07, Mar 2024 101 views

Roll forming machines are an important tool used in the manufacturing industry. It is easy to see that its applications are quite wide, covering areas like automotive, household appliances, manufacturing, air and space etc. Therefore, in the application of forming machine, molding accuracy efficiency became a public focus, and ensured its molding accuracy and efficiency in many skilled applications.


Equipment Preparation and Inspection

Proper equipment and inspection are key to ensuring accuracy and efficiency of weaving before the roll machine is used.

Equipment Appearance Inspection: Check to make sure the equipment is in good condition with no visible deformation or corrosion. Make sure that the fasteners of the equipment are not loose and the safety guards are intact.

Lubrication system check: check the lubrication system of the equipment, including the oil level of the tank, whether the oil quality is qualified, and whether the oil circuit of each lubrication point is smooth. According to the requirements of the equipment, replace the lubricant regularly to ensure that the equipment operates in a good lubrication state.

Electrical system check: check the electrical system of the equipment, including motor, cable, control panel, and so on. Make sure that the electrical system is safe and reliable, free from short-circuits, outages and any other faults.

Roller Inspection: Check for roller wear and check that the surface of the roller is smooth and free of cracks or severe damage. If the rollers are severely worn, replace them in due course to ensure perfect weaving.

Heating system check (if applicable): For roll forming machines that require heating, check whether the heating system is working properly. Make sure the heating temperature is even and stable to meet the molding requirements of different materials.

Operation Process and Tips

During the operation of the roll forming machine, mastering some key skills and precautions will help improve the molding accuracy and efficiency.

Material Placement and Positioning: Place the material to be processed in a suitable position on the roll forming machine to ensure that the material is flat and stable. Use clamps or other devices to fix the material to prevent the material from moving or deforming during the rolling process.

Adjust roller pressure: The amount of roller pressure directly affects the quality of the molding. Insufficient pressure may result in the material not being able to flow adequately, forming defects; while too much pressure may result in excessive deformation of the material or even damage to the equipment. Therefore, according to the thickness of the material, hardness and molding requirements, reasonable adjustment of roller pressure.

Control of rolling speed: rolling speed is an important factor affecting molding accuracy and efficiency. Too high rolling speed may lead to uneven material deformation, affecting the molding quality; while too low rolling speed may reduce production efficiency. Therefore, according to the nature of the material, equipment performance and process requirements, choose the appropriate rolling speed.

Observe the molding process: In the rolling process, the operator should closely observe the molding situation. Pay attention to the changes in the material and the molding effect, timely adjustment of the roller position, pressure or rolling speed to ensure the quality of molding.

Reasonable arrangement of production batch: for continuous production of roll forming machine, should be reasonable arrangement of production batch. According to the type of material, thickness and molding requirements will be similar to the type of material arranged in the same batch for production, in order to reduce equipment adjustment and replacement time and improve production efficiency.

Control molding temperature: For some thermoplastic materials, molding temperature is critical to the roll forming process. Too high a temperature may cause the material to melt too quickly, affecting molding accuracy, while too low a temperature may result in poor material flow, making it difficult to mold. Therefore, it is necessary to reasonably control the molding temperature according to the melting point, thermal stability and molding requirements of the material.

Keep the equipment clean: roll forming machines are prone to accumulate dust and impurities during use, and these impurities may affect the molding quality. Therefore, the equipment needs to be cleaned regularly to keep the rollers, transmission system and lubrication system clean. At the same time, it is also necessary to check the wear and tear of the equipment on a regular basis, and replace the parts that are badly worn in a timely manner.

Maintenance and care after roll forming machine operation

After completing a roll forming machine operation, timely maintenance and servicing is essential to maintain equipment performance, extend service life, and ensure molding accuracy and efficiency for the next operation.



In summary, the roll forming machine,as an important manufacturing tool, plays an important role in the manufacturing process. By obtaining information on the performance of roll forming machines, operators can ensure accuracy and precision to improve efficiency. The scroll industry will face many challenges and opportunities in the future as the industry continues to evolve.
