Nowadays, the automation technology of roll forming machines is quite high, so it is inevitable to integrate many auxiliary technologies into the complete set of roll forming production lines, which can greatly improve production efficiency, reduce labor costs, and reduce a lot of indirect operating costs.
In the past, for the complex forming technology, many processing technologies are involved. In this way, the inventory should go back and forth, and the transportation would be repeated many times, which requires a lot of manpower to complete, and also requires a large space to satisfy the business need.
Therefore, now manufacturers of large-scale roll forming profile generally purchase roll forming machines that integrate multiple technologies. Although the equipment procurement cost has increased exponentially, it can improve the utilization of the site, reduce the number of workers, reduce the labor intensity of workers and can also greatly improve production efficiency and create more competitive advantages for enterprises. Below, we introduce the common auxiliary technologies of the roll forming machine.
This is a technology that is used in most profiles. Many profiles will be punched, and it is not complicated to integrate the punching technology on the roll forming machine. Therefore, the punching technology is very common.
On the roll forming machine, shearing is definitely a required technology. Cutting is carried out after forming, during forming or before forming. The punching notch (gap) is also a technology that is used on many forming machines.
The welding technology is generally used after forming, and a set of welding machines are installed on the cutting machine of the roll forming machine, including laser welding, sub-argon arc welding and so on.
To emboss some decorative patterns on the formed profiles, or emboss the company's unique logo, it is necessary to use embossing or knurling technology.
This technology is generally used after forming. Printing on profiles with auxiliary printing equipment, such as product model, production date, company name, etc., can be done using this technology.
The above mentioned are the most common auxiliary technologies, and other less common auxiliary technologies are: expansion, flanging, slitting, punching louver holes, bending, partial punching, beveling, slitting, buckle latch, gluing, painting, foaming, etc.
In fact, as far as the current production technology of roll forming machine is concerned, most profiles can be produced in one set, integrating all auxiliary technologies. As long as the company is strong and the customer is willing to invest, theoretically a highly integrated roll forming production line can be established.
