Contour Roll Forming

Contour roll forming machines offer another type of bending process that goes beyond stretch forming. Specifically designed to apply curvature to aircraft stringers and frames, contour roll forming machines can operate on three planes of space, instead of two. Contour roll forming also requires less force and offers the advantage of theoretically unlimited length as the material need only pass through the rollers. However, they still employ the basic principle of bending the metal beyond its elastic limits. As a result, contour roll forming machines strengthen the metal just like stretch forming machines.

In addition to building superior quality contour roll forming machines, we can rebuild or refurbish existing machines. If you have an old contour roll forming machine this process can save you money on buying a brand new machine and can save time in the manufacturing process. A rebuild also allows you to upgrade the old machine with new components to improve its performance.
