For a newcomer, or a customer who is particularly price sensitive, we find that the equipment we see is almost the same, all of which are racks, rolls, motors, unwinding, cutting, etc. It seems that there is not much difference.
In fact, the big price difference is related to several aspects, just like buying a mobile phone, it is also divided into different configurations. So, because of the non-standard characteristics of the roll forming machine, what are the reasons for the price difference?
1. The price varies with the degree of automation. The higher the degree of automation, the higher the production cost. It requires a relatively long production cycle, uses more electrical components, and requires longer debugging time and higher after-sales costs. These are directly related to production costs.
2. The complexity of the forming section is different from the size and price of the forming section. Generally speaking, the more complex the forming section, the more troublesome the design, and the need for more auxiliary parts, the number of roll passes of the roll forming machine will increase a lot, and the debugging time will be longer. If the section is too large, the upper and lower rolls need to be increased exponentially, and the cost will also increase exponentially.
3. The price of the materials required to be used is different. The materials mentioned here mainly refer to the materials used for roll forming machines, punching dies, etc. For example, rolls generally use Gcr15, Cr12, Cr12mov, and even use 25# steel. Different mold materials are used according to the different steel strip materials produced, or different materials are used according to customer requirements, which directly affect the production cost of the equipment.
4. The price of electrical appliances required to be assembled is different. Electric appliances such as motors, PLCs, frequency converters, etc., differ in price for different brands.
