Aluminium Bending Specialists have the largest capacity in the UK. ABS can bend up to 400mm section size aluminium extrusions / sections on plan, and up to 700mm in sectional size on Elevation.
Thermally broken and painted aluminium window sections can be curved up to 7000mm in length. ABS can bend all the aluminium sections supplied by all the UK and Ireland system companies.
The longest length we currently curve is 13600mm long Aluminium Bending Specialists combine the latest technology with highly skilled operators to handle your extrusion bending requirements.
At the time of enquiry, our engineers are able to advise the limitations of the bending ability of each section and offer alternative solutions if required.
ABS has a permanent and dedicated staff of 20 bending technicians / specialists that operate on a 2 shift basis. The workforce has many years in the aluminium bending industry, and it is this experience, and expertise that sets the standard in the section bending market.
Our machines bend extrusions mostly aluminium but also brass, Stainless and steel sections, these are often rolled with the use of special tooling, to various radii and including elliptical curves for architectural applications.
The in-house tooling facility allows ABS to modify and produce bending tools quickly and economically.
Whilst the encapsulation method allows a wide range of sections and extrusions to be curved without the cost of tooling. This method also allows painted sections to be curved without damaging the paintwork.
