Warehouse Shelving

warehouse storage

Think of the last trip you made to a grocery store. Chances are, the cereal, frozen vegetables, soft drinks, and household cleaning products you purchased weren’t produced anywhere near where you live. They all spent time in at least one warehouse before showing up in your favorite store. 

Without roll formed parts, warehouse distribution would not function at the level it does today. 


Roll Formed Parts for Warehouse Shelving

Many warehouse storage parts are long, slender, and perfect for roll forming, such as:

  • Pallet racks
  • Conveyors
  • Shelving posts
  • Shelving supports 
  • Cross members
  • Metal joists

Roll Forming Advantages

Warehouse storage systems need a high volume of long, slender parts, 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 warehouse storage parts?  Roll forming can fabricate parts with:

  • Huge volumes 
  • Tolerance control 
  • Complex profiles
  • Inline punching for accepting mating parts
  • Tricky hole patterns

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.
