Company: Roll-Kraft, OH, United States
Attn: Chuck Gehrisch

Roll-Kraft again leads the field by bringing new technology to the tube and pipe and roll forming industry in the United States. By incorporating the first U.S. installation of the COPRA FEA RF software, Roll-Kraft will now be able to test tooling on a virtual mill prior to actual tryout.

This simulation will allow for quicker analysis of the roll forming process on the screen instead of on the shop floor. The COPRA FEA RF software provides our engineers with critical information about forces, torques, and stresses, and provides 3D-visualization of the final product, indicating areas of possible deformations. Strain distribution, forming length, and strip movement can now be
perfected prior to manufacturing, allowing for precision setups once the tooling is installed. These techniques provide the fastest route to producing a quality product the first time.

The engineers at Roll-Kraft are well-educated and experienced in the design and implementation of custom tooling for the tube and pipe and roll forming industry. The addition of this technology is another step in keeping Roll-Kraft at the top of the field using the latest
technology available to the industry, and provides yet another reason to choose Roll-Kraft as your next tooling or equipment supplier. We can save you time and money, virtually.

Roll-Kraft has its headquarters in Mentor, Ohio, and maintains offices in Frankfurt, Illinois (Roll-Kraft Northern). We can be reached by phone at (440) 205-3100, or fax at (440) 205-3110. Please also visit our web site at
