Steel roll formed U Channel When making a roll formed steel channel, Roller Die pairs the known benefits of steel with our unparalleled experience producing roll formed products such as steel channels. Our engineers manage one of the most extensive catalogs of standard channel shapes in the United States. We manufacture many variations of steel channels, often with free tooling from our parts library:

Cost Savings Passed To Our Customers

Z Channel Steel Roll FormedRoller Die is able to keep the price of rolled steel channels low due to our strategic and bulk buying. We have the ability to combine customer orders and watch the market to buy when steel prices are low. We can ensure the lowest available material costs for all steel angle projects.
