High Purity Stainless Steel Projects

Another high purity project in the books! We have been staying real busy with a number of stainless steel projects recently. Not only are they bright and shiny to look at, but they often present a unique challenge depending on the configuration and specifications for each piece. For this project, Albina bent 1¾” OD X .065″ WALL T304 Stainless Steel Tubing into multiple coils from 20 ft lengths to a 26.75” diameter.

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!

Going Above and Beyond to Meet Our Customers Needs

Albina is not only known for bending large structural members, but we service a wide range of manufacturing companies. We have consistently bent hydraulic lines for a local manufacturing company in Portland Oregon. We will bend 100’s of parts at a time on our CNC equipment. A recent production run was bent out of ½” OD X .049″ WALL T316 S/S material. This customer required some very specific radii. We did not have all of the tooling to match the exact needs. So to service our customer and meet their requirements, Albina purchased tooling to meet every radii our customer required!

Curved Steel Beer Taps at 10 Barrel Brewing in Bend, Oregon

We were recently floating the Deschutes River in Bend, Oregon and after a day of fun, we decided to go grab lunch and cool beverage at one of our favorite locations, 10 Barrel Brewing. As we looked at the menu, and admired the new remodel of the restaurant, we noticed the beer taps! We recently bent 1-1/2” OD x .065 wall T304 Stainless steel #4 finish. These are 90 degree bends on a 2-3/4” Center line radius. How exciting to see our work on display at such a hip location on Galveston Street!

Curved Steel Pipe Used for Airplane Landing Gear

Albina Co., Inc. recently completed bending 27 pieces of 1¼” OD X .156″ WALL 4130 bent on a 4” radius. We were able to hold the threaded tangent dimension during the bending process.
The curved steel pipe will be used for “nose landing gear” on small planes.

Stainless Steel Pipe Bending of Small Parts for Manufacturing Application

We recently completed a very difficult job in which we bent 3″ OD X .065″ WALL T304 Stainless Steel POLISHED, 2½” OD X .065″ WALL T304 Stainless Steel POLISHED, and 1/2″ OD X .065″ WALL T304 Stainless Steel Polished for a manufacturing customer. The really tight bends in the picture below are elbows (butt-weld fittings) that are purchased off the shelf at a pipe supply house. The bends we did are the larger radii bends. Albina is a reliable vendor when it comes to producing bent parts for manufacturing applications. When applicable, we can provide same day and/or shutdown services which is a huge plus for customers that rely on equipment running 24 hours a day. Albina is also qualified to process NQA-1 work for certified NQA-1 shops.

Curved Steel parts for Water Jet Equipment

Albina Co., Inc. recently bent 20 pieces of 3/8″ OD X .125″ WALL T304 S/S TBE that will be used on some water jet equipment. We coiled the material to a 8” diameter and bent the terminals on a 1½” center-line radius. We produce consistent, accurate and repeatable rolled metal parts and components for various manufacturing and industrial business sectors. We produce small parts such as hydraulic lines, handles, brake bands, pipe spools, boiler tubes, heat exchangers, and coils. Our bent steel can be seen on various applications in the auto, marine, aviation, locomotive, agricultural and food processing sectors. Our bends are used on locomotive frames, boat frames, deck rails and even components for homeland security helping to protect our docks and ports.

Coils and Rolled Plate Cylinders

We recently completed bending some component parts for a customer which were a mix of carbon steel and nickel plate, pipe and bar. In the first image, we bent the coil, the terminals, the cylinder and the cylinder stiffeners. In the second image, we bent the inner and out cylinders on the top half. On the third image, we bent the upper and lower cylinders. Our customer was so thrilled with the parts that we provided, we received the following email from them: “The components Albina did for us were fantastic! Please pass along to your guys that the items you guys made were just about perfect. It really helped the fabrication process go smoothly. We really appreciate the work you did on this project for us.”

Curved Steel Coils for Footwear Display

Albina Co., Inc. recently bent 3/8” solid bar coiled to create 54 total springs to a 6” center-center diameter on pitch and also bent the required terminals. The coils will be used for a footwear display to help show the “springiness of the manufacturer’s shoes.”
