Steel pipes or tubes made by roll forming machines have a variety of industrial applications, like rainwater downpipes, electric conduits or wiring ducting pipes and octangon tubes etc.

MAXON® has been always developing roll forming machines for producing various steel pipes from galvanized steel, pre-painted steel or Aluminum, and the most common pipe machines are like rainwater downspout roll forming machines, Oval pipe roll forming machines, octangon pipe roll forming machines etc.

Oval Pipe Roll Forming Machine

This oval pipe roll forming machine is technically capable to manufacture steel pipes in oval shape continuously as per fixed cutting lengths, and the pipes produced from galvanised steel are applied as electric conduits.

Octagon Pipe Roll Forming Machine

An octagon pipe roll forming machine has always been designed for producing the octagonal axes of roundel for rolling shutter doors consits of steel slats or metal sheet panels.

20161222163528_36729As an auxiliary equipment to rolling shutter door roll forming machines, the octagon pipe roll forming machine is not required as often as a slat or panel roll forming machine is, but it’s a necessary roll forming machine because all rolling shutter doors have to be pushed up or pulled down along the roundel, and the axe (octagon/octagonal pipe) is the core component on a roundel.

p_160324_06899The raw materials for octagon pipe usually are galvanized steel or cold rolled steel of thicikness 0.4-0.8mm and the widths depend on the required octagonal pipes or tubes that is used as the axes of rolling shutter roundels.

An octagon pipe roll forming machine usually consists of a manual decoiler, a pressing unit for holes, a roll forming unit, a cutting unit, control unit, and transmission unit. It can be running both automatically and manually under the PLC computer control system.
