Beam Bending

Steel Beam Tolerance After Rolling

Bent beams are used everywhere – in structures for functionality or aesthetic appeal, in circular shell stiffening rings on vessels and for monorails or roof trusses. Steel beams can be rolled vertically (the weak-axis) or horizontally (the strong axis). When rolling steel beams, it is important to consider distortion.

Beam Bending

There are two primary methods used in beam bending applications, informally known as the “easy way (I-Beams)” and the “hard way (H-Beams).” BIT section bending machines excels at both, that ensures even the most demanding beam forming projects are completed to industry-required guidelines.
