With roll forming services from Roller Die, your company can take advantage of an economical and efficient way of getting the metal components it needs. Our roll forming process has been perfected over many decades in the custom metal components business, allowing us to quickly produce strong metal components that are made to exact specifications.
The roll forming process works by passing sheet metal through a series of rollers, with each of these rollers adding shape to the metal as it passes through. The rolls work together to form the desired cross-section. Since the process is consistent and easy to repeat, roll forming provides a great way to produce even very high volumes of metal components.
Our roll forming services, which include aluminum roll forming, can be used to create components for a wide variety of industry settings. In addition, we operate over 90 roll machines, with spindle sizes ranging from one inch to three inches. This means that we are able to quickly handle all your roll forming needs, whatever those needs might be. We can create both standard shapes and custom jobs, both of which are produced at the highest quality levels possible.

What is Roll Forming?
Shown below is how the desired cross section is gradually formed. The material starts as a flat coil or blank and each pair of rolls or pass adds some shape.
Roll forming is a continuous metal forming process taking sheet, strip or coil stock and bending or forming it to a continuous cross section. The process is performed between successive pairs of rolls that increasingly shape it until the desired section is completed.
The roll forming process can be used to form a wide variety of cross-section profiles. An open profile is most common, but a closed tube-like shape can be created as well. Because the final form is achieved through a series of bends, the part does not require a symmetric cross-section.
