On roll forming machines, rolling wheels, rolling axes, and bearings are damageable parts. The life of these damageable parts is related to the raw materials and processing methods used by the equipment manufacturers when they were making the equipment, the thickness and hardness of the raw materials pressed during use, and the daily workload.
But no matter what, the roll forming machine will always be worn after a long time of use, resulting in insufficient precision of the rolled profiles, failing to meet the technological standards, or indentations on the surface. Then, when this happens, the rolling wheels must be replaced. Below we introduce the replacement plan and some problems that may be encountered for your reference.
Let the original equipment manufacturer process this solution, it should be said to be the best solution among all the solutions. Because the equipment is produced by the manufacturer, the drawings are archived in their factory, as well as other functions and performances of the equipment, and what should be paid attention to, they are very clear.
Moreover, their factory is fully equipped, the workers are skilled in the processing of wheels, and the supporting processing chain in the location of the equipment factory is complete. After they have finished processing, they can send debugging personnel to your company to help with installation and debugging, so that you don't have to trouble yourself.
When the original factory cannot be processed for some reason, other manufacturers of rolling forming machines can be found for processing. Provide the rolling wheel drawings that came with the previous machine to the manufacturer, and let them process it on their behalf.
If the drawings have been lost, it will be quite troublesome, which requires sending factory personnel to measure various parameters before they can produce drawings for processing, or send the old machine to the factory, so that they can process the rolling wheels, and complete the installation and debugging.
In this way, the total cost of each item will be very high. If it is not necessary, it may be a better choice to directly order a new machine. In another situation, other factories may not be willing to order a separate set of roll forming wheels for you, because many parameters are inconsistent with the parameters of their own production equipment, to give you a separate redesign, and there is not much profit for roll forming machine manufacturers, so few manufacturers will make a separate set of roll forming wheels for you.
In the above two cases can not be achieved, it is necessary to consider their own processing. The premise is that you can find an excellent roller design professional to design a set of rolling wheels for you, and you must come to the door to measure various parameters before you can start drawing. If the measurement is not accurate, or the designer is unqualified, the processed wheel may be void.
There is generally no supporting processing in your location, because a set of rolling wheels needs to be processed through many procedures, such as: rough turning, quenching, hardening, finishing, chrome plating and other procedures. Moreover, this program is relatively risky.
