Cold Rollforming

Rollforming is one of the most versatile and productive manufacturing methods ever devised for forming metal.

The process takes the form of a continuous bending operation in which a long strip of coiled metal passes through a series of contoured rolls, progressively forming the metal to achieve the desired cross-section profile.

  • Ideal for constant-profile parts with long lengths and in large quantities
  • High degree of consistency and accuracy
  • Suitable for a wide range of metals
  • Custom product design and manufacture
  • Effective solutions to complex challenges

Our rollformed profiles can offer a number of advantages over extrusions, including significant savings in weight and increased strength (having been work hardened in a cold state). In addition, the rollforming process is more rapid and takes less energy than extrusion.

One of our key strengths is the ability to translate complex requirements into high quality, effective solutions and our pioneering use of advanced software enables more efficient product development and faster production

Our custom rollforming service combines our engineering capabilities and technological expertise, opening the door to new possibilities in terms of cross-section profiles. We can work with you to develop the most appropriate production solutions for your application, reducing design and manufacturing time.

  • Materials up to 8mm thick, up to 1.3m wide
  • Wide range of geometric possibilities
  • Tolerances as low as ±0.15mm
  • Suitable for ferrous, nonferrous, stainless steel and other malable metals
  • Ability to form materials with polished surfaces and pre-coated materials
  • In-line features including hole punching, notching, embossing and cut to length
  • In-line welding enables enclosed shapes
