You need long, slender, L-shaped metal components for your project.
Several metal forming processes can achieve the desired result, such as stamping, press braking, or extrusion. A comparison that isn’t talked about enough? The differences between metal roll forming and angle iron.
As far as metal forming techniques go, roll forming has long been a standard for OEMs. You’re probably already familiar with its numerous advantages, including:
Metal fabrication can be complex, but there are certain methods that can be used to make it simpler and more efficient.
Roll forming design can go off the tracks quickly if your concept involves one or more of these features:
U.S. manufacturing has had its share of bad turns over the last 50 years, with entire industries being outsourced to other parts of the world. This is not good news for metal roll forming companies.
Starting with products like clothing and electronics, we gradually saw large corporations move[...]
Every manufacturing setup has limits in achieving its goals. The Theory of Constraints (TOC) is a management methodology that claims systems are as vulnerable as their weakest person or part. TOC aims to improve that constraint until it’s no longer a bottleneck to your growth and success.
