Section Bending Flat Bar

What is section bending flat bar?

Flat Bar is frequently used in tank stiffeners, matching flanges, curved lintels, hand rails, curved stringers, pipe clamps and kick rails on circular platforms.

Bending profiles flat bar

Bar materials can come in various shapes and sizes. BIT Series Flat bar bending machine ( Profile Bending Machine ) can be ability to bend round bar, square bar and flat bar. All of these shapes are solid.

Bars can be bent with virtually every bending process we have available with our Section Bending Machine. 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. For larger or sweeping radii you will utilize a roll bending process or plate roll.

BIT Series Profile Bending Machine can bend all types of bar including aluminum, stainless and carbon steel.

Bars are formed by either a cold drawn process or a hot drawn process. The different processes result in different material properties which are defined by local mills that are producing bars. Hot rolled bars are typically designated as A36 with a yield point (PSI) of 36,000 minimum. Cold rolled bars are typically designated as 1018 with a yield point (PSI) of 54,000 minimum.

Flat bar can be bent both the easy way (against the weak axis) and the hard way (against the strong axis). We have the ability to bend flat bar the hard way for any thickness and size thru FB 2½” x 16” (that is 2½” thick material!). We have the ability to bend flat bar the easy way for any thickness and size thru FB 4” x 22”.

Bars are most commonly used for smaller manufactured parts and for industrial applications.
