Roll forming applications

Roll Forming in the Automotive Industry

Established in 2012, MTC Industrial Co., LTD is a roll forming machine manufacturer in Shanghai, China, that provides turnkey solutions for roll forming equipment and insulated sandwich panel production lines. In addition to our main products, we also produce some auxiliary equipment. MTC uses cutting-edge modeling applications such as COPRA®, AUTOCAD, and SOLIDWORKS to ensure the precision of the forming rollers. MTC has its rough machining and CNC fine machining workshop. Roll forming application in automotive! The rolling tools are then sent out for heat treatment and chrome coating to ensure that the rollers are hard and smooth enough to prevent cracks or dents on the finished products. MTC places a high value on machining since rolling tools are the most critical component of roll forming machines.

MTC has been designing and developing technologies for roll forming and insulated panes production lines, including pressing embossed patterns, slitting, punching for holes, insulation materials laminating, and auto stacking. MTC manufactures metal roofs, guide rails, steel door components, wall cladding, decking sheets, and custom profiles using cold roll forming machines or cold roll formers, as well as sandwich panel assembly lines for wall panels and insulated metal roofing.

The Process

The roll forming process involves moving sheet metal through a series of rollers, each of which gives the metal shape. The rolls are used in tandem to create the desired cross-section. Roll formation is a perfect way to accurately manufacture large quantities of metal parts because the procedure is reliable and simple to replicate. Roll formation produces excellent results for nonferrous, ferrous, cold rolled, hot rolled, plated, coated, or pre-painted metals.

Roll Forming Machines

MTC has designed and manufactured roll forming machines for wall cladding, roofing sheets, metal decking, steel purlins, guard rails, steel windows, lightweight steel frames, and steel pipes, door components, and a variety of other custom profiles. The benefits of roll forming machines over press brakes and shearing machines are numerous. We can save time, space, money, and labor by using roll-forming equipment.

Metal sheet roll forming machines are commonly used to make metal roofing and wall cladding sheets. IBR Sheet Roll Forming Machine, Corrugated Sheet Roll Forming Machine, Double Layer Roll Forming Machine, Glazed Tile Roll Forming Machine, and Trapezoidal Sheet Roll Forming Machine are some of the metal sheet forming machines supplied by MTC.

Cold Roll Forming

A cold roll former is a metal roll forming machine that can continuously produce metal profiles, generally from steel coils. Besides, the cold roll former line performs additional operations on the line, such as cutting, embossing, punching, and label printing. Cold-rolled steel is more durable and prevents the additional costs of time and materials used to heat and cool the metal. MTC has been manufacturing and delivering a wide range of cold roll formers and has numerous applications from automobiles to planes, appliances, and houses.

Currently, roll forming applications are needed in almost every metal-based industry and are critical to success. Automobile, transportation, decoration, steel building industry, storage industry, and traffic industries are only a few examples.

Roll Forming Application in Automotive Industry

In recent years, the automotive industry has placed a strong emphasis on weight reduction to satisfy legal CO2 pollution and fuel consumption criteria. Roll forming technology can aid in weight and cost reduction simultaneously. The roll forming has played an increasingly important role in the automotive industry in recent years, producing parts that were previously stamped. Bumper beams and door frame parts are manufactured using this method in the automotive industry. For a long time, rotary spot welding was the favored method for producing bumper beams. Most roll-forming lines now use high-frequency welders to manufacture custom welded tubes.

Automotive Parts

The roll forming method produces a variety of components for the automotive industry, including seat rails, bumper beams, crash bars (tubes), and door frames, as well as heat exchanger radiators tubes, cross sills, exhaust pipes, seat tracks, and brackets. Roll forming is commonly used to build the interior frames and skeleton of automobiles.

Roll-Formed Automotive Parts

Moreover, roll forming is also used to make train parts such as exterior roof and side panels, protective steel sill plates, wall and ceiling stiffening channels, decorative stainless steel rails, and stainless steel transition pieces. Other examples of automotive parts manufactured with roll forming are window tracks, sun visor hinges, and decorative exterior elements of the cars.

Metal Roll former manufacturer known for Accuracy, value and reliability!

Accuracy, value and reliability the three main factors that decide a metal roll former manufacturer would success or not. Roll forming can be designed to meet very solid tolerances. Products are more identical and reliable transversely runs than with press braking, facilitating accessibility in applications such as assembly line industrialized.

Roll Formers: Simple in Design and Fit in the Requirements of Majority of Fabricated Applications!

Cold Roll forming is a continual process for shaping metal into custom cross-section profiles. Compared to hot forming, cold roll forming happends under room temparature, because of which people often name roll formers for cold roll forming machine.
