MAF’s CNC operated plate rolling machine can roll flat sheets into radius bends, oval, tubes etc. The roller can roll up to 2m long and on average ¼” thick. The shorter the material length is, the thicker the material can be (the length may allow for a material thickness to be greater then ¼”). The computer operated rolling machine is programmed through a CAD system that gets transferred to the machine to minimize set up time. The CNC plate roller calculates many factors that could influence the bend:
- Yield tensile strength of the material
- Length of the material
- Thickness of the material
- Radius of the material
- Once the machine preforms its calculations, it will replicate the product in the future.
