Channel Bending

Chicago Metal is the leading resource for steel and aluminum channel bending and more. We can bend channels with the flanges out, with the flanges in, and the hard way of the web. 

The easiest channel bending process is “flanges out.” “Flanges in” channel bending can be difficult if the flanges are relatively tall. The most difficult channel bending process is “the hard way”—indeed, all else being equal, the hard way is one of the most difficult structural shapes to bend without distortion. In checking the quality of “hard way” bent steel channel, it is critical to check that the flanges are square, that there has been no buckling of the web, and that the radius is true.

Fortunately, our skilled operators are experts at rolling all channels in all orientations, and we excel at bending the most difficult sections to the tightest radii with no or minimal distortion. We can perform steel channel bending and aluminum channel bending with equal precision. We can also bend channels off axis, helically, with multiple radii, and on two different planes.

We offer a variety of secondary services to complement our channel bending and flange bending capabilities and give you more complete products. We can cut, bevel, punch, weld, grind, or polish your channel rings or curved segments.

Channel Bending Applications

Channels are often used as stiffeners on curved sheet or plate, as component parts of machinery, as cradles for tanks, and as trays to hold electrical wiring. For construction, we have provided bent steel channel for curved lintels, roof supports, and canopies.
