The Angle Ring Company Ltd - steel bending

metal bending is our world

Steel and metal bending engineers for over 60 years

Plate Rolling / Forming

Either using your free issue material or complete supply, we can offer plate rolling or plate forming in a wide range of carbon and stainless steels from 5mm thick in up to 3 metre lengths, or up to 200mm thick on our plate forming equipment. A proportion of our range can be pre-ended without an additional bending allowance to minimise waste and can be supplied with flame cut or machined edge and / or end preps.

To complement our plate rolling and plate forming operations we offer an in-house welding service enabling us to re-roll to tight tolerances prior to despatch and join tubes with full penetration circumferential welds to achieve longer lengths.

All our Submerged Arc, M.I.G. and T.I.G. weld procedures and welders are coded to the latest American and British standards.

We have strong links with local subcontractors and are able to offer the full range of N.D.T. operations including radiography, ultrasonic test, dye pen and M.P.I.; also heat treatment operations including stress relieve, normalise and solution anneal. Longer items can be formed using different techniques. See our press braking section for more information.
