To shape a flat metal sheet into a desired cross section, a roll forming (or rollformingmachine is employed. As a continuous sheet is fed through the rollformer, the edges are bent progressively, yet incrementally, to achieve a final profile that will hold its shape and not distort.

Roll forming lines are machines, upon which long edge profile sheet metal is produced. The fine sheet metal, which is delivered as a coil, can be transformed into the desired complex end product in several seconds using this sheet metal roll form machine. Additional machines are required for the operation of a rollformer.

Roll forming process is used where bending or folding machines are not economical or cannot be used due to the size of the sheet metal. A steel roll forming machine can also be used to produce closed forms like box profiles, and can be used in a large variety of ways. Sheet metal for mining facilities, manufacturers of façade elements, and composite panel manufacturers are all companies that often use roll forming machines. During the production of composite panels, a roll forming line is often supplemented by polyurethane foam machines. A roll forming machine can also be combined with boring tools or punching presses. Metal roll forming machines are most suited for continuously producing series components in large numbers.
