Roll forming is a continuous bending operation in which a strip of metal each performing only an incremental part of the bend, until the desired drawing profile is obtained.Roll forming is ideal for producing parts with long lengths or in large quantities with a minimum amount of handling as compared to other types of forming. The roll forming machine is very important in making sure that the final product is up to standards that the client needs. For some companies, they regularly update their equipment to make sure that they provide the best services. Without the best equipment, it will be hard for clients to keep bringing in more orders because of the poor work. In addition, we design the machine depends on the drawing profile. And now many drawing profiles can be produced, but each profile requires a carefully crafted set of roll tools. Design of the rolls starts with a flower pattern, which is the sequence of profile cross-sections, one for each stand of rolls. The roll contours are then derived from the profile contours. Because of the high cost of the roll sets, simulation is often used to validate the designed rolls and optimize the forming process to minimize the number of stands and material stresses in the final product. Roll forming machines are now being produced so that for similar products with only a change in part width such as stud and track profiles, a new set of profile rolls is not required. This is achieved by the mill being split along its center line and the web, flange and return sizes are set using a control panel that moves the mill rafts centrally to increase or decrease the aforementioned features.

What’s the meaning of cold roll forming machine
We are cold roll forming machines manufacturer, so let us talk about what is cold roll forming machines, why we named the machine cold roll forming machine. First let us talk about the steel material, as we known, the steel have the cold rolled and hot rolled, the cold rolled steel is just to press the cold billets and then produce the steel coils, and at the same time the hot rolled steel is to use the fire to let the billets be liquid iron and then produce the steel coils, this is two different methods to produce the steel coils. Our machines adopt the steel coils as the raw material, use the forming rollers to process the demand shapes and size product, during the process, the steel raw material is cold, without any fire to let the steel coils to be soft and liquid, we just use the rollers to press the steel plate to process the products we demand, so we named our machine colds roll forming machines. Our machines are customized, that’s to say, you let us know the shape and the size of the products you want to produce and then we can design and produce the machine for you, our machine will use the steel coils as the raw material. The products our machine can produce such as the roof tile, the floor deck, the purlin, the roller shutter lath, the stud and track as so on, if you want to open your own factory, you can let me know and then we can design the machine for you.
