March 2020 sharing professional glossary about channel bending & channel rolling

Channel bending :

Channel bending
Channel bending

– A metal forming process used to form metal channel to a specific degree or angle.Generally channel bending differs from channel rolling in that it is more concerned with forming the channel to a specific angle ordegree, rather than a curve or radius.

Channel bending can sometimes be used as another word for channel rolling. Both refer to the metal forming processes in which chan-nels are formed to a specific degree, radius or curve.

Channel rolling :

A metal forming process used to form metal channel into curves and or radiuses.

-Channel rolling may be used to form or bend metal channels into curves at specific radiuses, to form arcs and or rings.

-Channel rolling can be done with the flanges pointed in, which is often times referred to as channel rolling the “easy-way flanges in”.

-Channel rolling can also be done with the flanges pointed out, which is generally referred to as channel rolling the “easy-way flanges out”.

-Channel rolling can also be done with the flanges pointed up or down, this is generally referred to as channel rolling the “hard-way on edge”.

Channel rolling hard-way :

– A metal forming process used to form metal channel into curves and or radiuses.

-Channel rolling may be used to form or bend metal channels into curves at specific radiuses, to form arcs and or rings.

-Channel rolling can also be done with the flanges pointed up or down, this is generally referred to as channel rolling the “hard-way on edge”

Channel rolling legs-in :

– A metal forming process used to form metal channel into curves and or radiuses.

Channel rolling legs-out :

A metal forming process used to form metal channel into curves and or radiuses.

-Channel rolling may be used to form or bend metal channels into curves at specific radiuses, to form arcs and or rings.

-Channel rolling can be done with the flanges pointed out, which is generally referred to as channel rolling the “easy-way flanges out”.

Degree :

– Then angle in degrees to which the material such as tube rolling, pipe rolling, channel rolling or beam rolling is bent.

I.D. :

I.D. – The inside diameter of the tube or pipe that is going to be rolled or bent

Minimum Tangent :

– The minimum amount of straight section required for pipe rolling, tube rolling, beam rolling and channel rolling.

O.D. :

– The outside diameter of the tube or pipe that is going to be rolled or bent.

Ovality :

– The controllable amount of distortion in pipe from its original shape during the rolling and bending process.
