Understanding the relationship between the elevation of the entrance guide and the shape of the roll formed strip is crucial to satisfactory roll forming. The entance guide elevation, if improperly set, can cause the strip to bow and twist as it leaves the first forming pass. Setting the elevation properly can help to eliminate additional stress and strain at the strip edges that cause bow and twist.
