A great roll formed steel U channel can do wonders for your project’s cost- and time effectiveness. That’s why we created MeshTrim.
What Is U channel edge trim?
First off, a U channel is a tall, skinny, metal formed product. Deeper channels (a little deeper and more narrow than what you see above) can only be achieved through roll forming. Other forming methods can reach into the U shape as well as they can with standard steel[...]
As an architectural designer, the last thing you want is a creative barrier.
MeshTrim is the most versatile woven wire mesh frame choice in the world. No, the universe.
Roll formed components often require hole punching -- after all, that’s probably one reason why you chose roll forming to begin with, right?
Roll forming is the most cost-effective way to achieve continuous production of complex shapes with multiple bends. But even we admit it’s not a perfect system. There are two particular quirks of roll forming that engineers must understand and accept before committing to the process: end flare and[...]
To manufacturers, a channel is one of the most simplistic shapes on earth. This helps explain why channels are a commodity product -- they’re easy to make and extremely functional. As simple as a roll formed channel is, understanding C and U channel price factors is a little more complicated.
Architectural design aims to balance economy, elegance, and efficiency. Perforated metal paneling and wire mesh certainly apply to all three.
Manufacturing process improvement can be tricky!
We all want to improve our manufacturing processes and create added productivity. We use scads of analysis, cost accounting numbers, and other manufacturing process improvement tools to evaluate our nonproductive processes. Our computer systems keep[...]
