Bending 1″OD Aluminum for Custom Boat Parts

We are making custom boat parts out of 1″ OD X .065″ WALL 6061-T6 ALUM material. Our customer needed 850 parts made for this one project. Each part was bent on a 2½” center-line radius to 90 degrees. Each part had one end flared to 37°. All parts needed to be supplied in a T6 condition upon completion and be anodized for a clean surface condition. Our bent steel can be seen on various applications in the auto, marine, aviation, locomotive, agricultural and food processing sectors. Our bends are used on locomotive frames, boat frames, deck rails and even components for homeland security helping to protect our docks and ports.

Cargo Heating Pipe Coils Bent for Barge Tanks

Albina is much more than just a structural bending facility. We service ALL industries that might require bent steel.
Recently Albina was involved with a large industrial application where we orovided Cargo Heating Pipe Coils for tanks in barges.

We were responsible for bending, trimming and washing each of the 488 lengths x 40 ft 2″ SCH40 SA106B SMLS to net 880 pcs. All bends were made to a 6” center-line-radius and our quality control department had to 100% QC parts to make sure the backwall thinning of the material was not below .079” and that ovality of the material was minimized.

After processing the first phase of this project the customer immediately placed 3 more releases as they were pleased with the quality, fair pricing, communication and customer service offered by Albina.
