Heavy-Duty Steel Construction

Hydraulic straightening and cambering presses are applied in heavy-duty steel construction industry to pressurize or straighten beams and profiles. For optical design reasons, contemporary steel construction demands the cambering of construction elements (slight camber against gravity) in order to achieve the visual effect of straight horizontal lines in building structures under load. The same applies to thermal distortion of galvanized construction elements or plates after thermal (flame) or plasma cutting operations.

There are many examples for quasi “organic” shapes in modern architecture triggered by smoothly bent lines in load-bearing elements. Today, cost pressure and deadline constraints on the construction sites demand delivery of fitting structural pieces just in time. Precision and technical features of machines made by Kunkel make it easy to master those challenges.
