Rollforming for the Metal Construction Industry Part 1

“Considerations for Metal Building Roll Formers” presented by Matt Werner and Shawn Huffman

This presentation will challenge participants to think about panel, purlin, and trim roll forming in a production environment. How does technology apply to return on investment? What is the balance between technology and resources? Does automation help the bottom line? Understand equipment used in the production of metal building components, what components to look for when investing in equipment, and technology and efficiency as it relates to productivity.

“Utilizing Existing Capital Equipment and Tooling” presented by Brian Rogers, Sr.

With today’s changing products and the pressure of custom products, a company needs the ability to be flexible. Being flexible in the roll forming industry is nothing new. Today there are roll forming machines that are 50+ years old meeting today’s demands. Many of these machines have had face lifts and tweaks at a fraction of the cost of new equipment. New tooling, controls, rebuilds, and focus have been the keys to the success. This class will look at utilizing your equipment and will help with the points of evaluation needed to use older equipment. Whether using some or all existing equipment, companies can develop economical solutions for today’s demands.

“Improve Profitability & Competitiveness through Computer Integrated Manufacturing” Presented by Andy Allman

Learn how to eliminate production mistakes, minimize scrap and improve your responsiveness to customer needs. Integrated roll forming and trim shop machine controls support downloading of production schedules, ensure the correct coil is used for every order, and can track everything that happens at each machine. Find out the true production capacity of your machines and who your best operators are. Use OEE to monitor productivity and Pareto analysis to help prioritize your continuous improvement efforts. As competition becomes more intense, you cannot afford to be stuck with a manual production control system.

“Proper Roll Form Tooling Setup and Troubleshooting” Presented by Steve Ebel

This presentation will show how to set up roll form tooling and document the setup. The session will also cover inspection of the roll former and how to maintain the machine face alignment or calibrate the machine to achieve the best possible setup of roll form tooling. Build standard ideas for roll form tooling manufacture as well as useful hints on troubleshooting the tooling and setup will also be shared.
