Share Article

Roll-Kraft announces the release of the Metal Roll Forming Solutions Forum, Volume 2, with information regarding calculating estimated strip widths for roll formed cross-sections.

A new issue of the Solutions Forum is now available on the Roll-Kraft web site. This issue provides information and solutions to roll forming companies regarding calculating estimated strip widths for roll formed cross-sections.

All roll formed cross-sections consist of at least one bend and most have a combination of bends and flats. The process of calculating a strip (blank) width essentially involves estimating the arc length (neutral line) of the bends and adding the sum of these bends to the lengths of all flat surfaces associated with the finished cross-section.

The full article provides further detail, including diagrams, for the proper calculation of a strip width.
