MTC is specialized in designing and building customised roll forming machines. Recently we have produced a European-quality glazed roof tile roll forming machine for our client in UK.

A glazed tile roll forming machine typically produces metal roof tile with steps out of 0.3-0.6mm thick material. Usually a regular glazed roof tile roll forming machine has integrated forming stands and chain-sprockets transimission.

However, this machine has gear-box transmission method and individual forming stands design. In addition, it has a safety cover on the machine as per customer’s request. Not only it has a better outlook with such designs, but also does it’s more stable, compared to a regular glazed roof tile roll forming machine.  According to EU policy, CE is a compulsory certificate to import roll forming machines out of Europe. Therefore, we accquired CE certificate and accordingly we build safety cover for this glazed roof tile roll forming machine.


glazed tile roll forming machine for step roofGenerally a regular glazed tile roll forming machine works at speed 0-5m/min. But, this roll forming machine can make step roofing tiles at speed up to 8m/min.

For most of projects, there is no need to use gear-box transmission step roof tile roll former.  It’s about 40% as expensive as a regular step tile roll former.  In some cases, when we have large amount orders of step tiles or metal glazed roofing tiles, we need high-speed machine to ensure the capacity and stable production.

Despite of different designs, this European-quality glazed roof tile roll forming machine has the same components as a regular metal roof tile machine does. Main components are decoiler, feeding guide, roll former, transmission unit, cutting unit, hydraulic unit, PLC control unit and exit tables.
