This is a Rollform Line we built approximately twenty (20) years ago to produce 7 Ga. to 16 Ga. Vertical Stiffeners for the Grain Bin Industry. The System featured our Pre-Tooled Variable Width Rollformer to produce two (2) similar profiles that would nest together in a quick changeover application.

This machine was replaced for a heavier System that would also produce Stiffeners up to ¼” thick. The customer wanted it rebuilt to be used again in their new venture overseas but also wanted it upgraded with the latest Electronics, Drives, and Controls used to date.

The original Drive on the Rollformer was hydraulic and it held good accuracy throughout its years of service. Today we use Variable Frequency Motors to drive our Rollformers especially when we need to hold tight tolerances on Index Feeds.

The rebuild and modifications included building an all new Electronic Control Panel for the complete System. A new updated AMS Data Entry Controller was also added to the System. All the Hydraulic Cylinders were rebuilt or replaced and we built a new Hydraulic Power Supply for the System. All Bearings and Bushings were inspected and/or replaced. All the Dies were rebuilt and/or modified.

All of the Safety Guarding, Sensors, and Light Curtains were modified or updated to meet todays current regulations.

This equipment was originally built by Custom Rollform Products but we have rebuilt and made modifications to other types and brands of Sheet Metal Fabrication Equipment.
