General Introduction:

Roll forming, also spelled rollforming, is a continuous bending operation in which a long strip of metal (typically coiled steel) 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. 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)
