Beam bending machine


The section bending machine specially customized by BIT needs the ninth group of hydraulic drive components for beam bending machine.

Due to the rapid development of China’s basic engineering, BIT series profile bending machines are more widely used in steel beam bending, such as the application of Chongqing Metro, a key project in China.

About beam profiles bending

Rolled steel beams (Section Bending Universal Column) are used everywhere – in structures for functionality or aesthetic appeal, in circular shell stiffening rings on vessels and for monorails or roof trusses. Steel beams can be rolled vertically (the weak-axis) or horizontally (the strong axis). When rolling steel beams, it is important to consider distortion.

Section bending machone for H-beam bending

Bending beams and channels on the hard-way require a strong bending force because the section modulus along the x-x axis is always very large. Moreover the combination of the large bending forces required by the process with the relatively thin thickness of the beam cause the deformation of the web itself.

Bending Beam “Hard Way” And “Easy Way” (H & I Beams)

There are two primary methods used in beam bending applications, informally known as the “easy way” and the “hard way” . BIT serise beams bending machine be ensures even the most demanding beam forming projects are completed on time and to industry-required guidelines.

When the channel steel is bent horizontally, its work difficulty is equal to H-beam bending
