Roll Tooling

Formtek’s staff of tooling engineers has a century of experience in design of complex roll formed shapes, tube and pipe needs.  Utilizing this experience, along with the latest CAD software, to design the tooling specific to each application.  In addition, all the tooling that is designed by Formtek is made by Formtek. We have a complete machine shop equipped with the state-of-the-art multi-axis CNC turning centers, EDM machine and high speed finishing lathes.

Finally, Formtek has a variety of roll formers at our facility to test tooling sets prior to shipment. This service ensures an acceptable part before the tooling ships. For a listing of the machines available for sale in our inventory.

In addition to the design and manufacture of new and replacement tooling, Formtek also provides an extensive service of regrinds, for the tube and pipe industry, as well as high volume roll forming and flux cored wire applications.  In addition to regrind services, Formtek can provide value added engineering, to apply wear resistant coatings, or modify designs of existing tooling sets, to accommodate new material requirements.

CAPABILITIES

Unlike most competitors all our Roll Tooling is designed and built in house at our facility in Cleveland, Ohio. We have a complete machine shop equipped with the state-of-the-art, five-axis and high speed hard turning lathes.

DESIGN

We have available the most advanced roll design software package in the world to aid design of roll form tooling. The design software allows our designers to perform stress analysis of the metal as the forming process takes place. This feature enables the designer to determine the proper forming process before the rolls are even manufactured.

EXPERIENCE

Having the best software is not enough though. The software is only an extension of a good designer. Fortunately, Formtek’s design team is not only experienced but also knowledgeable. If Formtek can’t do it, nobody can!

TRYOUT

Finally, we have a variety of in-stock roll formers available to test each set of tooling prior to shipment. This service ensures an acceptable part before the tooling ships.

REGRINDS

For high volume and abrasive environments in roll forming, tube and pipe, it is necessary to redress tooling periodically. Formtek offers regrind services to regain the original tooling roll contours.  Unlike competitors.  Like all aspects of our equipment and tooling, Formtek takes an engineer approach to Regrind service, including scaled drawings with reground tooling dimension, so if you break a roll, it can quickly be replaced with accurately sized roll.
