tube bending

Section Bending Pipe

Pipe and tubing is also known as HSS (hollow structural steel), just like square and rectangular tubing, since it is hollow.

Depending upon your unique project requirements, BIT pipe bending machine may be performed on a variety of materials, including carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, and copper.

beam bending

Bending Universal Beam

Beams and wide flange are both bent by BIT series section bending machine, from the very small sizes to the very large sizes. Its ability to bend wide flange and I-beam the easy way (against the weak axis) and the hard way (against the strong axis).

H beam bending machine

Bending Universal Column

Section bending machine can bend all types of beam / wide flange including aluminum, stainless and carbon steel.

I-Beam and wide flange are specified in similar fashions.

The most common bending method is a roll bend or pyramid bends method. Straight material is inserted into the rolls; the rolls are then moved horizontally to put the desired radius into the material. The material can also be bent incrementally hot or incrementally cold. This is where small sections of material are bent at one time. When finished the section has a smooth curve to the bent section.

u channel bending machine

Bending metal C(U)-channel

Channels are featured in tank stiffeners, tank supports, roof beams, circular platforms and fabricated trusses.

Depending upon your unique project requirements, Profile Bending angle bending may be performed on a variety of materials, including carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, and copper.

bent tee profiles

Section Bending Tees

Tee is made from taking a standard length of wide flange material and cutting the web to result in 2 lengths of tee material.

Section bending machine can bend all types of Tee including aluminum, stainless and carbon steel.

Bending Angle Profiles

Section Bending Unequal Angle

Particular attention should be paid to the angle bending of unequal leg angles. You must specify short leg in, short leg out, long leg in, long leg out. Otherwise the radius or diameter of such rolled angles is usually specified as measured just as the corresponding equal leg angles.

angle bending machine

Section Bending Equal Angle

Angles are often used in tank stiffeners, matching flanges, curved lintels, hand rails, lagging rings, form work and fabricated roof trusses.

Depending upon your unique project requirements, Profile Bending angle bending may be performed on a variety of materials, including carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, and copper.

Can also bend all types of angle as well; including aluminum, stainless and carbon steel. Carbon angle (mill produced) is classified as ASTM A36 resulting in a yield point (PSI) of 36,000 minimum.

bending flat bar

Section Bending Flat Bar

For very tight radius bending you can utilize a draw bending process where you must be pull the material (draw the material) around a bend die matching the desired bend radius.
But for larger or sweeping radii must be utilize a roll bending process (section bending).
