Research is one of the most important parts of the purchasing process, so let’s dive into a common question you might have when researching New Tech Machinery as a potential choice for your portable rollforming machinery needs: Why should I choose New Tech Machinery? What benefits would I get working with you?
Before we talk about the solutions we can offer to meet or exceed your business needs, we first want to say: We understand you have choices out there for your portable rollforming machines and that we’re all trying to gain your trust and business. We know that you need to choose the best manufacturer for your business, your bottom line, and your customers.
In this article, we’re going to discuss who we are and what we do at New Tech Machinery (NTM), so you understand our brand and what products and services we offer and how we can help your business.
Who Is New Tech Machinery and What Do We Do?
Since 1991, New Tech Machinery has provided clients worldwide with portable rollforming machines and equipment for the metal construction industry. We supply contractors and manufacturers with the portable rollforming equipment they need to make their own metal roof panels or seamless gutters on-site or inside their facility. In 2015, New Tech Machinery came into the Mazzella Companies family.
We provide shipping, service, and support worldwide, as well as free training at our factory in Denver, Colorado. We also offer on-site training upon request as an option.
As of 2021, we perform our main operations at our shop and office in Denver, Colorado, but we also have a manufacturing facility in Hermosillo, Mexico, and a distribution center in Switzerland for the European market.
New Tech Machinery Rollforming Machines & Equipment
Since our business started, we’ve prided ourselves on providing versatile and easy-to-use portable rollforming machines and equipment to help metal roof and gutter contractors gain more control of their projects and profits. We incorporate customer feedback in all of our rollformers to make them as versatile, safe, and easy-to-use as possible.
Throughout the years, we’ve offered various machines and rollforming equipment designed for use right at the job site or inside the factory to make your project easier.
Our first machine was the SSP™ Roof Panel Machine. It was manufactured in 1991 and was the first portable rollformer with polyurethane drive rollers and helped revolutionize the portable rollforming industry.
As of 2022, our current list of machines that we manufacture and sell include:
- MACH II™ Seamless Gutter Machines – 5″, 6″, 5″/6″ Combo, and 7″/8″ Combo
- SSR™ MultiPro Jr. Roof Panel Machine
- SSH ™ MultiPro Roof Panel Machine
- SSQ II™ MultiPro Roof Panel Machine
- BG7™ Box Gutter Machine
- 5VC-5V CRIMP™ Roof Panel Machine
- WAV™ Wall Panel Machine
All of our roof panel machines (other than the 5VC) have several different panel profiles/shapes available to help increase your machine’s versatility.
We do not sell or make brakes or shears, provide metal roofing or gutter installation accessories, metal coil or sheets, or gutter drainage components. If you’re looking for any of these items, we’d be more than happy to help you find a supplier.

What Are the Benefits of Working with New Tech Machinery?
Now that you have a better idea of who we are and what we do at New Tech Machinery, we want to talk about what you can expect working with our company.
However, before we do that, we want to emphasize that we know that there are clients who will end up not choosing our company or to purchase from New Tech Machinery. There are many factors to consider when selecting a machine manufacturer, such as warranty, versatility, costs, availability, and durability.
If you decide to choose New Tech Machinery as your portable rollforming machine manufacturer, here’s what you can expect from us as a company and from our products.
Choose from Roof Panel, Wall Panel, and Gutter Machines
No matter if you focus on residential, commercial, or a little bit of both in your projects, we have a machine that will fit your needs. In-plant or portable, if you’re going to use your machine in the field or want to keep it indoors, we have the trailers, carts, and the equipment you need to use your machine the way you desire.
By manufacturing versatile roof panel, wall panel, and seamless gutter machines, you can get precisely what you need from one manufacturer. Our machines come with polyurethane drive rollers and stainless steel forming rollers, so no matter which machine you get, the quality is the same.
Grow Your Machine with Your Business
Your machine can come as sophisticated as you want it or with just the basics. All of our machines come with standard features so that you can get the benefit of having and using a portable rollformer. Also, there are many available add-on options to leverage your machine’s full capacity, save time on your projects, increase efficiency, and maintain safety at your job site.
