Let's talk about steel section bending in 2020
BIT's section bending (also known as profile bending) is performed in a variety of ways by a variety of metals. First, the bends of the standard rolling mill shapes ( equal angle (angle steel), unequal angle, channel steel, flat bar (flat steel) , square steel (square steel),round bar, Tees) are all part of the section bend. Aluminum profiles, even extremely complex ones, can be rolled into rings. Then came cold-formed sections. For example, you can form an angle from outside the plate in a bending machine and bend it to a specified radius. In this case, special tools will be needed to ensure that both legs of the corner remain the same length throughout the bending process. Other steel profiles that can be formed and then bent into rings or ring segments include channels, outer wing channels, and inner wing channels. Therefore, section bending includes all types of contour bending. Steel tube bending is one of the most common types of profile bending.
Section Bending Applications:
Aluminum extruded sections can be seen in microwave, point-to-point antennas. Other complex aluminum sections are used as turrets for machine gun mounts on military equipment.
Formed channels can often be seen on the corners of the luggage conveyors at airports. Curved unistrut inward-wing-channel sections can be seen guiding the rollers holding up the curtains around a hospital bed or supporting hooks for shirts in a laundry. Curved formed angles can be seen as the base for tanks.
