What is metal roll forming?
Metal roll forming may not be as simple as you think; the machine can have a variety of sizes, product outputs, uses, speeds, etc. Before buying, please make sure you understand the background and importance of metal roll forming in today's industry.
Whether you notice it or not, products made using the process of metal roll forming are everywhere. Items could include something as visible as metal roofing or garage doors, or products working behind the scenes, like pipes, window and door frames, and countless others.
However, how much do you know about the equipment used in metal roll forming and everything it can produce?
With over 15 years designing and producing metal roll forming equipment, GEIT GROUP knows the importance of education on how metal roll forming began and why it’s still so important to this day, especially if you work in the metal fabrication industry.
Then, what is metal roll forming?
According to Metal Construction Association (MCA), metal roll forming is defined as:
“A continuous bending operation in which a strip of metal, typically coiled steel or aluminum, is passed through consecutive sets of rolls, or stands, each performing only an incremental part of the bend until the desired cross-section profile is obtained. Portable roll forming is ideal for producing parts with long lengths or in large quantities and are designed so they can be moved easily to various locations or job sites.”
In other words, it’s the process of feeding metal, whether it’s finished, coiled, flat, or otherwise, through a series of rollers where each roller station further manipulates the piece of metal into the desired shape.
