Summary Cold bending is the most successful method of bending steel for use in construction and industry. Principle It results in a smooth and even curved section of steel and is especially accurate in bending profiles. By placing the metal profile in between three rolls in a profile bending machine (also called section bender,angle bending […]
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.
When you need to bend various types of metal profiles, cold bending has many advantages over hot bending.
Whether you are dealing with any other shape of beams, tubes, channel or angle, sometimes 3D, 4D or even 5D bending is required so that they can reach the desired angle.
There are many processes to bend metal profiles, and cold bending is one of the commonly used methods;
profile bending machines and plate bending machines are machines that use the principle of three points to make a circle and use cold bending to bend metal profiles.
