What is ridge cap?

A ridge cap is a building material that is installed along the ridge line of a sloped roof. A traditional gabled roof on a home is made up of two sloped sides that meet in the middle. The point where these two sides meet forms the apex of the roof, and is known as the ridge or ridge line. A ridge cap fits over the joint between these two edges to keep rain and snow out of the home. It also helps to finish off the look of the roof by creating a tightly sealed joint along the two sides. Now in the market as far as I know, there are two types: bending type ridge cap and round wave type ridge cap. So for making ridge cap machine there will be two types too. Here are some picture for your reference:

The the following pictures is about round metal ridge cap.

How the metal round ridge cap is made by machine?

Same as other roll forming machines, this machine principle is also roll forming. From decoiler to runout table, it processes by several parts.  But this  roll  forming  machine  is  the  special  high  speed  roll  forming  machine  for  steel sheet cold-form  industries.  It can continuous  form  the  steel  sheet  according  to customer’ s  requirement,  automatically  cut  to  length.  This equipment has many advantages,  just  like  high  forming  speed,  low  noise,  stable  transmission,  easy  operation, good look and so on.Here is one machine of the machine for your reference:

And for the bending type ridge cap, we need to roll forming the raw material to the type you need and then bend it to the degree you need. By this way, we can make it like a ridge cap , here is one pictures for your reference.
