Highway Guardrail Roll Forming Machine

A highway guardrail roll forming machine has been designed for producing 2 waves guard rails or crash barriers like w shaped beams that play safety feature on highway or expressway. And also there is a 3 wave highway guardrail roll forming machine which produces another shapes profiles.

MTC has been experience in the designing and building of highway guardrail roll forming machine. In addidtionit can design a highway guardrail roll fomring machine for making both 2 wave or w beams guard rails or crash barriers, and 3 wave or three beam crash barriers as well.  

Highway Guardrail Applications

Highway guard rails are placed on the road side in order to prevent or decrease the loss caused by traffic accidents. Crash barriers or highway guard rails, known also as traffic barriers, are so important that every each country will use them when building a highway. Therefore, a highway guardrail roll forming machine shall worth our time to know.

In traffic engineering, highway guardrail may prevent an errant vehicle from impacting roadside obstacles which may be either man-made (sign structures, culvert inlets, utility poles) or natural (trees, rock croppings), running off the road and going down a steep embankment, or veering off the roadway into oncoming traffic (commonly referred to as a median barrier).

In most of time, people use 10 gauge high-tensile galvanized steel (some with colour painted) to produce highway guardrails!

At begining, there are only 2-wave or w shaped beams with a two-rib corrugated design (with two secondary ribs). While in some other occassions, people must develop higer-tensile crash barriers with higher strength, and then we have 3 wave highway guardrails now.

Running Test of W Beam Highway Guardrail Roll Forming Machine

This roll forming machine highway guardrail by PLC control was customised for our customer from Indonesia for automatically manufacturing W shaped guardrail or crash barriers produce guardrails from galvanized steel of 482mm width and 2-3.2mm thickness.  

This whole guardrail roll forming machine highway consists of a 10TON hydraulic decoiler with a coil car (Standard 5TON manual decoiler), feeding guide, levellor, hydraulic punching equipment, roll forming system,gearbox and universal joint shafts transmission system,hydraulic cutter,PLC control cabinet,hydraulic oil pump and runout tables.

Brief Introduction of Highway Guardrail Roll Forming Machine

Different countries may have different standards for high guard rails, however only minor changes on shapes or profile dimensions indicates, therefore, all the 2 wave or w beam highway guardrail roll forming machines have very much the same functions, and working process.

Also, there are different transmission systems optional for a highway guardrail roll forming machine in the market.  An economical guardrail machine usually applies chain-sprokets transmission system!  This kind of transmission system is only for the production of 2mm-thick crash barriers. On the other hand, Gear-boxes plus universal joint-shafts transmission system is installed on a standard roll former for thickness from 2-4mm.

Last but not the least, different roll forming structures are optional for different highway guardrail roll forming machine. For example, Integrated forming stands deals with materials thickness from 2-3mm, while Separate forming stands deals with materials thickness from 2-4mm.

“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.
