In the picture, the BIT section bending machine uses the function of a tee bending machine, and it is bending a high-strength stainless steel tee.
A quicker and more effective way to straighten tees is with a BIT serise section bending machine (also called a “profile bending machine,” or an “section bender.”). The curved steel tee is run through large rollers with smaller calibrating rollers until it is straight.
The process is faster than ram straightening and provides superior quality. Mill tolerance for straightness of tees is 1/8in variation from straightness in ten feet. Ram bending can achieve this tolerance. With roll straightening, however, tolerances of 1/8in over 40 feet and longer can be achieved.
BIT serise section bending machine can bend carbon steel tees, stainless steel tees, and other custom-bent metal tees to match your unique specifications.
When bending steel tees stem in, the radius or diameter is usually specified as measured from the outside of the flange. (Please see image.)
When bending steel tees stem out, the radius or diameter is usually specified as measured from the inside of the flange. (Please see image.)
When bending steel tees stem up, the radius or diameter is usually specified as measured from the center line of the flange.
BIT seris profile bending machine bend steel tees stem out, stem in, and stem up from the smallest sizes 80mm up to 350mm x 350mm-1/2# tees.
BIT seris profile bending machine can bend steel tees with a web thickness of 35mm.
