i) Cold roll forming is the most efficient method of converting sheet steel into desired shapes through a gradual process of bending by a number of specially designed rolls mounted on a cold forming mill. The technology has many advantages over the conventional press brake method of forming namely:
ii) Cold working capitalizes on the steel's tendency to become harder and stronger when formed while cold. This gives an added advantage to cold formed sheet steel because the shaping process actually makes the part stronger. It achieves a better consistency and accuracy of profile.
iii) The possibilities of producing the variety and range of shapes are almost unlimited, determined only by the number of stations available on the mill and the ability of the tool designer. Indeed some shapes can not be produced by any other method.
iv) Cold roll formed sections do not suffer from the length constrains and can be supplied to your exact requirements. In addition to the universal profiles, like channels and angles, the cold-formed sections offer tremendous potential for cutting cost, through superior design of shapes and flexibility of sizes.
v) We, at Frontline, have the ability to design and also have manufacturing capacity to offer many innovative solutions in specific application areas, like factory building structural, conveyor systems, material handling, pallet racking systems, porta cabins and truck chassis members etc.
