Roll forming machines are fed long strips of metal that are passed through consecutive sets of rolls that will bend at specific increments until the desired shape is obtained. They usually operate at speeds between 30-600 feet per minute at a continuous cycle. This makes them an ideal choice for high volume manufacturing facilities. These machines perform bends at room temperature (cold rolling) with several stations in the machine to guide the material and make the specific bends at each point. Each point will bend the material a certain amount and then proceed to the next until it is finished. This type of bending process allows for cross-sectional configuration. The roll forming machines create accurate and clean bends that require little finishing touches.
Most roll forming machines will have the ability to use computer programs to assist in the process. CAD systems will be a big benefit to machine operators and ensure that the highest level of productivity is achieved. CAD and CAM systems will minimize the waste of materials as well. There are even some roll forming machines that have TIF welding capabilities as well as some that have laser capabilities.
