Aluminium Profile Twisting

Aluminium Profile Twisting

Aluminium bending is a rather niche industry. Even more niche is the process of controlled Aluminium Profile Twisting.

Controlled twisting aluminium sections is not a simple task. Often, during the aluminium bending process, some amount of accidental twisting can take place. This is usually a defect and is incredibly difficult to control when it does take place.

The process of controlled twisting is a specialist procedure and often requires unique and purpose built machines in order to properly control. The wave length, degree and radius of the twisted areas are all key features. This creates a purposeful and repeatable twists that can be used for a number of decorative purposes.

At Alubend we have a number of methods and machines for twisting aluminium extrusions. Our engineers can twist customer supplied profiles as well as a number of specialist twisting profiles designed for the absolute best results for twisting.

  • Aluminium Profile Twisting up to 600 x 100mm
  • Lengths up to 12 metres
  • Consistent, repeatable twists
  • Various shapes and twist profiles

Whether it’s for architectural and industrial design, decorative features, or solar shading – twisted aluminium extrusions are widely used in numerous industries and sectors worldwide. Although the vast majority of the projects relate to the architectural and transportation industry, curved aluminium extrusions have been exponentially gaining popularity among other market sectors.


Twisted Aluminium Extrusions for Solar Shading

External sunshades are simply the most effective method of reducing heat and glare in a building’s interior. Properly designed sun controls can reduce heat gain and increase the interior’s usable space by allowing occupants to sit adjacent to windows. Twisted Aluminium Extrusions are perfect for this use.

A number of options are available for blades shapes and designs, which allows a variety of blade configurations to produce a bespoke design. Adding bending and twisting to these choices allow for an almost infinite number of possibilities in terms of design.

Solar Shading is ideal for both new and existing construction. They provide effective shading while maintaining unobstructed views.
