How to choose the right plate rolling machine?
With the aim to best satisfy every application requirement, BIT’s line of various types of plate bending machines offers a simple and efficient means to roll your metal plate materials.
The best way to determine the best sheet or plate rolling machine for the job is to find out what various machines can do. Remember, machine capacity is important, it must match your material, and most plate roll manufacturers can provide detailed capacity-versus-yield tables to assist you. There is also the pre-bending ability of the rolling machine is also very important, the pre-bending ratings are lower than the rolling capacities for any given machine.
You must be mindful when reviewing machine capacities that the maximum rolling capacity is usually expressed with the basic requirement of multiple rolling passes and very long unbent flats. You also must note the material thickness and width and equipment characteristics such as cylinder diameter, machine type, yield, and diameter of rolls.
By obtaining that information, you can properly size and select a plate roller to fit your particular bending application.
Of course, you can read our recommendations for plate roll bending application below, it will also provide a better reference:
The PRA initial pinch bending roll, PRD bending roll with a double pinch, PRS 3-roll pyramid bending roll, or PR4 four-roll pyramid bending roll will be bending for bending thin plates in a reliable and economical manner. For rolling thicker plates, BIT produces and offers three different models: PRT 3-roll bending roll with top roll variable geometry, PRV three-roll variable geometry bending roll, and PR4 four-roll pyramid bending roll.
