Metal Forming

Weather seal rollforming machines

Many products utilize weather seal strips as an integral part of the design.  The difficulty has always been how do you join the weather stripping with the metal framing?

Our latest rollforming advancements now mechanically crimp the weather strip with the profile.  With the introduction of the vinyl weather stripping in to the process of roll forming you can now mechanically fasten the two together.  By combining these two processes in to one machine you now have a superior mechanical bond in an uninterrupted continuous profile.   Your production capacity, efficiency and overall quality have now increased.

Benefits of a weather seal rollformer

  • Single process
  • High strength mechanical fastening
  • Endless lengths
  • Increased productivity
  • Custom design and profiles

Common applications

Some of the most common uses for inline weather seals can be found in garage doors, windows, automotive doors, hotel and office revolving doors and large utility and maintenance doorways.

Solutions for manufacturing steel drywall studs used in steel houses

Rollforming machines used for making steel productsOne of the quickest ways to manufacturing an interior wall is to use steel framing and drywall.  This combination is quick to build and requires little training.  The drywall framing  dimensions are the same as those used in the wooden stick building process and are inherently more flexible.  Scrap material is minimized and recyclable unlike wood products.

Pro’s and con’s of a job site stud rollformer

One of the first things a company that is looking to manufacturer steel building studs is to do so with a portable stud maker.  These machines are small and lightweight my nature and produce a reasonable steel stud.  Here are the basic pros and cons of such a machine.

 

Portable rollformer pros and cons
Pro Con
Speed Not the faster rollformer on the market
Flexibility Can produce what you need when you need it. Requires many manchine changes to switch over product profiles
Capabilities Low volume Not built for long term high volume product
Cost Less than industrial forming machines Ware and tare at a high rate

Industrial stud and track rollformer

Industrial stud and track machines are capable of roll forming a wide range of profile shapes with minimal interruption.  These machines can switch between stud and track with one push of the button.  Changing flange heights and web widths are also quick and easy.

Industrial roll forming machine: pros and cons
Pro Con
Speed  Very fast Requires high volume production to offset costs
Flexibility Can produce any common stud sizes in one machine
Capabilities High volume production and highly flexible profile output
Cost Expensive compared to other machines Large ROI

Prefabricated building machine

A growing market is the prefab or prefabrication market.  This is where wall production and roofing building is all done inside a factory.  The sections are “prefab’d” and sent off to the job site for assembly.  This method reduces some costs of fabrication and increase overall quality.

Pre-fab roll forming machines: pros and cons
Pro Con
Speed Slow speed
Flexibility Can produce all the components needed to assemble a steel stud drywall or roofing Requires specific architectural drawings for each steel house
Capabilities Low volume
Cost Costs can be at par with other roll forming techniques
