Cylindrical Rolling for Shaping Metal

Shaping Metal Using Cylindrical Rolling

Shaping metal using cylindrical rolling has been round for a long time. It works by feeding metal through a series of offset rollers. Then pressure is applied as the metal is fed through the cylindrical rollers. The pressure applied causes the sheet of metal to curial. To increase the angle of the bend, you increase the offset of the rollers. The beauty of cylindrical roller is that they can be use to bend a number of flat metals like: sheets, plates, and flat round stock. Using concaved rollers with a shape rolling allows you to bend round shaped metals like: tubing, pipe, drill rod, and threaded rod.
