Custom Roll Form Channels - High Volume-Image

Custom roll formed channels can be made from coils of aluminum, steel, brass, bronze or copper. Sometimes costly secondary operations can be eliminated by incorporating them in-line. Economical production quantities typically begin around 5,000 lineal feet for profiles with existing tools. If new tooling is necessary, an annual volume of 30,000 lineal feet is a good benchmark to use to justify the investment. Channels can be integrated into framing systems and used for grating projects, clamping applications and protecting edges. Depending on the profile, gauges range from 0.005" to 0.165" and are run in widths up to 48".
