Garage Door Roll FormerOne of the most common uses of a rollformer is in the manufacturing of garage doors and tracks.  These widely used construction materials are well suited for the automated processed used in metal forming.  There are several styles of doors that can be manufactured this way along with the roller tracked used on the door system.

Rollforming Residential Garage Doors

The common overhead garage door found on many homes is well suited for roll forming.  Simple profile designs can be manufactured quickly and accurately.  The roll tooling and number of stands to form a common ribbed profile is much lower than those of other systems.  The installation of a garage door and track system relies on the simple design of the profile.  This requirement is solved through innovative roll tooling and forming processes.

Commercial Garage Door Roll Former

Like the standard overhead door commercial garage doors require similar forming requirements.  The major difference is the material gauge and type tends to be heavier duty for these industrial applications.  Roller doors like those found on storage units can take a lot of abuse.  In order to manufacture this type of door a roll forming machine must be engineered to handle the heavier gauge material.
