Tackling Angle Iron with a Rotary Draw Bending Machine
Anyone who has tried to bend angle iron material knows how difficult it can be to keep the material square while bending. Angle iron always wants to twist when it is drawn into a bend. Check out page 45 of the April 2016 issue of Fabricating & Metalworking and you will see how we were able to assist a valued customer by modifying their tooling. Our service techs fabricated a roller pressure die to support the legs of the material while bending angle iron on a rotary draw bending machine. Applying pressure in this manner keeps the angle iron material from twisting.
