Roll forming is a continuous process in which a stripe of material passes through a series of roller dies and progressively shaped to the desired contour. Custom roll forming means roll forming plus design and engineering services. Consulting a custom roll former in early stages will be very helpful in designing and redesigning parts in a way that will reduce your cost and simply the production and assembly. They can deliver finished shapes, cut to exact length, ready for assembly products for you.
There are many markets served by custom roll formers including aerospace, Appliances, agricultural implements, architecture, automotive, construction, energy conservation, furniture, hardware, highway products, material handling, recreational equipments, transportation, aircraft and so on.
Advantages of custom roll forming
Custom roll forming increases the structural strength of parts. Custom roll forming does require secondary operations thus it helps to reduce coast and lead time. There is flexible tooling to produce multiple shapes, lengths and pierce patterns in various metals and thickness in custom roll forming process. Any material parts can be rolled into rings and ring segments. Custom roll formed shapes offer superior surface finish. Sharp clean contours are maintained in custom roll forming.
Metal roll forming
Metal roll forming falls under the general category of roll forming. It includes the continuous forming of bulk materials between two rotating roller tools. Metal roll forming is used for the forming of any material that is ductile at the forming temperature. Due to its versatility and exciting results metal rolling process is considered as highly regarded practice in the metal industry. The metal rolling process has the ability to apply speed and quality to projects of all sizes and applications. The same rolling machinery can be used to produce wide variety of cross section profiles in the metal roll forming process. hot rolled steel, cold rolled steel, structural grade steel, high strength low alloy steel, ultra high steel, stainless steel, aluminum, Galvanized bars, brass, copper, plated materials, composite materials are the metal used in the metal roll forming process.
Uses of metal roll forming products in various industries
There are many uses for the metal roll formed products. Many industries make use of the metal roll formed products including automotive, concrete form works, construction, agriculture, conveyors, home appliances, cable trays, office furniture, enclosures, elevators, racking, aerospace transportation, marine appliances, solar applications and many others.
