Plate Rolling

Albina Co., Inc. is a premier plate processing supplier for the United States and Canada.  Albina can source, cut, roll, bevel (end prep) and fabricate complete any plate project you may require.  Our plate roll allows us to bend up to 10 ft wide sections.  We can also bend up to 2” thick plate depending on the width of the section in question.  We have successfully provided bent and fabricated plate to countless industries and end uses, some examples include:   Tanks, Cones, Cylinders, Ducting projects (with Albina supplied Angle flanges welded to the ends), Gored Elbows, Column Wraps, Custom stair cases, Marine applications, Art Work, etc.  The requirements and applications for rolled plate are limitless.

 

We can take all of the hassle out of your project and be a one source supplier.  You place an order and we will take care of everything else, including freight to your facility or job site.

Curved Steel Projects Heat Up!

The reemergence of the sunshine and warm weather in Oregon has seemed to also generate some very large Structural Steel, Plate, Pipe, Square and Rectangular tubing projects.  Many of these projects also include some supplemental fabrication work.  Supplemental fabrication projects typically involve bent materials that are then welded, drilled, trimmed, etc (i.e. value added services).  We provide these services to allow our customers (typically fabricators or manufactures) to cut one PO and not have to worry about processing secondary processes in their busy shops.  Albina has been proactive in our facility planning to allow for this surge of work.  We recently purchased another building that is being erected on our property.  This building will act as storage for work in process materials and projects.  Storing material outside our main facility will free up valuable manufacturing space for some of our massive summer / fall curved steel projects.  We are always trying to stay one step ahead of demand to continue to bring our customers the exceptional service they have grown accustomed to.

Large Diameter Plate Rolling

Albina’s Plate Rolling capacities range from 3/4″ plate up to 10’0″ in width (pre-bend up to 5/8″ thick). For flat bar bent the easy way our capabilities include any thickness and size thru 4″ x 22″. The section is dependent on thickness to width.

We recently completed a project consisting of rolled plate 1/2″ thick x 120″ wide. The plate was 216” in diameter and rolled to 180°.

Albina is the “Go To” Bender and Roller of Choice for Many Fabricators

We recently received some feedback from a customer about the quality of not only our bending and forming capabilities, but our great customer service as well. “Your company has become our “go to” for steel bending and forming. This doesn’t happen without the professionalism and dedication of the entire company, from the person who unlocks the door in the morning to the person who ties down the load at night.” Curtis at Progressive Steel

Albina Rolls Plate for Guardrail at Portland Community College Campus

Albina recently provided rolled plate for a guardrail at the SE Campus of Portland Community College and our customer sent the following feedback: “The rolled plates you processed for us had to be welded together for an exposed circular guardrail. We assembled the plates, ends lined-up, radiuses matched – the parts fit perfectly. Thank you and your team for your accuracy and performance.”