For example, the automatic UNIQ Control System comes integrated with AppliCad Roof Wizard software. This program allows you to generate a cut list right into your SSQ II Roof Panel Machine so you can make the number of panels you need as well as the exact lengths.
Add-on options like the angle slitter or notcher for the SSQ II MultiPro Roof Panel Machine can help you save time and money on extra tools/labor needed to produce the angle cuts or notches on the panels.
With our SSQ II machine package options, you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank to configure your new machine with the most popular options and still stay within your budget. We have a range of residential and commercial packages for both in-plant and portable use of your SSQ II machine.
While each package gets higher in price, they also include more options for increased versatility and ease of use. You can choose the package you want, based on your business needs at the time, and always add on more features later on.
Service, Support, and Shipping Offered Internationally
No matter your business’ location, we offer service, support, and shipping to domestic and most international locations, either through New Tech Machinery directly or through our network of international distributors.
We have a distribution center in Switzerland to provide easier machine shipping throughout Europe. We can also ship machines to a port or freight forwarder to international locations from our Denver facility. Our service technicians can provide technical support over the phone for most problems or come to your site if you need in-person service (travel expenses are the customer’s responsibility).
Industry’s Best Warranties
Your new portable rollforming machine is a significant investment and essential aspect for your roofing or gutter business, so it’s critical that it performs properly. With all of our portable rollforming machines, we back them with the industry’s best warranties. Warranties on all NTM machines and equipment are limited three-year parts (including electrical).
With proper care and maintenance, our machines can last for 20 years or more, and New Tech Machinery’s very first SSP roof panel machine made in 1991 is still in operation today!
Training at Our Facility in Denver and On-site Training Offered
Whether this is your first portable rollforming machine or you’re a new employee of 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 properly.
We offer a free initial training session at our facility in Denver with any new machine purchase, but we also provide on-site training at your site if you prefer *at an additional cost). In your training session, our service technicians will cover essential aspects, including:
- Understanding your machine manual and where it is
- Setting up your machine
- How to maintain your machine
- Safety practices when operating your machine
- How to perform profile changeovers or make common adjustments
Training is not required, but we highly recommend it so that you can use your machine to leverage its full capabilities and keep your business and employees safe while doing so.
UL 90-Compliant Panels
An important aspect to so many metal roofing contractors is safety standards and industry testing. As a machine manufacturer, while we don’t have an actual process to test our machines, we do offer UL-compliant panels.
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.
Please note that UL certification must be performed on every roof panel machine at regular intervals to produce UL-certified panels. Please check with your local UL office for more information on registering and certifying your machine with UL.
41 Quick-Change Profiles for Roof, Wall, and Gutter Machines
Your metal roofing or gutter business is your livelihood, so it makes sense that you’d want a portable rollformer that is versatile, easy to use, and can increase what you’re able to offer to customers.
In total, we have 41 different kinds of profiles for roof panels, wall panels, and seamless gutters. All of our rollforming machines can utilize multiple profiles, meaning you can use the same machine to make various profiles for each of your jobs. You also don’t have to waste time changing to a different profile — you can change a roofing panel profile in 45 minutes to one hour (or less) with minimal equipment using our machines.
Some of the profiles our machines can make include:
- Mechanical Seam Roof Panels
- Snap-lock Roof Panels
- Fastener Flange Roof Panels
- Flush Wall and Soffit Panels
- K-Style Gutters
- Box Gutters
Some of our machines can even make popular specialty panel profiles to give a unique look for your metal roofing projects:
- SSQ275 2″ Snap/Seam Profile – This proprietary panel profile can be both mechanically seamed and snap-locked.
- TRQ250 2.5″ Trapezoidal Panel Profile – The style is excellent for commercial and industrial buildings and is a mechanically seamed panel with an anti-capillary leg.
- 5V Crimp – Our 5V Crimp profiles are available in 21″ and 24″ widths and can be rollformed using various metal types.
- WAV Wall Panels – This panel is a great choice for architectural building applications and comes in two styles: with flange and without flange.
