American Sheet Metal Equipment manufactures a wide variety of heavy duty Independent Stand Rollformers that provide easy access for roll tooling, setups and maintenance. The Independent Stand is primarily used for Wide Panel Applications requiring Ribs and Corrugations to be formed across the width of the Panels. The individual outboard stands can be removed on the non-drive side giving full access to the top and bottom spindles and rolls on that station. Independent Outboard Stands support spindles and allow access to heavy, large diameter roll tooling.
When a wide panel or part profile incorporates ribs, embossing or corrugations across the width the profile or the forming requires heavy large diameter form rolls an Independent Stand Rollformer system is the preferred application. The Independent Stands support the Spindles and Roll Tooling on the non-drive side of the Rollformer. The Stands are designed to be removable to expose the ends of the Roll Tooling Spindles for easy access to the roll tooling.
With the Outboard Independent Stand removed, you have easy access to the Roll Tooling for maintenance or modification to the profile. The drive side of the Rollformer is designed to support and hold each pair of spindles in place once the stands are removed. The drive side also retains the alignment of the roll shafts and tooling as well as support the station to station gear drive throughout the Rollformer.
