Roll Forming or Stamping
Roll formed metal parts, as an alternative (with lower die costs), to long metal stampings that incur extremely high tooling costs. “Very Expensive” stamping dies for longer parts and for parts with length changes, can be prohibitive enough to merit a look into roll forming your parts as opposed to having them produced as stampings. Jobs where lower cost tooling is a must on longer parts, over 6″ in most cases. Many inline fabrications are provided now in Roll Forming that makes Roll Forming operations even more appealing than stampings.
High speed cutoff and inline fabrication presses to accompany roll forming operation, making manufacturing a mix of both the stamping and roll forming fabrication industries. This allows for die costs sharing between both forming methods to provide the most economical die costs possible.
