Rollforming for the Metal Construction Industry Part 2

 “Material and How it Affects Metal Building Products in the Roll Forming Process” Presented by Brian Rogers

This presentation will focus on how material changes can make a difference in your products. When material is changed, it can make slight differences that may change your part. Adjustments may be necessary to keep the desired outcome. Die tonnage, roll design, and roll former overall strength issues will be included in the discussion.

“Creative Options for Punching/Shearing/Cutoff Challenges in the Metal Building Industry” Presented by Paul Williams

This session will help you understand the different types of punching and cutoff systems required for automating roll forming lines for the metal construction industry.

Areas to be covered include:

  • Punching systems for purlins, studs, joists, corner beads, vertical commercial siding

  • Stationary punching systems with servo-feeds
  • Flying punching systems with electronic measuring
  • High-speed rotary punching units

  • Cut off systems for roof panels, siding panels, purlins, studs, joists, etc.

  • Measurement and acceleration methods
  • What type of press is best for each application?
  • Pre-shear and post-cutoff systems

“Advanced Roll Forming of Steel Framing Components” Presented by Brian Rodgers

This presentation will provide insight into the latest advancements in roll forming system technology for the Steel Framing Industry. Discussions will focus on automated equipment change-over for material thickness, cross sectional variations, punched opening locations, and part lengths. Handling of the finished product in high-speed operations will be discussed. Also addressed, will be the level of operator training required. The advantages of programmable rotary punching and cutoff systems will be presented. Included, will be specific examples of these technologies being utilized in the manufacture of steel framing products.

“Automation and Material Handling for Roll Formed Products – Emphasizing Operator Safety, Labor Reduction & High-Speed Production” Presented by Chuck Summerhill

The need for material handling and automated packaging equipment can be justified from safety, labor reduction, or for high-speed production requirements. Automated packaging can solve all three requirements. This presentation will educate companies on how to identify which categories and prioritize their material handling requirements. The presentation will then explore the current solutions that are feasible within an example company’s current budget and detail the solutions payback.
