Roll Forming Machines

 A Roll Forming machine is a series of forming rollers which progressively take a flat piece of metal to produce a profiled component. This is usually done through a series of 4 to 24 pairs of rolls depending on the complexity of the profile.

Thicknesses of material can vary a little but the greater the range of thickness the less accurate the profile may become.

Depending upon the number of linear meters required a Roll Forming Machine will over take a press break or folding machine in efficiency and cost effectiveness after the break even point has been reached.

Profile Width Adjustment

Sometimes when profiles are required with variable widths it may be desirable to use a “Duplex”  machine [ with 2 forming heads – one fixed and one adjustable to move closer and further away from the other , This is useful for mainly wider profiles such as supermarket shelves or cable trays.

When widths are not needed to be so wide another solution is possible with “ Roller Beam “ width variation as in the video
