Although Section bending machine many metals including aluminum, brass, copper, and other alloys, carbon steel bending is curved in higher volume than any other metal. Carbon steel comes in a wide variety of grades each with its special characteristics and mechanical properties. Some grades bend better than others; some are more easily machined; and some are more wear-resistant.


carbon steel bends in a variety of shapes including tubes, pipes, beams, bars, angles, channels, and other specialized shapes for many industries and applications:

Metal fabrication

Process equipment & storage tanks

Subsea & offshore equipment


Construction materials & architectural accents

Roofing supports

Commercial lighting

Boilers & HVAC
