The Angle Ring Company Ltd - steel bending

metal bending is our world

Steel and metal bending engineers for over 60 years

Section (Cold) Bending

Angle Ring has been offering steel bending and curving services using cold rolling and cold bending techniques for 60 years, primarily on machinery designed & built in house.

This steel bending machinery has allowed us to remain the market leader for curved steel sections, bar, tube and plate, offering a truly comprehensive & competitive service. With dozens of machines being operated, often around the clock, we are able to produce your work quickly and economically regardless of whether you require a single tube bend or a large production run of curved steel.

Initially, in 1951, the company curved steel angles bar and tube, and hence used the name the Angle Ring Company. 60 years on we now operate cold bending machines to cover the entire section range from 6mm diameter tube or bar, through to 1100mm deep beams.

Flat bar, angle sections, tubes, channels, plate, box section (SHS and RHS) universal beams, columns and joist are all within our cold rolling or section bending capacity.


  • Quick, economical, flexible, accurate
  • Small quantities or one-offs easily accommodated
  • Small or large sections
  • Solid or hollow sections
