Stretch Forming by Linetec curves and finishes architectural aluminum products

Date: 28 March 2015

* Linetec exhibiting at AIA Expo booth #2858 *Stretch Forming by Linetec allows architectural product manufacturers to have their metal building components curved and finished in one location.

Half-circles, eyebrows and Gothic arches are popular architectural applications.Customers can ship their aluminum to Linetec for bending and finishing to retain the full finish warranty.Utilizing Linetec’s dedicated fleet of trucks saves customers shipping costs and transit time, as well as reduces material handling and packaging to minimize the opportunity for damage.

Linetec’s full scope of bending capabilities includes annealing and tempering to soften and harden aluminum. Born from the aerospace industry, stretch forming maintains precise dimensions throughout a curve. The extrusion is kept under constant tension, while wrapping it around a form, or die. This produces perfectly contoured products, while limiting or even eliminating wrinkling inside the arc.

In addition to stretch forming, Linetec offers a broad choice of paint, anodize and powder coat, plus field repair and restoration, thermal improvement and other support for finished aluminum products.
