2019 Everyone should know about bending steel
Bent steel components don’t just “walk out” of the rolling mill. Bent steel members are made of straight materials and are bent by your bending company to your requirements.
The bending process does not affect the strength or structural integrity of the steel. When the shape is successfully bent without any buckling or local cracks in the steel, under actual conditions of use, the component will withstand much less stress than that associated with the bending operation. Once the bending is completed, the member can be expected to perform as needed.
