Metal Roll Forming Systems
Without roll forming, everything from consumer products to military equipment may look different and cost more. Our automatic lubrication systems for the roll forming process efficiently shape large quantities of metal into custom profiles used for further manufacturing, but it can subject workpieces and equipment alike to excessive wear.
Get friction on your roll forming lines under control with support from JET-SET. Our hydraulic spray lubrication systems deposit precise amounts of lubricants on critical surfaces, reducing the likelihood of irregularities that can negatively impact productivity.
Benefits Of Precision Lubrication Matter?
Manufacturers produce roll-formed material by passing sheets of metal, typically coiled steel, through many rolls. Each set of rolls performs incremental parts of the bend, ultimately making the desired cross-section profile.
Many issues can arise when tooling and workpiece surfaces come into direct contact without proper lubrication. Some examples include:
- Unwanted Heating, Changing Material Characteristics
These issues can lead to batches of nonconforming finished products, which can hurt customer relationships and drive up operational costs.
Furthermore, many roll-forming lines involve material-handling systems like conveyors. Friction caused by two surfaces sliding past each other can hinder performance in many ways.
- Unwanted Impacts
- Heat Build-Up
A material-handling system that doesn’t move products from one area to another effectively can drag down roll forming line performance. It can reduce flow rates while increasing energy usage.
Improving Roll Forming Line Lubrication
Incorporating a hydraulic spray lubrication system from JET-SET into your roll forming process is very beneficial. These systems deposit precise amounts of lubricants in designated areas, separating critical surfaces and avoiding the detrimental impacts of friction.
Other advantages include:
- Forms A Protective Film
- Controls Corrosion
- Improves Equipment Lifespan
- Increases Cleanliness
- Keeps Parts Cool During Operation
