Our metal rolling services (also called roll bending) at TMT Fab provide precision results to fit the needs for almost any project. We can accommodate parts of all sizes and production volumes. From prototypes to large quantity production runs, we can work with you no matter the size of your order.
Each metal plate or sheet we work with can be rolled to any custom dimension, thickness, or specification. Through the metal rolling process, we are able to produce components such as tubes, pipes, beams, and other structural pieces Just like with any of our other sheet metal fabrication services, we guarantee a quick turnaround and cost-effective pricing.
About Our Metal Rolling Process
Metal rolling is the process of taking sheets of metal and running them through a rolling machine to reduce thickness and guarantee that the sides are uniform all around.
When it comes to classifying metal rolling, it is all based on the temperature of the metal rolled. There are two types of classifications: hot rolling and cold rolling.
Hot Rolling is when the temperature of the metal is above its recrystallization process (typically above 1700ºF). Higher temperatures make the metal much easier to shape and form. Hot-rolled metal is used for a variety of different industries such as railroads and construction. It is commonly used in production runs where precise shapes and tolerances are not necessary.
Cold rolling is when the temperature of the metal is below its recrystallization process. This process increases the strength of the parts by up to 20%. Under cold rolling, surface finish is improved and the products are able to hold tighter tolerances. Typical products produced from cold rolling include steel sheets, rods, strips, and bars.
An as-milled option is viable for quick turnaround and parts that do not require visual appeal. Leaving the parts with an unfinished surface with visible marks from machine and potentially rough or sharp edges.
At TMT, our intention is to provide the absolute highest-quality service in everything we offer. Which is why we provide same-day quotes on our projects. Each quote is priced competitively and guarantees quick turnaround time on production runs.
Our metal rolling services produce high-quality products for both low and high quantity assembly runs. We offer metal rolling all over the U.S., and with each part produced, we guarantee the highest-quality parts, competitive pricing, and quick turnaround for each project we take on.
