The roll form engineers at Metform apply their know-how and knowledge to determine the mill’s capability to form by understanding how the material behaves and choosing the right material. It is a requirement for the team to understand the mechanical forces of forming process and how it affects the strip. This is vital in helping tooling engineers on how to design the tooling properly.
“At Metform, our roll forming engineers and tooling engineers work together to identify the specific requirements for forming mills that are used for high-strength materials,” stated Mark Volkmann, Metform President. “Understanding the limit and effect in forming high-strength material helps both roll forming and tooling engineers in creating the right tooling design for our clients to reduce tooling cost and produce high-quality tooling and formed products.”
