Articulating Roller Forming

B-125

B-125

The Orbtiform B-125 Roll Forming Machine is used when a forming a groove in a part or when there are obstructions to clear in order to form a lip. Articulating roller heads make 360-degree contact from the side to consistently create the formed area. Orbitform's articulating roller heads can deliver forming forces up to 5,000 lbs @ 100 psi.

Please download the models and drawings needed from the "CAD Drawings" dropdown menu on the left. You will need to download the proper bench and powerhead files required for your application. The tooling for this process is very specific to your part and therefore are not available.

  • Precision control

Options

SERVO ADJUSTABLE HARD STOP: Automatically set the stroke length with a servo and adjust stroke between cycles.

OFFSET MOTOR MOUNT: Offset the motor from the powerhead, freeing up space for more mounting options or process monitoring

CLUTCH BRAKE: Stop the spindle from spinning without shutting down the powerhead motor

GEAR REDUCER: Finely tune your powerhead speed to better control the process.

PROGRAMMABLE HEIGHT SENSING PRESSURE PAD: Work with other process monitoring to provide precision when compressing stacked parts.

LVDT STROKE MONITORING: Monitor stroke distance and increase precision and consistent head forming.

ANTI-ROTATE DEVICE: Keep the peen from rotating.

LOADCELL FORCE MONITORING: Force readouts and process optimization.

REMOTE STROKE ADJUST: Allows for access to the stroke adjust knob when the standard location is difficult to reach.

THROUGH SPINDLE PRESSURE PAD FOR ROLLER HEADS: Compress part prior to forming to ensure proper assembly and maintain consistency.
