Advantages of Roll Forming A Metal Part

Views: 892     Author: steelmama     Publish Time: 2024-01-05      Origin: roofing sheet machine


There are several advantages of using roll forming for your projects:

  • The corrugated roof roll forming process allows operations such as punching, notching, and welding to be performed in-line. Labor cost and time for secondary operations are reduced or eliminated, reducing part costs.

  • Trapezoidal metal roof roll form tooling allows for a high degree of flexibility. A single set of roll form tools will make almost any length of the same cross-section. Multiple sets of tools for varying length  parts are not required.

  • It can provide better dimensional control than other competing metal forming processes.

  • Repeatability is inherent in the process, allowing easier assembly of roof panel glazed tile roll formed parts into your finished product, and minimizing problems due to “standard” tolerance build up.

  • Standing seam roll forming is typically a higher speed process.

  • Roll forming offers customers a superior surface finish. This makes roll forming an excellent option for decorative stainless steel parts or for parts requiring a finish such as anodizing or powder coating. Also, texture or pattern can be rolled into the surface during forming.

  • Metal roof ridge cap roll forming utilizes material more efficiently than other competing processes.

  • Deck floor roll formed shapes can be developed with thinner walls than competing processes.

There are two common roll forming techniques with variations:

1.Pre-cut or cut-to-length roll forming

  • Strips are pre-cut and processed, then fed into the roll former as individual strips. These strips may be cut from a coil or sheet.

  • Processing may include piercing, notching, embossing.

  • Typically used for low-production parts or parts with certain types of notches.

2.Post-cut roll forming

  • Pieces of the cross section are cut to length after forming. This process involves working from a coil of material.

  • A strip can be pierced, notched, or further processed before the cutoff operation.

  • The cut-off system moves with the strip and can add other features.
