When you’re considering different suppliers for custom roll formed metal parts, one factor to take into consideration is the location of the supplier and related logistics of transferring parts from the supplier’s facility to yours or to the installation location. With locations across the southeast US and in central Mexico, Roller Die + Forming is […]
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.

Mixing Standard and Custom Tooling
To create roll formed metal shapes, we use specially-designed rollers that bend the strip metal incrementally until the correct cross-section is achieved. These rollers, along with pre-punches, presses, and cut-off dies, are part of the tooling that is necessary to create a part. Each time your part is run at Roller Die, this tooling must […]
Solar Carports and Covers
Solar carports are one of those obviously really good ideas and they are starting to pop up across the country, shading cars and keeping them cool during the day while providing energy to power buildings and even those same cars. In areas of the country where solar is a strong source of alternative power, solar […]
