Aluminium Extrusion Bending UK
Aluminium section bending is the process of using specialist machinery to form an individual piece of aluminium into a different shape.
One of the key properties of aluminium is that it is malleable, meaning it can be bent into various shapes to accommodate a wide number of usage purposes. Aluminium can be used to create whole structures such as aluminium windows, or the aluminium piece can form only part of the total structure by being cut into specific sections, as is the case with aluminium section bending.
Here at Aluminium Bending Specialists, we offer aluminium section bending across a range of industries and project scales. Harnessing our innovation and curiosity for engineering that we’ve developed over the last 15 years in business, we can help you with all your aluminium section bending needs.
How To Bend Aluminium Sections
The first stage of the aluminium section bending process is to select the correct grade of aluminium, with a total of eight main aluminium series types to choose from. Each series has different properties, meaning some types of aluminium will be more suited to bending than others.
From there, the aluminium section will undergo either roll bending, mandrel bending or stretch bending so that it can be formed into its desired dimensions.
In-house tools can also be used to perfect the shape so that it meets the client’s requirements.
