inc. recently bent 90 pieces of Tube Steel 8″ X 4″ X .375″ WALL A500 GR C the hardway to a complicated “S” configuration. The tightest “S” section that we bent was down to a 59” radius. All of the material was bent cold on our profile rolling equipment. This steel was shipping to a good customer in Canada to be fabricated and then installed at Simon Fraser University.


Curved Steel at Providence Medical Center in Medford, Oregon

Albina Co., Inc. recently completed bending 21,000 pounds of curved steel for a Providence Medical Center located in Medford, Oregon.

Meet Brian and Jaime Smith-March Madness…Size Doesn’t Matter, Big or Small!

We are basketball junkies in our family and we love watching March Madness! We love it because all scenarios are represented: big history-rich dominating schools vs. small underdog first timers, big boisterous coaches vs. the silent tactical types, and big 7-footers vs. small point guards. This last scenario is true in our family as I stand at 6’6″ and Jaime almost a foot shorter. You can see below why Jaime, who actually played D1 college basketball, implemented a “no shot blocking rule” when we first started dating!!

Meet Brian and Jaime Smith

We think that this big vs. small comparison carries over so well into our business because we have the capability to bend steel for many different scenarios as well: big high-profile structural steel projects vs. small precision parts for manufacturing and industrial applications, large projects with mass quantities of bends vs. small one-piece bends for a one-time job and we are also a small, family owned business, yet we are the premier bending expert in the entire nation. No matter the job, big or small, we would love the opportunity to be Your Bending Expert.
