Roll Bending Services

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 other project, we guarantee a quick turnaround and cost-effective pricing.

Rolled Parts & Applications

Plasma cutting creates a cost-effective way to cut thicker metals, and develop them into final components for usable parts and structures.

The chassis we fabricate are typically used to house electromechanical controls, from small handheld devices to large industrial testing equipment. All chassis are built to critical dimensions to ensure hole pattern alignment between different parts.

TMT builds custom brackets and miscellaneous laser cutting components. Our capabilities allow for fasteners and additional conveniences to be built-in to almost any manufactured part. 

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.

Metal Finishes for Rolled Parts

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. 

Also called “Bead Blasting,” this finish creates a smooth matte appearance on metals.

Parts and applications may have an anodized finish for a wide variety of custom colors, which may include clear, black, gold, or desired custom colors.

  • – Type II Anodized Finishing creates a finish that is resistant to corrosion.
  • – Type III Anodized Finishing creates a thicker finish that is more wear resistant than its lesser option.

Powder coating is a painting process where powdered paint is sprayed on a part or application prior to heating. The result is a strong layer that is more resistant to wear and corrosion.

This process also allows for a wide selection of colors for the further  customization of color.

 

Also known as Chem Film or Chemical Conversion Coating, this metal coating provides corrosion resistance and conductive properties. This coat may also be used as a base for painted or color finishes.

 

If a custom finish is required for an order, or the finish is not listed on our site, please include this information when requesting a quote. We can likely still complete the project.
