A shout out to these awesome guys for all their hard work and dedication! The shop is super busy right now and they are churning through the work creating top quality steel bends for our customers! We are so busy that we are looking for qualified candidates that want to join us in our steel bending adventures. If you are interested in learning more about the available positions in our shop, please contact HR firstname.lastname@example.org.
We recently worked with a customer on a unique project where they required curved Unistrut. We were able to successfully roll 1 5/8″ X 1 5/8″ GALVANIZED UNISTRUT the hard way to a 168” radius. A unique material for rolling! We figured out a way to maintain the shape while rolling and were able to bend 116 lengths! We received a comment from our customer that “no one at the jobsite had ever seen Unistrut curved before!”
Check out the cover spot and three page feature article on Albina Co., Inc. in the June/July West Coast Edition of A2Z Manufacturing Magazine. Pages 24-26! Portland artist Devin Laurence Field produced the laser-cut stainless steel flame sculpture and Albina Co., Inc. bent 18″ STD A53B ERW 10 lens x 40 ft down to a 42 ft radius for the sculpture.
We had such a great time working with Linda and Kim to highlight and showcase all of the amazing curved steel projects we have done in Oregon, Washington, and California. Some projects featured in the article include:
Check out the two-page feature article on Albina Co., Inc. in the May Southwest Edition of A2Z Manufacturing Magazine. We had such a great time working with Linda and Kim putting the article together.
The article highlights several projects that we have participated in specifically in the states of Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico. Our company history, philosophy and future goals are also touched on in the piece.
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.
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!
We recently completed a great project where our bends will be used for various parts on high-end farming equipment. The bending project consisted of three different material types including:
Tube Steel 5″ X 5″ X .250″ WALL A500 GR B-
Albina cut and bent material to net 108 pcs.
Tube Steel 5″ X 2″ X .250″ WALL A500 GR B-
Albina cut and bent material to net 100 pcs.
Tube Steel 2″ X 2″ X .250″ WALL A500 GR B-
Albina cut and bent material to net 403 pcs.
We recently finished up some Tube Steel ¾” X ¾” X .065″ WALL 6063-T52 ALUM bent into a double 90° configuration to a 3¼” inside radius. These curved steel parts will be used for seat frames on small airplanes. We do a number of parts for the aviation and aerospace industries including hydraulic lines, exhaust lines, exterior structural parts and interior support elements like the seat frames pictured below.
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.
