SECTION BENDING FLAT BAR

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

Steel Flat Bars 

Definition

Metal flat bars or ‘Flat Sections’

Steel flat bars are one of the most basic of building materials.

Flat metal bars are practical anywhere a connection between two beams is required.

Appliction of bent flat bar

Bent flat bars are frequently used in tank stiffeners, matching flanges, curved lintels, hand rails, curved stringers, pipe clamps and kick rails on circular platforms.

Bars can be bent with virtually every bending process.

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.

But for larger or sweeping radii must be utilize a roll bending process (section bending).

At this time, need to use flat bar bending machine.

Appliction of flat bars

  • Base plates
  • End plates
  • Stiffeners (secondary plates)
  • Tabs
  • Gussets
  • Splice plates

When a flat section is cut into smaller pieces it is called a flat steel plate. Flat sections are often used to strengthen other beams and are sometimes used to reinforce timber joists. That is why it is so typical to see a flat steel bar with holes in it, ready to be bolted in place.

What is flat bar bending?

Flat bar can be bent both the easy way (against the weak axis) and the hard way (against the strong axis).

Flange bending machine have the ability to bend flat bar the hard way for any thickness .And have the ability to bend flat bar the easy way for any thickness.
