We had to mill order 12″ SCH40 (.406″ WALL) 6061-T6 Aluminum material to create the curved members for the overhead canopy at Pacific Plaza park in Dallas, Texas. This is a VERY rare material to get out of a mill. We ordered 30 lengths in total and bent, trimmed and marked top dead center on all parts. The material was bent to AESS (Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel) standards and very tight tolerances. Pacific Plaza has officially broken ground and is part of an urban renewal project transforming surface parking lots into a neighborhood park. The park is slated to be completed by the fall of 2019.
We recently completed a job bending some rock guard frames out of 1″ SCH80 6063-T52 Aluminum. Albina cut and bent the aluminum to net 500 pieces. All of the pieces were bent on a 5″ center line radius. It was quite an amazing site to see them all packaged and ready for shipment in our yard!
