Structural Steel Bending at Peterson Auto Museum

Albina Co., Inc. bent 36 pieces of 6 5/8″ OD X .375″ wall round steel tubing and 384 pieces of 6″ SCH80 6061-T6 ALUM to create the unique shape for the Peterson Auto Museum in Los Angeles, CA.  Albina cut, bent and trimmed all pieces per the provided drawings. While most of the bent material was covered with the “skin” of the building, the bent steel parts are what gave the museum its’ unique shape and appearance. Every part was slightly different and needed to be processed to very tight tolerances.
