Tools form parts with short, tapered flanges
FAB Supply Inc. has made design changes to its Rolla-V tooling line. The tools can be used to form a greater variety of material thicknesses, and components have been redesigned to deliver increased angular accuracy and angular repeatability.
The forming action of the dies allows fabricators to form parts with short and tapered flanges. Manufacturers also are able to produce parts with features such as holes and slots near the bend line with little to no distortion or part marking.
