Roll forming is a high-volume production process used to produce an unlimited variety of formable cross-sections. Part of the Fundamental Manufacturing Processes Video Seriesthis programandnbsp;provides detailed information onandnbsp;roll forming dimensional tolerances, material straightness, camber, curve, bowandnbsp;and twist, roll form tooling, and roll forming machines.
The roll form tooling segment examines the design and manufacture of roll form tooling and looks specifically at the number of forming passes, material width, the flower design, roll material, and split rolls.
The roll forming machines segment explores outboard spindle support, single-duty machines, conventional machines, side-by-side machines, double head machines, rafted machines, drive mechanisms, and the use of lubricants.
