How We Use Our Plate Rolling Equipment for Steel Fabrication Jobs

22 November 2022

The process of rolling plates is extremely important to the whole metal production. Flat metal sheets are rolled into cylindrical objects like pipelines, tanker trucks, buckets, and pressure tanks using this process. Plate rolling produces a wide variety of complex, cutting-edge, and one-of-a-kind items, the majority of which are made with the assistance of specialised machinery that is either referred to as a plate rolling machine or a plate bending machine. In the next section of this article, we’ll look at what a plate roll machine is and how it’s used in the manufacturing business.

What Our Plate Roll Machine Does

A plate roll machine is a piece of equipment that is utilised in rolling various types of sheet metal into round, semi-round, round with varying radii, or conical shapes (some machines specialise in rolling materials back to flat as well!).

Our plate roll machines are also utilised in rolling materials back to the flat. The rolling machine has a functioning mechanism that enables it to bend flat sheet metal into a huge arc or cylinder, a square, an elliptical form, and an arc with several sections. These shapes may be created in a variety of different ways. The material that has to be moulded is placed between a set of hardened rollers that are extremely accurate and robust, and either hydraulic or mechanical mechanisms operate these rolls. The rolls are then brought into a pitching position. After the material has been securely secured between two rolls, a third and occasionally even a fourth roll will be moved into position. This will press the material, generating the initial bend known as the pre-bend. After that, the rolls start to spin, drawing the material through the pinching rolls and pushing rolls to create an arc in the material they’re working with.

Other Functions and Features of our Plate Rolling Machine

Our rolling sheet machines here at Sharp Crane Hire are utilised in the manufacturing process of virtually every sort of cylindrical product. Their usefulness may be seen in various products, such as pressure vessels (widespread application in the oil and gas industries), household appliances, ships, wind power, military armaments, aircraft, and automobiles.

Not all rolled metals are made equal, so your project may need a particular plate roll machine. As a result, you ought to anticipate coming across a substantial variety of plate rollers in the industry. The difficulty and individuality of the customer’s requests must guide your selection of the appropriate machinery for the job.

Plate Rolling Machine Variants

Two roll plate machines bend sheet metal up to 8-12″ wide and 12 thick. They’re great for mass-producing thin cylindrical goods like filter canisters.

Three-roll sheet rollers might be asymmetrical, horizontal, or geometric changeable and can bend medium to thick plates using distinct concepts. Three-roll sheet bending machines are utilised in chemical, boiler, shipbuilding, metal construction, petroleum, and machinery manufacture.

4-roll plate bending machines stretch flat sheet metal into spherical, cone, and other forms. Four-roll plate benders are more productive, precise, safer, adaptable, and easy to use. Once the material is set and pinched, the two rollers on either side accomplish the job without removing the plate and pre-bending both ends. They can roll up to 8″ thick plate steel and presumably include CNC controls for varying radii and complicated forms like elliptic and polycentric workpieces. They may be used on various sheet metals and are highly automated. Roll tube segments, ovals, rounded boxes, and various forms.
