Roll-Kraft plans to expand its manufacturing capabilities in its facilities in Mentor, Ohio; Frankfurt, Ill.; and Woodbridge, Ont. The Illinois and Ontario facilities will add CNC machines, while the headquarters location in Ohio will install a new wire EDM.
The new machines will eliminate several processes in the manufacturing of tooling for the tube and pipe and roll forming industries. The EDM will make it possible to burn taller rolls, up to 15.5 in. high. The Woodbridge location will hire new personnel to handle the increased capacity the new machine is expected to bring.
