Thin plate roll forming is an important metal forming technology and is widely used in automobiles, aviation, construction and other fields. This article will introduce the basic principles, process flow and technical characteristics of thin plate roll forming, and explain its application and prospects in actual production.
Thin plate roll forming is to rotate a metal sheet through a pair or more rollers, and use the pressure of the rollers to press the metal sheet into shape. During the roll forming process, the pressure of the rollers acts on the surface of the metal sheet, causing plastic deformation of the metal sheet to obtain the required shape and size.
The process flow of thin plate roll forming includes the following steps:
1. Prepare raw materials: select appropriate metal sheets and perform surface treatment to ensure forming quality and accuracy.
2. Roll forming: The metal sheet is fed between the rollers, and the metal sheet is plastically deformed through the rotation and pressure of the rollers.
3. Cooling and straightening: Cool and straighten the formed metal sheet to eliminate internal stress and improve accuracy and quality.
4. Quality inspection: Conduct quality inspection on the formed metal sheets, including size, shape, surface quality, etc.
5. Packaging and storage: Pack the qualified products and store them in the warehouse.
Thin plate roll forming has the following technical characteristics:
1. High precision: Thin plate roll forming can achieve high-precision shape and size.
2. High efficiency: Thin plate roll forming has fast speed and high production efficiency.
3. Low cost: The cost of thin plate roll forming is relatively low and has good economic benefits.
4. Wide scope of application: Thin plate roll forming is suitable for metal sheets of various materials and thicknesses.
