It features unique capabilities and a user-friendly design to revolutionize the metalworking industry.
What Is a Power Rolling Machine?
Also known as a plate rolling or bending machine, a power rolling machine is used to roll metal plates and sheets into various shapes. These include cylinders, cones, and spheres. The equipment consists of rollers powered by an electric motor or hydraulic system. This exerts a force on the metal plate to bend it into the desired shape.
Power rolling machines come in different sizes and designs, from small manual devices used for light-duty work to large industrial machines used for heavy-duty applications. Some machines also have additional features, such as CNC controls, that allow for precise and automated rolling and bending operations.
Additionally, the machines are commonly used in the construction, shipbuilding, and manufacturing industries, requiring metal components with specific dimensions. They are also frequently used to produce pipes, cylinders, tanks, and other elements that need curved or rounded shapes.
Shoemaker’s Four-Roll Plate Bending Machine
The MG four-roll plate bending machine is a versatile and innovative power rolling machine designed to bend metal plates and sheets into various shapes. Its unique design allows the plate to be pinched between the two central-driven rolls. It can also pre-bend the leading edge and roll the part’s body along the trailing edge in one direction and one pass.
Here are some of the advantages of our four-roll plate bending machine:
The bending machine offers unparalleled flexibility in the size and shape of metal parts that can be produced. It can roll sheets up to 4’ wide and 0.205” thick, making it suitable for various industrial applications. In addition, it is equipped with a unique feature that allows for easy changing of top rolls for varying diameters. This ranges from as small as 2.382” to as large as 43.300” in diameter.
Ease of Use and Precision
The four-roll bending equipment is easy to use and operate due to its user-friendly design. It has a CNC control system that enables precise and automated bending operations. Moreover, the machine’s constant clamping of the bottom and top rolls ensures the plate remains square and does not slip during rolling and pre-bending. This results in high-quality and accurate metal components.
The machine can reduce pre-bending time, resulting in a precise and fast production process. This makes it an ideal solution for those who need to produce large quantities of metal parts quickly and efficiently. With the four-roll plate bending machine, it is possible to meet tight production schedules and promptly deliver high-quality products to customers.
