Did you think roll forming had to take weeks and months to design, set up, and produce a quality product? We thought so, too. That is, until we realized we could standardize the roll forming process of a small selection of metal mouldings.
Currently, we offer eleven unique molding designs as quick ship products. If none of them appeal to you, don’t worry. You can still experience efficient and convenient online ordering with custom mouldings - they’ll just take a little longer to ship, and won’t have the small quantity volume discount.
Benefits of Quick Ship Metal Mouldings
1. Small Quantities
Only need a few meters of mouldings? No problem. Our eStore mouldings are volume-discounted specifically for small orders. We can meet the needs of projects both big and small. No upcharges, no worries.
2. Fast Shipping
These specific mouldings will be shipped in four days or less. Guaranteed. That’ll cut down your lead times by weeks - maybe even months. That kind of lead time reduction can be a game changer for any company.
3. Shorter Lead Times
Shortened lead times bring a host of additional benefits. These include:
- Lower overall costs
- Quicker response to demand and scheduling of installation labor.
- Elimination of unnecessary wastes (large batches, excess inventory, etc.)
- Lower chances of damaged products
- Increased customer satisfaction
4. Classic Designs
All designs offered in our quick ship section were designed between 1922-1937. Dahlstrom RF has been producing architectural formed metal since 1905. These designs are tried and true, and their aesthetic is attractive across generations.
The parts you need are ready to ship. If you know exactly what you need, what specs, what materials, etc., purchasing ready-to-ship parts online cuts out a lot of unnecessary dancing around. You can take these designs to your engineer or your project manager and get the ball rolling immediately.
Like any shipment of mouldings, we advise the following for your safety, and for the proper care and treatment of the product:
- Moldings should be installed by a professional metalworker
- Somebody should be there to sign for the delivery. Moldings will not be left unattended
- The mouldings are quite heavy, and may require a few people to carry
Don’t see what you want in the quick ship section? Don't worry - you can still order custom mouldings online.
There’s nothing new or mysterious about “just-in-time” or JIT manufacturing. The idea has been around since the 1970s, and all it means is that you receive what you need, just when you need it -- hence the popular term just-in-time delivery.
Yet, when it first came into practice, it shook up[...]
Are you looking for a high-capacity manufacturing partner? Those are everywhere, even in the niche world of roll formed parts. But how many of those possess the agility of a small business?
Just roll forming isn’t very valuable to you. You can do just roll forming in-house. To be competitive, a manufacturer has to offer value throughout your supply chain, from beginning to end of the project.
