Chicago Metal Rolled Products provides structural steel bending services for all structural steel sections for both construction and OEMs. When it comes to structural beam bending, we are the biggest provider in the country, with the world’s largest beam bender. In structural beam bending, we can bend up to W44x290 beams the hard way (x-x axis).
We are founding members of the American Institute of Steel Construction Bender/Roller Committee, serving the construction industry. We are also members of National Ornamental & Miscellaneous Metals Association (NOMMA) and the Stairway Manufacturers Association (SMA). In addition to promoting steel as the material of choice for construction, we also promote a subset of fabricated steel, namely structural steel bending.
We are members of the Fabricators and Manufacturers Association (FMA), and the American Welding Society (AWS) for OEM structural rolling.

Chicago Metal Rolled Products has the highest capacity and the most experience in structural steel bending for construction. Our collection of heavy bending equipment is unmatched in the country.
Not only can we bend the heaviest sections, we can also bend steel in more different ways than most other companies. We can bend all members off-axis, helically, in two planes (compound bends), and with multiple radii. At the other end of the spectrum, we can bend very small sections to tight radii: angles as small as 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/8 to a 3-1/2” diameter.
OEMs use the full range of our structural steel bending capabilities. No other company in the U.S. has the structural rolling range that we do, and no other company in North America has the sheer capacity to bend as many tons as we do.
We offer a variety of secondary operations to add further value to our structural bending services and give you a more complete product. We can provide secondary services like welding, grinding, punching, drilling, saw cutting, and more. For example, we can fabricate and weld end plates with punched holes to horse-shoe shaped beams for tunnel supports. Or, we can roll an angle ring, weld it, and then punch holes in it for use as a fan housing.
Construction applications for structural bending include arches, roof supports, parts for trusses, canopies, and lintels. OEM structural bending applications include producing flanges, brackets, housings, and tank supports.
The more you look for these bent members, the more you will see them in architecture and equipment. In countless cases, bent structural steel is the solution to challenges that architects and engineers face every day.
