Roller forming

The forming process is achieved by molded rollers which are mounted on a rotating spindle and unroll themselves on the part to be formed.

This deformation allows tight angles and good surface/lip seating – thus resulting in good sealing qualities. Roller Forming is ideally used for applications when thin material walls and large diameters are present. When processed with a riveting peen, such pieces tend to bulge or collapse.

For each specific application, BalTec will construct an individual rolling head. Work pieces define the design and execution of the roller head such as dimensions, number of rollers and rotation speed.
