What is Roll Forming Machine

Roll forming Machine is a continuous Sheet metal forming process where in the flat metal coil strip is passed between successive pairs of roller i,e Top/Bottom or even side rollers in order to get the desired cross section.

How Roll Forming Machine Work

Roll forming Machine is a continuous process for forming sheet, strip or coiled metal stock into long shapes of basically uniform cross-section. The material is fed through multiple pairs of contoured forming rolls, which progressively shape the metal until the desired cross section is produced. Roll forming finds wide application in real estate, building, construction, office furniture appliance and many more. A Roll Forming Machine can be formed any type of ferrous and non-ferrous material. MS and aluminum are the most common materials used in the roll forming machine process. Stock to be roll formed post-cut afterwards to a specified dimension, with the latter being most common. The more productive post-cut method typically involves a stock de coiler, a roll forming machine, a cutoff machine, and a run out table. Production speeds average 8 to 12 meters per minute. Of course, if the roll forming machine uses advanced structure and forming process design, the efficiency working speed can be higher, sometimes it can be reached at 30~40m/min.
