Commercial trailer parts

Trucking is one of the most crucial elements of any supply chain. From raw materials to food, trucking is responsible for delivering much of the freight throughout the U.S.

Roll forming plays a major role in ensuring these goods get to where they need to go by providing many structural and decorative aspects of commercial trailer parts. From a semi truck frame to livestock trailer parts, roll forming is an efficient and economical option for commercial trailer parts.  

Roll Forming for Commercial Trailer Parts

Structural chassis components are the bulk of the industry. Do you want interior doors that protect drivers during a crash? Use roll formed parts.

The back structural components and the chassis on trailers and trucks are roll formed. Every type of roll formed channel can be used to build the interior framing/skeleton for the cabs. Hat and box channels make sturdy, lightweight frames.

The inside of enclosed trailers often has a series of exposed framing members that accept straps to secure loads. 

Decorative metal trim spruces up the outside and covers up seams.

Roll Forming Advantages

Commercial trailer parts need a high volume of long, slender components, which is roll forming’s specialty. Roll forming is a highly repeatable process. Once the tooling is in place, roll forming produces components more consistently than other metal shaping processes, even over long runs. 

Why should you consider roll forming for commercial trailer parts? Roll forming can fabricate parts with:

  • Huge volumes 
  • Tolerance control 
  • Complex profiles
  • Inline punching for accepting mating parts or wiring harnesses
  • Tricky hole patterns
  • Pristine finishes

Hole punching, bending, and cutting to length can easily fit into one continuous process rather than separate steps. Roll forming is a more cost-effective and productive method in all these cases.
