Beam and angle forming is a process used to bend an iron to a specific degree or angle.Typically beam forming differs from angle iron rolling, in that it is more concerned with forming the angle iron to a specific angle or degree, rather than a curve or radius. Beam forming processes use applied force to a piece of sheet metal to modify its geometry rather than remove any material, often using a die to create specific shapes (ie I Beams, Tees, etc). The applied force stresses the metal beyond its yield strength, causing the material to deform, but not to fail. By doing so, the sheet can be bent or stretched into a variety of complex shapes.
