Manufacturing independence, waste management, transportation arrangement and other factors draw a compelling case for them planning to purchase roll forming machine and produce their own steel products.

However, it’s never simple! Buyers must consider about extra production costs, employee training, warehouse renting or building and various transportation methods before making a decision.

Mike LEE of CHANGJIA STEEL decided it was worth it. CHANGJIA STEEL has been specialized in distribution of steel building materials and in his factory, there are various metal roll forming machines working at this moment, like glazed tile roll forming machine, metal floor deck roll forming machine, corrugated sheet roll forming machine and c/z purlin roll forming machine etc. They have so many years’ experience with the benefits from rolling their own products. “There are so many benefits for companies to purchase their own cold roll former,” Mike tells. “Just not having to depend on anyone else is a big advantage. It saves time as well as money.”

Michael Chen, the project manager with YECHAO CAIGANG, agrees, and concludes it’s about controlling what business you want to engage. “You can decide your own step and have the flexibility of what plans you are available to make! Besides, you can have that confidence to manufacture perfect products for the project you take on.” he says.

For more than 10 years, MTC (MAXON TECHNOLOGIES COMBINATIONS) has designed and built cold roll former for a variety of applications. “We design our custom equipment from raw steel and we offer about 20 standard machineries.” said Johnson Pan, the general manager of MTC. Most of all, he lists that cold roll former has many obvious advantages over brake forming and preformed panels.

Advantages of Cold Roll Former:

  • Less shipping cost and crating of long panels. Coils are delivered right to the shop or jobsite.
  • Minimize the lead time for products.
  • Less labor and waste.
  • Maximize your control on quality, and production plan.
  • Flexibility on forming panels with any length;

Cold roll forming machine can do most of the fabrication needs on the cold formed steel products fully automatically on-line. Not only roll forming, but also punching for holes or slots, cutting to length, and pressing embossed patterns etc. Therefore, lots of roofing contractors and steel building materials distributors finally decided to purchase their own cold roll formers.
