One of the most common questions the Roller Die + Forming engineers get is how long tooling lasts, especially when a customer is purchasing custom tooling. Standard tooling is great for running many shapes, but customers often have their own specialty cross sections or punch patterns and want custom tooling to make exactly the roll […]
Roll Formed Aluminum
Aluminum is a very versatile material that works well with the roll forming process. Aluminum provides the advantage of being lightweight, while also offering significant strength. Some aluminum alloys can be two to three times stronger than steel. Other advantages aluminum roll forming products offer include:
- Non-combustible – Aluminum is a safer option over other materials where fire is potentially a hazard. Rolled aluminum alloys generate no dangerous emissions when exposed to heat, and do not burn.
- Corrosion resistant – When exposed to air, aluminum forms a natural, transparent oxide film, protecting it against further reaction and corrosion. Certain rolled aluminum alloys will maximize corrosion resistance for certain applications.
- Non-toxic – Rolled aluminum alloys are non-absorbent, easily cleaned, and non-toxic, making them well suited for products that will be used in food applications.
