Albina’s plate roll has been extremely busy as of late and we recently rolled 1/2″ X 96″ A36 and 3/8″ X 96″ A36 plate to a 55 foot radius for a large tank. Very cool pictures below! Did you know that our plate rolling capacity is determined by a number of factors. The thickness we can roll is tied directly to the width of the plate we are bending. For example our plate roll can bend up to 10 foot wide material, but can only bend ¾” thick plate at 10 foot wide. As the plate becomes smaller in width we can bend thicker material. For example if a piece of plate measure 18” wide, the material could measure 2” thick.
Albina recently rolled ½” THICK A36 PLATE X 91″ WIDE to create:
1 cylinder: 40″ ID X 91″ LONG
1 cone: 29″ ID X 40″ ID X 49.5″ TALL
Albina’s scope of work was to prebend, trim, roll, and tack weld per the drawings provided and turn it over to the fabricator for fabrication. After we completed the job, the fabricator had this message for us, “I just wanted to pass along the attached photo and compliment on the rolling you just did for us. The parts literally could not have fit better than they did which makes our job as fabricators so much easier. Please pass along a thank you to your team for another great job.”
