What Is a Portable Metal Rollforming Machine?

A portable metal rollforming machine is a condensed, easily transportable piece of machining equipment used to rollform metal coils or sheets into desired shapes. The metal is fed through a series of forming rollers and forming stations where the metal coil or sheet is manipulated into a specific shape or profile.

Portable metal rollforming machines can be powered by either gas or electric, making them more efficient and convenient.
