With the continuous development of modern construction technology, metal roofing, as a new type of building material, is favored by more and more construction industries because of its advantages of beauty, durability and easy installation. And roofing machine is one of the important equipments to realize the production of metal roof. In this paper, we will introduce the definition, working principle, application areas and development trend of roofing machine in detail, in order to provide readers with a comprehensive understanding.


Definition of roofing machine

Roofing machine, also known as metal corrugated sheet molding machine or metal tile machine, is a kind of machinery and equipment specially used for making metal roofing materials of various shapes and specifications through continuous stamping, cutting, bending and other processes of metal coil or sheet. It usually consists of feeding mechanism, molding mechanism, cutting mechanism, hydraulic system and electrical control system, etc. It can realize automation and continuous production, which greatly improves the production efficiency.

Working principle of roofing machine

The working principle of roofing machine is mainly based on mechanical stamping and hydraulic transmission technology. The working process is as follows:

Discharge mechanism will be metal coil or sheet according to the set speed and direction into the molding mechanism.

The forming mechanism continuously presses and bends the metal sheet through a series of dies and rollers to form the desired waveform or shape.

During the forming process, the cutting mechanism cuts the metal sheet according to the set length to obtain a single metal roofing material.

Finally, it is precisely controlled by the hydraulic system and electrical control system to ensure the stability and accuracy of the whole production process.


Application field of roofing machine

Roofing machine is widely used in construction, transportation, metallurgy, chemical industry and other fields, especially in the construction industry. The following are some main application fields:

Construction industry: roofing machine can be used to make various metal roofing sheets, such as wave plate, trapezoidal plate, curved plate, etc. It is used to cover roofs and walls of industrial plants, warehouses, gymnasiums, exhibition halls and other buildings.
