Brother Union Machinery has designed and manufactured roll forming machines for Customers with high quality requirements, especially automotive industry. In the automotive industry. Cars' roll-formed parts use a variety of specifications, and most of the sections are more complex, and the dimensional accuracy is strict. And with the development of automotive lightweighting, car manufacturers reduce the wall thickness and to increase the strength of the materials.We are proud that we have participated in the high-yield strength car bumper production line manufacturing and supplied our roll forming equipment for world-renowned automobile parts enterprises.
Brother Union Machinery always focuses on boosting productivity of roll forming equipment to proper level,to balance the equipment purchase cost and production efficiency.
Roll Forming VS Brake Forming
|Roll Forming||Conventional Sheet Metal Fabrication|
|Typically holds tighter tolerances||Typically holds looser tolerances|
|Inline punching,notching,etc - elimates secondary operation||Mutiple operation required - shearing, notching, perforating, etc.|
|Complex shapes||Simple shapes|
|Longer part lengths||Most brake parts have limited length|
|High-speed production||Slower production speed|
|Lower labor costs||Higher labor costs|
|Potentially higher tooling costs||Potentially lower tooling costs|
|Longer set-up time||Shorter set-up time|
|Potentially more scrap||Potentially less scrap|
