Plate rolling is the technique of choice for any metals that are relatively thick. Although sheets of various sizes and thicknesses may be used, this is the primary manufacturing process for metal bending large pieces of plate.
Roll bending uses either three or four rolls to feed and bend the plate to the desired curvature. The arrangement of the rolls determines the exact bend of the work. Different curves are obtained by controlling the distance and angle between the rolls. Moveable rolls provide the ability to control the curve. At Barnshaws we have a range of variable geometry roll bending machines that can cover a wide range of requirements.
