Induction Bending

We operate three induction bending machines at Angle Ring, that have been designed and built in house, to offer a controlled bending technique through the application of localised heat and a copper induction coil.

The induction coil heats the circumferential part of the profile to a temperature between 700°C to 1100°C , which allows the section to be moved slowly through the coil whilst the bending force is applied by a fixed radius arm.

Unlike cold bending methods, this hot bending process requires just a single pass through the machine and eliminates strain on the section to produce minimal deformation.

Sections, tube, and hollows can be curved to single or multiple radii, or even to elliptical or 3D shapes.

Read more about what we can bend here

Types of profile we can bend:

  • Universal Beams/Columns
  • Tubes & Pipes
  • Rectangular & Square Hollow Sections
  • Elliptical & Semi-Elliptical Tubes
  • P.F.C.

Our largest machines can bend up to these maximum capacities:

  • Up to 914mm o/d Tube & up to 650x450x40mm Structural Hollow Section
  • Maximum section size subject to agreement

Induction Bending is a suitable process for the following market sectors:

  • Architectural & Construction
  • Civils
  • Defence
  • Energy
  • Industrial
  • Manufacturing
  • Offshore

The Kelpies become the front runner as the largest public work of art in Scotland

The Kelpies become the front runner as the largest public work of art in Scotland

One of Scotland’s largest visitor attractions, The Kelpies stand proud on the banks of the Forth & Clyde canal near Falkirk, with Angle Ring playing a key part in the production of the two 30m high horses heads that elegantly break out of the ground in the 350 hectare parkland in the central lowland region.

Designed as part of the Helix Project that transformed the landscape to create a vibrant park and visitor hotspot, the £41m project that opened in 2013 boasts 300 tonnes of intricate steelwork as it becomes the largest public work of art in Scotland.

To Hull and back as Angle Ring bends its way to the top of the Princes Quay Footbridge

The Highways England pedestrian footbridge spanning the A63 between Princes Dock and Hull Marina is now fully open after the two year project was completed in early 2021.

Angle Ring is proud to have worked on the eye catching curved canopy that spans the length of the bridge, as well as key structural components in the 60m long structure.

Steel bending Engineers Angle Ring put the Arch in Wembley

Despite the main curve of the 315m span Wembley arch being faceted in a series of straight sections it still required a large amount of complex bending to produce the lateral rings and jointing plates, which act as the hub for each section.
