Albina’s New Plate Roll Is In Action!

Our new plate roll is busy and we have some great projects on the machine right now. We are in the process of bending material for some custom tanks made out of Nickel material. This project consists of various tanks rolled to different diameters. All material is Nickel 201 ranging in thickness from 3/16” to 3/8”. The plate sections are up to 72” long prior to rolling. Diameters we are rolling to range from 57” to 107”. In addition to the tanks we are proving the cooling tubes as well. Cooling tubes are bent out of 1” Sch40 Nickel 201 (with terminals) to match the diameter of the tanks. Needless to say, this is a fun and challenging project!

Do you Need Some Rolled Plate?

Albina has purchased a new plate roll to add to our capabilities!
This new plate roll is a Lemas Hydraulic 4-roll, 3/8” capacity over 6 feet long.
The diameter of all rolls measures 7.87”. This machine will allow us to roll material tighter then we could previously roll. It will also allow us to roll thinner material then we could previously roll. We had a recent project requiring us to roll some very tight cylinders which prompted the purchase of the machine, but we are excited to take on more new work that we previously had to turn away.

Steel Plate Rolling

End uses for rolled steel plate are vast. Products made from rolled steel plate include cylinders, conical shapes, column wraps (stiffeners), bridge supports and industrial duct systems. Albina Co., Inc.’s plate rolling capabilities include 3/4″ plate up to 10’0″ in width (pre-bend up to 5/8″ thick). Albina can also roll flat Bar the Easy Way to any thickness and size thru 4″ x 22″ where the section is dependent on thickness to width. For an in-depth explanation of the steel plate rolling process see our Bending Methods page. For more images and rolled steel product applications visit our Manufacturing and Industrial Parts page to see the various tanks we have produced as well as the full scope of parts we produce for various manufacturers.
