Roll forming, also spelledrollforming, is a continuous bending operation in which a long strip of metal (typically coiledsteel) is passed through consecutive sets of rolls, orstands, each performing only an incremental part of the bend, until the desired cross-section profile is obtained. Roll forming is ideal for producing parts with long lengths or in large quantities.
Advantages of Roll Forming Machines: Roll forming has many cost advantages over brake forming and preformed panels. If you are not familiar with what roll forming can do for your bottom line, here are just a few of the savings you can expect...
No Expensive Shipping and Crating of Long Panels (Have coils delivered right to your shop or jobsite)
No Panel Shipping Damage and Extensive Delays (Just try to order one replacement panel from the factory)
Less Labor and Waste (Run your panels to the exact length without time and material waste)
Work On Your Own Schedule - Not The Factory's (When roof is ready -- just run your panels)
Form Perfect Panels To Any Length (Form long panels at the site or on the roof without crating problems)
