In metal roofing industry,there are so many roll forming manufacturing equipment we cannot neglect. One among these roll formers is trapezoidal roof panel roll forming machine that makes metal roof panels without ribs.

Trapezoidal roof panels are the most popular metal roofing for both residential buildings and commercial buildings. The metal roof panels with trapezoidal shape have bigger wave height, and it’s similar to IBR roofing sheets (More at IBR sheet roll forming machine). There are ribs in IBR roofing sheets, but none ribs seats in Trapezoidal roofing sheets. The metal roof panels without ribs are  typically known as trapezoial sheets. For the panels with ribs, there are many different names. Popular roofing with ribs are IBR sheet, IDT roof panel, R101 panel, PBR panel or R-panel and so on. Trapezoial roof panels are popular all accoress the world, while other sheets have local prefered customers.

Since their products are welcome in specific regions or areas, these manufacturing equipment have their popularity in same markets. Trapezoidal roof panel roll forming machine, corrugated sheet roll forming machine and glazed tile roll forming machine are popular all over the world. However, IBR sheet roll forming machine and IDT sheet roll forming machine are welcome only in African markets. PBR Panel roll former or R-Panel roll former enjoys preference only in American markets. Despite the final products or raw materials may vary with each other, these metal roofing roll forming equipment have similar technical speciciations.

An R-panel or PBR panel roll former rolls materials 22-28 gague and trapezoidal roof panel machine does 0.3-0.8mm thickness. Motor power, hydraulic power and forming stations on both roll formers are also similar, although there are some profiles for special usage, or from special materials, like stainless steel. Both R-panel or PBR panel and Trapezoidal sheet can apply as both roofing and wall siding panel. Regardless of the application, the panels can be made of PPGI, PPGA,GI,GA or Aluminum etc.


An R-panel roll former or PBR panel roll former has similar basic technical parameters as a trapezoidal panel machine.
