NEW- Ovality Calculator Now Available on Our Website

Ovality is simply how “out of round” a round material is. The new ovality calculator determines the % of ovality (i.e. the % the material is out of round).

All round material has a certain amount of ovality (even as straight material) nothing is PERFECTLY round, mills will produce material to an ovality tolerance. When bending round material, the material will slightly oval. The material theoretic OD, the wall thickness, the radius the material is bent to and the bending method (i.e. how is the material bent) will all impact the final ovality of bent round material. Customers that are using pipe for pressure retaining systems, heat exchangers, industrial applications, boiler tubes, etc. are all concerned about the ovality of round material after bending.

The ovality calculator is a great addition to our already vast offering of general bending calculators and spiral math calculators available online.

Albina Co., Inc. Provides End Users With Tools to Successfully Quote and Understand Their Curved Steel Project

Albina Co., Inc. provides a plethora of tools on their website to allow end users the ability to not only make important steel bending calculations with the bending and spiral bending calculators, but we also provide a number of conversion charts, weight and dimension grids and reference guides. We want the end user to understand what we are quoting, why we need the information that we do, how we quote and ultimately we want the end user to understand the nuances of using curved steel on a project.

We also provide calculators to aid in determining tangent materials and bend tolerances for different material types, sizes and bending processes. Visit our “Calculators” page to gain easy access to these tools. Bookmark the page for future reference!

Mobile Friendly Website Now Available!

In recent news, we released a “mobile-friendly” website (www.albinaco.com) that provides fabricators, architects, engineers and many more with vast interactive calculators, reference materials, and capacity charts to assist with all of their bending calculations and provide answers to their technical questions. The “mobile-friendly” site is completely responsive and is easy to use and navigate on your mobile devices as well as your desktop.


Albina Co., Inc. offers custom bending calculators designed to assist customers with required bending calculations, and to provide bending tolerances and tangent material requirements needed to accurately bid a job.

In addition to the general bending calculators, Albina also offers a Spiral Math Calculator to allow customers to enter known data for spiral stringers, automatically calculate Degree of Pitch and Arc Length, and save the calculated information in their files for future reference or submit a report directly to Albina Co., Inc. for a quote!  It is that simple.

Additional highlights include a virtual tour of the company, material capacity charts and bending profiles, brochures, technical articles, industry links and numerous work examples including professional photographs of installed projects and videos of actual bending processes. Albina has several easy to use forms for requesting information or for obtaining a quote.

Online ordering is also available through Albina’s site for Duct Systems and Component Parts and a secure login can be obtained to view pricing and place orders from your smart phone or desktop.

“The driving force behind releasing a new “mobile-friendly” website was to create a seamless user experience for our customers no matter what device they use to access information. We wanted to provide an informational tool rich with easy to read capacity charts and stunning visual images to give the user a quick view into our capabilities. We also wanted to provide accessible tools to assist users in their daily job functions.” –Brian Smith, President Albina Co., Inc.
