Forming

AR Steel Forming Services 

Wearalloy 400 and 450 can be cold formed in a press brake or rolls. At sharper bends, wear plate forming should be performed with the axis of bend at right angles to then rolling direction or cross-grain of the plate. Remove rough edges on the plate by grinding prior to forming. It is necessary to allow for a bending radius of 3 to 5 times that of ordinary steel. Minimal cold forming can be performed on our Wearalloy 500 with proper equipment.

With a highly trained team, quality products, and quick lead times, Ford Steel is the right choice whenever your company needs wear resistant steel plate forming services.
