Interchangeable W & Thrie Beam Guardrail Roll Forming Machine

This Interchangeable W & Thrie Beam Guardrail Roll Forming Machine are commonly required when customers need to produce w beam and thrie beam or 2 wave and 3 wave crash barriers. It is known to buyers of highway guardrail roll forming machine, that 2 wave guardrails and 3 wave guardrails are the main components as the safety parts installed on the road sides of highways or expressways, and most of time two separate highway guardrail machines are required to produce 2 wave and 3 wave or thrie beam crash barriers.
It’s such a big project that investors or contractors have to rack their brains over comparison, analysis, and making decisions to buy 1 machine or 2 machines.

As a matter of fact, in a highway or expressway construction, the usage ratio of 2 wave or w beam crash barriers and 3 wave or thrie beam crash barriers is about 100:1, which means that every 100 pieces of 2 wave crash barriers are used, only 1 piece of 3 wave crash barrier will be installed.

Therefore, except for a tycoon or group company, there is no need to purchase two separate crash barrier roll forming machines.
In order to cure the headache of buying or not buying two machines, roll forming engineers created an Interchangeable W & Thrie Beam Guardrail Roll Forming Machine that could produce both 2 beam crash barriers, and 3 wave or thrie beam crash barriers on one machine.

Brief Introduction of Interchangeable W & Thrie Beam Guardrail Roll Forming Machine

Compared to purchasing a w beam highway guardrail roll forming machine, and a thrie beam or 3 wave crash barrier roll forming machine, it’s more cost effective to buy a 2&3 wave guardrail interchangeable roll forming machine for 2 wave or w beams and thrie beam or 3 wave crash barriers.

An Interchangeable W & Thrie Beam Guardrail Roll Forming Machine takes smaller working areas than placing two separate machines in manufacturing facility, and less operators for one machine than two. It’s esay to switch or make change between W beam and 3 wave or Thrie Beam. The last few roll forming stations of the equipment will be adjusted or diseffective, and also the cutting dies shall be changed for producing different guard rails (w beam or 3 wave).

As a coil has two sides, and there is also a black side (the only black side) on this interchangeable crash barrier roll forming machine. As long as any breakdown occurs or in case the machine needs trouble shooting, the production has to stop, which means clients can’t make production of W beam guardrails and 3 Wave or Thrie beam guardrails neither.

“You’ve made such a great roll forming equipment that helps me complete my projects so much faster and easier. ”

We make things easy for projects.

Roll forming machine usually is always our first choice as long as we need to produce metal sheet or steel section products. A roll forming machine can do automatic jobs of bending, cutting, pressing for holes and slots, and straightening etc.

Roll forming machines have so many advantages over press brake and shearing machines! With rollforming equipment, we can save much more time, working area, money as well as labors.

There are numourous applications where we need a roll forming machine. For example, we need roll forming machines to produce metal roofing and wall/siding. We must use decking roll forming machines to produce metal or steel decking for roofing and floor. Guardrail roll forming machines are used for producing crash barriers or guard rails on highway construction. Besides, we can find in the markets c/z steel purlin roll forming machines, top hat purlin roll formers; stud and track roll former for light weight steel buildings; down pipe roll forming machines and roll forming machines for door products etc.

Related Highway Guardrail Roll Formers

crash barrier roll forming machine produces w shaped guardrails with 2 wave or 3 waves (thrie beams) placed on both sides of highway or expressway. Typically one crash barrier roll forming machine produces only 1 type of guide rail. However, MTC can make 2 wave and 3 wave interchangeable crash barrier roll forming machine which produces both 2 wave and 3 wave guard rails on the same machine.
