Roll Forming

Whereas the extent of automation in plants relative cutting machine tools is rather large, automation with respect to forming machines is still rather limited. Due to the large number of varying parameters for formed materials, an automation tool of high flexibility is required. The variety of currently available microcomputers offers powerful such automation tools. The present paper surveys some of the forming processes that have become automated in the past few years, and others that are to be automated in the future.
