Sheet metal goes through a series of roller dies, it is formed into the desired corrugation metal profile. The corrugated sheet metal has widely used as roofing, wall siding, decking in residential, commercial, agricultural, industrial buildings.
Due to the material technology development, Galvanized Steel, Galvalume, PPGI, and PPGL (color steel) are widely used as the raw material of corrugated sheet metal. The roofing panels have a longer service time, and more color and pattern choices for customers.
As a professional roll former manufacturer, Brother Union Machinery has been designing and producing machines that produce a variety of metal corrugated sheets:
Corrugated Roof Sheet; Standing seam roofing; R-Panel roofing; PBR-Panel roofing;U-Panel roofing; IBR roof Sheet; Metal Wall sidings, and customized roofing profiles
We are proud that we have been producing cost-efficient roll-formers. Please contact us for the price of a roofing panel machine.
Since the year 2008, Brother Union Machinery has been serving the renowned roofing panel manufacturers. Cooperating closely with the roofing machine users, we have designed a series of roof panel/wall panel production line according to the users' requirements.

Uncoiler - Feeding & Guiding - Roll Forming - Shearing - Conveyor
|Size(L W G) (m)||Weight(Kg)|
|Uncoiler||1.3 × 2.0 × 1.9 ||3500|
|Roll Forming & Cutting||10 ×1.5 × 1.8||8500|
|Conveyor Frame||6.0 ×1.0 × 0.9||300|
This Uncoiler has a capacity of 5000kg, and the mandrel expanding is by hydraulic force, and its rotation is driven by electrical motor.
Through an ultrasonic sensor, the steel coil uncoiling speed is controled to fit the roll forming speed
Due to its rigid base and strong framing, this roof panel making machine has a production speed of 40 meters/min.
Some non-metal material parts installed in this production line are helpful to prevent scratching damages to the roofing panel surface.
The roller dies material is 45# carbon steel (GB-Chinese Standard, equal to ASTM 1045) and its surface is hard chrome plated, so the roller has a long time service time.
The center shafts are made of 40Cr Steel (GB-Chinese Standard, equal to ASTM 5140). After tempering heat treatment, they have higher hardness.
The shear mold material is D2 (High carbon-chromium tool steel), It can bear over two million times shearing in a normal production situation.
In conclusion, this roll forming machine can produce roofing panels automatically, continuously at a high speed. It is easy to operate, maintain, and has a long service life.
The following data is the roof panel machine's general data. Because of some-customized modifications according to customer's requirements in real production, the actual data should be subject to the business contract.

Due to its low cost, lightweight, easy to install, and low maintenance, Metal roofing was initially popular in the late 19th century.
After world war 2, modern roll forming technology was developed. An automatic roll former can produce roof panels at a high speed which was unimaginable before. This process reduces roofing production costs significantly.
Today, people have more options to choose the roofing panel styles and colors they wanted. Metal roofings are everywhere, becuase of their advantages, such as long life expectancy, certain quality metal roofings can last more than 60 years without much maintainance work. They are more widely used in residential, commercial, agricultural, industrial buildings.
In a metal roofing system, not only the roofing panels but also the roof trims including ridge channel, drip edge, eave, and gutter are also can be made by the roll forming process.
The following roof sheet profiles have been producing by roll forming machine made by Brother Union Machinery.
R Type Roofing Panel
R-Panel / PBR-panel is a corrugated metal roof that has ribs of varying heights. The panels can be installed on metal purlins or beams. It is a low-maintenance, durable roofing material and is widely used as roofing in residential, commercial, industrial, and agricultural buildings. It also works as a wall-siding commonly. Brother Union Machinery has been manufacturing roll formers for this type of multi-use wall and roof panels.
Corrgated Roofing Panel
A corrugated metal panel, also called corrugated galvanised iron(CGI), these panels are mass-produced nowadays through roll forming. Due to the corrugated sheet metal has advantages of lower cost, corrosion-resistant, high-strengh,and easily transported, the panels are widely used as roofing, wall siding, floor decking.
U Type Roof panel
U-panel is a corrugated metal roof that has same heights ribs. It is section shape is similar like R roof panel. Brother Unin Machinery has been manfuacring roll former for U-panel manufacturers.
IBR Panel / Box Profile Roofing Panel
IBR(Inverted Box Rib) is a roof panel with a square fluted profile, which is popular in the Africa roofing market. This sheet is like any other metal roofing sheet but features distinctive box sections rather than curved corrugations. They are commonly used in agricultural buildings, commercial warehouses, and residential buildings.
Standing Seam Roof Panel, Wall Panel
A standing seam metal roofing is characterized by a flat space between upright or trapezoidal legs, and because its fasteners are concealed, it looks neat and modern. The standing seam roof panel can be used as a roofing panel and wall panel. Brother Union Machinery has produced industrial roll forming lines that Produce standing seam roofing panels for the American market.
Though Brother Union Machinery has been producing roll forming machines for roofing sheet business worldwide. We have to say there are too many patterns of roofing sheets, we are a professional machinery manufacturer that focus on making machines, but not a roofing manufacturer. We just list the part of common roofing profiles we have been involving.
We are always here to serve a roofing panel manufacturer, and we hope to receive your new roll-forming designing request with inventive roofing profiles. After all, our engineers and technicians are very expert in custom roll forming machines.
