The applications for rolled sheet metal parts are endless. Products are made everyday that use extremely expensive and bulky machines just to simply roll sheetmetal, some parts end up coming out with more scratches and problems than when they went in. The need for a robust and fast machine that can fit in line with budgets is difficult to find. Maybe you are interested in prototyping a part prior to putting in to production? Acrotech has filled the void with our roll bending machine lineup. We offer our unique and highly robust machines to satisfy any industrial light to medium duty need for sheet metal rolling.
The unique part of our machinery is that it can be completely customized for your needs. Tooling is available for rolling parts small or large diameter and thickness of the material. Our urethane roller not only allows a smooth form, we are able to roll parts at the right pressure to ensure a defect free finish. Have special extruded or cut out parts to roll? No Problem, the urethane acts as a buffer and will allow it to keep its shape while rolling in the diameter that you need. for intricate parts or less deformation we are able to customize the urethane durometer or hardness to suit your material. Adding safety features and fencing to comply with codes are our specialty. The list goes on…
We recently built a custom V-1006 vertical sheet metal rolling machine for a customer. We added a bunch of safety features, custom controls and a feed bar / guide for effortless and repeat rolling. The vertical rolling machines unique feature is that the part is released down when the cycle has finished. Simply add a bin or add a conveyor for easy transition to the next stage of production.
Check out the video below to see more pictures of this machine and to see it operating. Note how easy it is to load the parts and how quickly they are released. Pushing out parts like this in approximately 10 seconds is simply a great over time cost savings. Be sure to contact us for more information and feel free to talk with our engineers about how we could help customize a sheet metal rolling machine for your application.
