Upgrading or Buying Roll Forming Equipment
December 28, 2016

Starting up a new facility or expanding a facility can be overwhelming. Aside from acquiring the space, you also have to set up the equipment and wiring. Let’s not forgot you have to purchase the equipment first. Whether you are starting fresh or you are growing what you already have, it’s easy to overlook the purchase of roll forming equipment. Many different tools and accessories that are involved with roll forming equipment. We have categorized all the roll forming equipment to help you compile your shopping checklist.

Roll Tooling

Coil handling and roll forming equipment can be manufactured and designed to specific requirements based on the production. Consider rollers and press dies made with standard full-hard and stainless coil, from thicknesses of .010” to 0.5”.

Piercing and cut-off dies

Piercing and cut-off dies are a staple among your arsenal of roll forming equipment. Ensure a selection of slug type, slugless type, and cam type progressive dies are at hand for standing cuts and punching. Various acceleration methods, depending on tolerance requirements, require a different combination of piercing and cut-off dies.

Refurbishing used equipment

Consider refurbishing used equipment to be economical. Upgrading or refurbishing roll forming equipment reduces downtime, resulting to overall increased production and quality.

Hydraulic units and systems

Hydraulic units and systems to upgrade your existing line capacity can be manufactured to meet the specifications of the roll forming equipment. Upgrading the existing roll forming equipment adds more functions to the manufacturing process, and can significantly grow the production line.

Controls systems

Upgrading roll forming equipment means also upgrading control systems. Existing controls improve performance and tolerance when upgraded, and brings the system up to current safety standards.

Aftermarket support

Once you have your full range of roll forming equipment and accessories designed and manufactured, it’s time to put together the support you will need after. Having professional support on hand reduces downtime with regular maintenance, inspections, and emergency repairs. Prepare a list of contacts for repair and maintenance of mechanical and tooling components, hydraulic and electrical controls, and trouble shooting.
