There are no specific or standard equipment to list because all the machinery are designed and built exactly according to clients’ required specifications. More at PRODUCTS.
What materials are your rolling tools made of?
We have two brands for our roll forming equipment, MTC® and MAXON®. Roll forming machines under MTC® are designed to handle with max. material thickness below 1.4mm, and optimal 45# grade steel will be used to make roll forming tools, and when we produce roll forming equipment by MTC for min. material thickness over 1.4mm, we will apply Gcr15 bearing steel for the manufacturing of roll forming tools.
What treatment will you make on the rolling tools?
MTC designs and produces each every components of our roll forming machinery and insulated sandwich panel production line with 100% efforts and energy to make sure each part on the equipment can work at perfect conditions. All the rolling tools will be made through rough machining, fine machining, mirror polishing treatment, heating treatment (tempering and quenching), and surface coated with hard chrome; some rollers will have extra blackening treatment.
Do you have any certificates for your products?
Actually barely is there any equipment we produced a standard equipment, and almost each every part on the machinery are customized, excluding electrical components, therefore we applied and were approved with CE certificate for European markets and the electrical motors also have respective required standards for some regions or areas, like UL and CSA certificate for US and Canada.
What materials does your equipment handle with?
A cold roll former is designed to form various bending shapes from metal, almost any metals can be handled by our machine,like copper, aluminum, stainless steel, hot-dipped galvanized steel, cold-rolled steel, prepainted steel, coating steel etc; on our insulated sandwich panel production lines, there are insulated materials will be handled as well, like EPS/XPS block, Rockwool strips and Polyurethane (PU) foam etc.
We don’t have a drawing and can you quote on standard profiles?
Frankly all our cold roll forming machines and insulated sandwich panel production lines will have to be designed based on technical drawings of final products, which means if a client has a firm order or real needs of the machine, he or she definitely has a drawing. After receiving the drawing and client’s company information (which is recorded for further follow-up), we will make a detailed specific quotation sheets; while there are some clients who have plan to make some investment, and only want to compare price and machine specifications first, to these clients we only make a rough quotation, including business terms and basic machine configuration.
What is your payment terms?
We require 30% advance payment by bank transfer (or by cash if you want) to design the machine, and balance payment has to be made before shipping. Please contact us for details.
What electricity supply does your machine need?
In China the standard industry electricity is 380V, so in order to make trial running test before shipping, all our machines are made to 380V, 50/60HZ and 3Phase standards, and in any case you have different electricity in your country, please make sure to prepare a transformer at your end. Capacity of the transformer shall be subject to the machine you order.
How long does it take to get roll forming equipment manufactured and shipped?
Our standard production time is normally 45-60 working days from the date the deposit is received, but sometimes clients may change minds on the technical drawings provided, and it shall take time to negotiate. And for some sophisticated equipment or heavy-gague machine, like a highway guardrail roll forming machine generally requires at least 60 working days, therefore the exact shipping date shall be confirmed before the designing f machine.
How do you pack and transport the machine?
We load our equipment to 20ft OR 40ft containers (some equipment may require special container) with nude packing. Some auxiliary equipment are put in a plywood case and loaded in LCL.
Do you provide installation and commissioning service?
Yes, we will send technicians or engineers to buyer’s end if requested for the installation, commissioning and training service as soon as equipment has arrived. Before our technicians or engineers arrive at your place, please make sure to make raw materials ready, flooring base ready, electricity ready, hydraulic oil ready and your own operators ready.
What maintainance shall be made for the roll forming machine I purchased?
