Roll forming is a process of continuous shaping that makes it possible to obtain products of constant section, known as profiles, from sheet metal sheets or coil using a roll forming machine.
Following the Automation Arena debut at Labelexpo Europe 2017, 2018 marks if first appearance at a trade show in the Americas. This will also be the first time automated shrink sleeve production will be portrayed for the very first time at a trade show anywhere in the entire world.
A roll forming machine is designed to fabricate specific configurations out of long strips of metals (especially cold steel). These machines are designed with specifications for the type of rolls it will produce. It does this by bending these metals at room temperature, guided by a number of fixed stations.
