Roller Forming - A Viable Assembly Solution
Static rollerforming uses spinning rollers and down-force to create an aesthetically pleasing lip. The non-impact nature of the process, combined with its inherent precision and accuracy, make it possible to form delicate or brittle materials. Static rollerheads provide consistency and efficiency to your forming process.
Articulating rollerforming has rollerheads that come in from the side, and can be used to form a groove in a part, or when there are obstructions to clear in order to form a lip. 360° contact gives consistent action for the duration the part is being formed.
By adding process intelligence it is possible to accurately monitor and/or control the forming force, distance, and stroke during the rollerforming process.
- Can accommodate a through spindle pressure pad to compress material before forming
- Minimizes scuffing, galling, and material pick up
- Allows the use of smaller tooling to form large diameter applications
- Requires less force than Orbital Forming
