Metal Roll Forming

Time to Read: 1m 59s

Metal Roll Forming is a metal fabrication technique for processing sheet metal through a series of rollers that bend the metal into the profile desired. The process, while simplistic in design, can provide an extensive range of geometric possibilities for products that have a consistent cross-section along their length. Roll Formed metal pieces are generally lighter weight than similar pieces that are formed by extrusion or other metal fabrication processes. Due to the metal being work hardened in a cold state, it is possible to achieve thin walls that offer consistent strength and durability. The roll forming process is energy efficient and can streamline manufacturing operations with its capacity to process materials that are pre-finished or even painted.
