If you are considering New Tech Machinery for your portable rollforming equipment, what can you expect? Let’s explore what we can offer your contracting or manufacturing business if you choose NTM for your metal roofing or gutter equipment.

Take Advantage of Portable Rollforming Training

If this is your first portable rollforming machine or you’re just starting at a company that has been using this equipment for years, hands-on training is the best way to learn how to operate and take care of your portable rollformer safely. 

We offer a free initial training session at our facility in Denver with any new machine purchase, or you can purchase on-site training at your shop or business if you prefer. 

In a training session, you’ll learn:

  • How to understand your machine manual and where it is
  • How to set up your machine
  • How to maintain your machine
  • How to operate your machine
  • How to perform profile changeovers or make common adjustments 

Training is not required, but we highly recommend it so that you can leverage your machine’s full capabilities and keep your business and employees safe while doing so.

Offer Your Customers UL 90 Compliant Panels

An important aspect for many metal roofing contractors is safety standards and industry testing. As a machine manufacturer, we don’t have an actual process to test our machines. However, we do offer UL-compliant panels. 

UL compliance is different than UL certification. UL compliance means that our panel profiles are manufactured to the proper dimensions set forth by Underwriter Laboratories (UL) and their standards per specific construction numbers. At New Tech Machinery, we provide panels in compliance for use in UL 90 Construction Numbers. 

By providing you with compliant panels, it’s just one less step you have to take if you want to get your panels certified with UL.

UL certification must regularly be performed on every roof panel machine to produce UL-certified panels. Check with your local UL office for more information on registering and certifying your machine with UL.
