How Does the Rotary Draw Bending Method Work and What Types of Products Can You Make?
How Does the Rotary Draw Bending Method Work and What Types of Products Can You Make?

Rotary draw bending is a cold bending method where the member is clamped to a rotating bend die and drawn around the bend die. The tailing tangent is held against the bend die by a pressure die, and the bend die rotates until the desired geometry is formed. A mandrel is often placed inside the mem...

Curved Tube Steel Used on Timber Equipment

We recently completed a project consisting of 400 pieces of bent tube steel 4" X 4" X .375" WALL A500 GR B for a customer on the east coast. All parts were cut and trimmed by Albina to a 1/16” tolerance. These bent parts will be used on equipment for the timber industry.

Curved Aluminum for Rock Guard Frames

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!

Extremely Precise Bent Steel for Chemical Processing Application
Extremely Precise Bent Steel for Chemical Processing Application

We recently bent 215 pieces of .79” OD X .083” WALL C-276 for a chemical processing application. C-276 alloy is one of the most corrosion resistant alloys currently available. This project is a perfect example of how consistent, accurate and reliable we are with jobs that require extreme precision...
