Roll forming is a cost-effective method of making metal parts. The main raw materials are aluminum, stainless steel, etc. In today’s highly competitive market, you must have rugged equipment that consistently delivers quality products. If you’re thinking about forming a roll into a part of a product, here are a few things to consider.
Cost of the machine
Typically, roll forming machines will have a seasonal or daily fee, which may include electricity, maintenance, etc. It’s important to be aware of the cost of running roll form machine, as it will affect your budget and operational capabilities. Only when operating costs are lower, companies have opportunity to grow their business.
Metal roll forming allows you to integrate auxiliary operations such as punching and trimming into an effective forming operation. In the long run, this will reduce your production time.
The stable and continuous production of high-precision rolling parts is derived from professional engineering design. Our engineering team will carefully study your technical requirements and develop a production plan based on your needs. Save your time and money with a timely and accurate production plan.
The precision of the machine
Roll forming machinery may require different precision under different working conditions. For best results, a good roll forming machine should have an precision of 0.01 mm or higher.
Typically, on a roller press, the cross-sectional flange can be maintained at an angle of 0.015 (1/64) and the angle can be maintained in the range of 2 or less.
Availability of machine parts
Steel roll forming machine may experience technical failures during normal service life. Therefore, it is very important that the parts of the machine are easy to buy on the market. Older steel roll forming machine may continue to produce, but you must ensure that the metal forming machine manufacturers is still selling parts. So when choosing to buy a machine, you should choose a large and suitable supplier.
According to various factors, each standing seam roll forming machine has a recommended service life. The longer the service life, the better the performance of the machine.
Regular maintenance and replacement procedures increase the life of the roller. As long as it is not used improperly, even in very old machines, the cost of repairs can be neglected. As the roll forming machines continues to improve in accuracy, the basic design has not changed significantly.
Gihua are “All-in-house source” – from raw material to the final high-precision forming machine. Our own tooling center is equipped with CNC turning-lathes, Grinding machine for roller shaft, Heavy planning machine, etc. which allow us to complete the majority of our processing procedures on-site. So we can better control the machine quality and delivery time of machines.
