Bending is a process by which metal can be deformed by plastically deforming the material and changing its shape. The material is stressed beyond the yield strength but below the ultimate tensile strength. The surface area of the material does not change much. Bending usually refers to deformation about one axis.
Bending is a flexible process by which many different shapes can be produced. Standard die sets are used to produce a wide variety of shapes. The material is placed on the die, and positioned in place with stops and/or gages. It is held in place with hold-downs. The upper part of the press, the ram with the appropriately shaped punch descends and forms the v-shaped bend.
Bending is done using press brakes that normally have a capacity of 20 to 200 tons to accommodate stock from 1m to 4.5m . Larger and smaller presses are used for specialized applications.
Steel bending e metal bending technology delivers both precision and flexibility. The company uses only the latest technology in bending machine. With a fleet of press brakes capable of providing greater design versatility, even higher precision and shorter set-up times, can handle lengths up to 4000mm and apply a force up to 230 tonnes.
Since 1908 the company has provided tube bending machines, bending of pipes, bar bending, beam bending, structural steel bending and plate rolling for original equipment manufacturers and construction. That accumulated expertise, along with our state-of-the-art bending machines and highly trained employees, translates into cost effective, 99% error-free quality for all of your steel bending and rolling of other metals.
Our tube bending capabilities include round, rectangular and square tubing from 3/8 inch diameter to 24 inch outside diameter and virtually every size tube in between. Applications include parts for roll-over protection on vehicles, elbows for process plants, and bicycle racks. In construction, tube bending is used for parts of roof trusses, as stringers on bridges, for canopies and circular staircases. The engineers designed and manufactured arms to support the buckets on their front-end loaders.
Products have the capabilities of bending pipes up to 24 inch diameter. Applications include pipe bending for agricultural and construction machinery, for process piping and for antennas. Construction applications include sections for curved pipe trusses, bridges, circular stairs, and canopies. We are bending bars up to 36 inch by 12 inch. Applications include bending bars for flanges to connect pipe, stiffeners around tanks and pipe clamps. Construction applications include bending bars for handrails, strakes on stacks, and curved lintels.
