A drywall stud and track roll forming machine has been designed for the automatic manufacturing of metal c stud or u track continuously for light gauge or lightweight steel building systems.

Thin sheets of galvanized steel can be cold formed into steel studs for use as a structural or non structural building material for both external and partition walls in both residential, commercial and industrial construction projects (pictured)- by Wikipedia.

In modern buildings, people tend to use steel because steel is lightweight, recyclable, costs less money and time, compared to traditional clays, stones or bricks. In a lightweight or light gauge steel building, most of building materials are made of steel, and most of these steel building materials are manufactured by roll forming machines, one of which is drywall stud and track roll forming machine that has been designed for the continuous and automatic production of metal c stud and u tracks applied for both exterior and partition walls in both individual and industrial buildings.

Metal c stud and u tracks are great inventions in steel building projects, and that makes drywall stud and track roll forming machine, or even all the lightweight or light gauge steel frame roll forming machines highly popular in the international. There are many international leading manufacturers of roll forming machines ( like HOWICK, FRAMECAD,SCOTTSDALE and DALLAN etc) whose primary products are steel frame roll forming machines.

Due to the technology monopoly, there are rarely Chinese manufacturers can provide steel framing solutions for lightweight or light gauge steel buildings, but for a drywall stud and track roll forming machine production, Chinese manufacturers are no-doubt reliable.

A drywall stud and track roll forming machine usually consists of manual decoiler, a feeding guide unit, a punching tool, a roll forming unit, a cutting unit, a transimission unit, a hydraulic unit, a control unit, and runout tables. Under PLC control system, this drywall stud and track roll forming machine fully automatically produces 4-6 metal c studs or u tracks out of galvanized steel of 0.6-1.2mm thickness from punching, roll forming and cutting.
