Inside Look at AGAM: Curves

Display designs over the last 20+ years have incorporated more and more curved elements. Though curving is both an art and science, it is one of AGAM’s fortes. AGAM provides unparalleled service by consistently giving our clients custom curves that meet their exact specifications in a timely manner.

Robert (photographed to the right) is our Lead Curve Specialist. He is responsible for overseeing three CNC roller benders; two saw stations and up to three employees that work in his department.

Bending curves is an art and science because aluminum extrusions change properties based on age and temperature. So, even if Robert writes programs for the different extrusions and radius’s, they cannot be 100% perfect the first time and “tweaking” always needs to be done.

To ensure curves come out correctly, Robert uses a unique radii-measuring device and also checks the curve with a 1:1 scale print out of the curve.
