|Roll-Kraft is pleased to announce the release of the new Portable Hemming Unit. |
Hemming units are essentially portable roll forming machines that form 180-degree hems on the edges of a flat strip of metal. Hems are primarily found on lighter gauge material to either strengthen the profile and/or improve safety, when handling.
Typically, the hems are formed before the metal strip is introduced into the roll forming mill or another forming process. Most hems are small (to reduce the amount of material required) and can be formed in four stations.
Hemming units can be configured in numerous ways, such as:
Driven (with overriding clutch or continuous drive)
Mounted directly onto the existing roll former base
Freestanding, fabricated base
Variable product widths quick change
Single or double hem
Roll-Kraft Hemming Units can be designed and built to suit almost any hem requirement.
Roll-Kraft Hemming Units are constructed using:
Fabricated plate steel housing assemblies
Spur gear train
Hardened tooling spindles (overhung)
Adjustable top spindles with micrometer dials
Built-in material entry guide
Hardened tool steel rollers
Optional quick change width adjustment with digital indicators
Another advantage of integrating a Roll-Kraft Hemming Unit into a roll forming system is to save you money. There are numerous occasions when an existing roll forming mill does not have enough forming stations to produce a particular hemmed cross-section. Instead of purchasing a new mill or mill extension, a Roll-Kraft Hemming Unit can be an affordable solution. Also, the portability of these units allows them to be moved from mill to mill, when multiple hemmed profiles are produced.
