There are plenty of other metals (besides steel) that are used for roll forming and other metal forming processes. Some of the most commonly used metals include:
Durability. Flexibility. Cost-effectiveness. Adaptability for a variety of industrial and commercial applications. You’ve probably wondered at some point how hot forming and cold forming compare in these categories.
Roll formed components often require hole punching -- after all, that’s probably one reason why you chose roll forming to begin with, right?
“What is roll forming?”
Even design engineers with 20+ years of experience still Google this question. Despite its efficient and industrious nature, roll forming is a niche manufacturing process known to few, and understood by fewer.
Bringing metal roll forming processes into your plant is a complex investment. It’s more than just buying a machine that you turn on and off whenever you need it. There are additional costs and risks you won't understand unless you run a full-blown roll forming factory.
Maintaining inventory of what a customer needs for production, and nothing more, is a delicate and complicated balance. As inventory ages, it can depreciate to a level that no longer adds value for the producer. This is especially true in metal forming processes.
Steel windows are great. Steel windows on your terms are even better.
These sleek, modern products are now popular in not only commercial architecture, but in residential applications as well. It’s not hard to see why -- steel windows are the best at matching durability with elegance.
Galvanized steel and stainless steel are big in construction circles -- but what about architecture and interior design? Depending on the aesthetics you crave for your next design, either one can make a very specific visual impact.
The oceanfront is a beautiful but expensive place to live. And as it turns out, it’s also one of the most difficult places to use metal in outdoor architecture.
