The company is certainly feeling the positive impact and has grown its capabilities to provide solutions including high frequency welding, roll spot welding, in-line sweeping and corresponding custom cut-off units for various complex automtove profiles. Metform has provided several tooling sets lately for particularly challenging sections with exciting results. The company has gained global notoriety for their engineering and design expertise while working together with their customers to develop products utilizing high strength and ultra high strength steel.
These new capabilities will provide reliable processing of UHSS and higher speeds with better tolerances to better meet the growing needs for these newer lighter sections as weight reduction and fuel economy continue to be at the forefront of engineering challenges in the automotive market.
“Over the years, we have focused our efforts in further developing our metal bending know-how to increase our footprint in this market.

The new technology advancements will benefit customers in reduction of overall labour costs and potential failure points in the processing flow for a complete fully automated in-line roll forming unit. The line can incorporate both the profile forming, in line welding and bending or sweeping of the bumper. These new features will provide the necessary capability to roll form at high volumes with consistent reliability and repeatable parts manufacturing to meet the high quality demands expected from any automotive supplier.
