There are quite a few different induction bending machines and induction heat sources on the market. The common theme between all of the equipment is how the material is heated. When the metals are subject to induction bending, they are heated externally (from the outside of the material and the heat transfers through the material to the inside of the material) using copper induction coils. The heat zone (heated area) is typically a fairly narrow circumferential area (2” – 6”), which matches the width of the induction coils that are being used to heat the material. Induction heat sources are extremely accurate in their ability to control the temperature of the material. Materials are heated using high frequency induced electrical power.
Companies using induction heat for bending will typically slowly move material through an induction heating coil and bend materials incrementally (in small increment sections) or they will use a fixed radius arm arrangement to reach a desired radius.
Quick heat, great uniformity
As it sits 10 seconds you see the heat band widening
No variation in the corners
Thank you very much for your quick response and turnaround time on our tube order. The tubes fit perfectly! I look forward to using Albina and your help personally on all our upcoming bent tube replacement projects. We couldn’t have asked for a better product.
We got the first shipment of the curved tubes. We pulled 3 at random; they dropped into the fixture or were very close (so close as to be a non-issue) and were perfectly flat. Also, none of the ones I saw on the top of the pile appeared to be scratched up requiring us to spend extensive amounts of time grinding them to meet our customer's cosmetic needs. My supervisor was actually giddy. He said they were going to be a joy to work with. You made his day (and therefore mine).
Curved steel members don't just "come that way" from the mill. Curved steel members are produced from straight lengths of material and are bent per your specifications.
Albina Co., Inc. produces the highest quality curved steel products in the steel industry and provides the most reliable and professional customer service experience.
