Beams and wide flange are both bent by BIT series section bending machine, from the very small sizes to the very large sizes. Its ability to bend wide flange and I-beam the easy way (against the weak axis) and the hard way (against the strong axis).
Section bending machine can bend all types of beam / wide flange including aluminum, stainless and carbon steel.
I-Beam and wide flange are specified in similar fashions.
The most common bending method is a roll bend or pyramid bends method. Straight material is inserted into the rolls; the rolls are then moved horizontally to put the desired radius into the material. The material can also be bent incrementally hot or incrementally cold. This is where small sections of material are bent at one time. When finished the section has a smooth curve to the bent section.
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.
The stainless steel car roof curved beam is formed by bending a stainless steel plate. The parts are asymmetrical profiles, thin walls (minimum 1mm) and the contours are intersected by multiple curvature radii with a minimum radius of curvature of R = 350 mm.
