Common uses of rollformers
Some of the most common uses of a rollformer are the fabrication of building and construction products. The mass production of steel framing components such as studs and track are manufactured with either a portable rollformer or industrial grade line. Roll formers are also used to manufacture steel roofing and siding panels. These panels are formed with common profiles for easy use and replacement. Specialty roofing materials can also be used in the forming process.
The service and maintenance of your rollformer is critical to the overall performance. Regular check ups and parts replacement will ensure that your fabrication process is ready for 24/7 production.
