Processing machinery throughout the automation world has always been founded on innovation and growth. The traditional roller machine has been slow to adopt change and relied heavily on the craftsmanship in metal roll design. Todays roll forming companies have started to introduce new advancements and complexities, as found in the sandwich panel machine.
Roll Former Technology
Over the past decade roll forming machine technology has made significant advancements. Roll forming equipment machine manufactures have been challenged both to create more complex profile tooling and reduce costs. This challenge has been met by a number of machinery manufacturing companies with new innovative roll former technologies. The wire forming industry has also seen similar changes and challenges in cost/complexity demands. The utilization of CNC technologies in many applications has demonstrated the willingness of the rollforming industry to adopt new techniques and systems.
