Cambering forms an upwards curve in a linear product relative to its center. Camber is the amount of deflection induced in the opposite direction of its load. When a beam is subjected to vertical downward loads, it has a tendency of deflecting downwards. In building construction, adding camber to flooring components prevents bowing or sagging over time and relieves stress on other supporting frames. Cambered beams can also be found in truck chassis.
Infra-Metals’s cambering process can handle a variety of beam sizes. We can camber a minimum length of 20′ and up to WF 40 X 397#.
Note: Please verify the amount of Camber in inches with your process order.
