Metal step roof tiles produced by glazed tile roll forming machine from high quality prepainted sheets most time apply as roofing on Villas or some residential buildings. 

There is only one but key difference between a metal glazed roof tile and a regular metal roof panel: Steps! Generally speaking, a regular metal roof panel with steps is called a metal glazed roof tile! Therefore the key difference between a regular metal roof panel roll forming machine and a metal glazed tile roll forming machine lies at this situation that there is an extra hydraulic pressing equipment on a step tile roll forming machine to press steps on the roll formed roof panels.

Machine designers always build the hydraulic pressing between roll forming part and hydraulic cutter so that the depth, distance and quantities of steps can be adjustable and clients can change any time throught the touch screen on PLC control box.

Brief Introduction of the Glazed Tile Roll Forming Machine:

details
Hydraulic pressing and cutting on a glazed tile roll forming machine

It’s true to name a regular metal roof panel with steps glazed roof tile roll forming machine, but not all the metal roof panels can be pressed with steps. It means we can press steps just on certain metal roof panels, and that often makes a step tile roll forming machine looks different from a regular roof panel roll forming machine.

Most of time, a glazed tile roll forming machine has more roll forming stations and rolling tools than a regular roof panel roll forming machine does, and an extra hydraulic pressing equipment also contributes a higher price compared to a regular metal roofing sheet roll forming machine.

Generally,  a glazed tile roll forming machine consists of a manual decoiler, feeding guide, film coating device, roll forming system, transmission system, control system, hydraulic system, hydraulic pressing, hydraulic cutting and runout tables. Besides,  it can also includes a hydraulic decoiler and an auto stacking machine sometimes as per request.
