Roll forming is a type of rolling that involves continuously bending a long strip of sheet metal until the desired cross-section, or profile, is obtained. Roll forming is ideal for producing constant-profile parts with long lengths when large quantities are needed. Roll-formed sections have some advantages over extrusions of similar shapes:
Our Roll Forming Capabilities & Equipment
- Most roll-formed parts are much lighter, with thinner walls possible.
- Roll Formed parts are usually stronger, having been work hardened in a cold state.
- The parts can be made having a finish or already painted.
- The process of roll forming is very rapid and takes much less energy than extruding parts.
