Stretch Forming and Bending

One of the many customized aluminum extrusion fabrication services Alexandria Industries provides our customers is precision stretch forming and bending.

The types of different bending and stretch-forming methods will deliver different results. We help our customers understand the differences and provide valuable input on the best bending or forming solution for their product—all while achieving some of our industry's tightest tolerances.

Stretch Forming

Stretch forming your aluminum extrusions is common for a variety of product applications.

  • Marine industry: boat gunnels, windshields and structural components
  • Medical industry: C arms for electro-medical imaging machines
  • Automotive: structural and decorative components

Our fully programmable 32-ton stretch former is capable of forming curved aluminum parts as long as 288 inches. If this sounds like a solution to meet your product development needs, please contact us for more information.


From simple tube bending to the more complex custom extrusion bending, our ability to bend materials to provide the curved or bent aluminum shapes you need is one way we offer greater value to you.

Our programmable rotary, push, twin head and 3-roll benders make it possible for us to provide uniquely formed extrusions that allow you to you create innovative products.
