What is Roll Forming?

Roll forming is the most economical production process for the continuous bending of metal channels, angles, and complex shapes with multiple bends.

It is a cold-forming process that gradually bends flat metal into a finished, uniform profile by passing it through a series of mated tool dies (see right).

Roll forming also allows for the addition of holes, notches, slots and embossments – IN-LINE! And, when you work with Dahlstrom Roll Form, you get the advantage of a manufacturer who has the experience to help you realize the maximum advantages of this technology.
