The panel roll former PANROL is used to produce reveal panels from cut-to-size sheets or metal panels. This machine is also the basic machine for other versions of the panel roll former.
The infeed width is continuously variable from 230mm to 510mm to cater for a wide range of applications. The coverage of the profiled panels produced by the panel roll former in a parallel run cater for a seam loss of about 110mm, ranges from 120mm to 400mm. A single sided run can produce conical, oblique panels or standing seam sheets from a centre to centre distance of 120mm. The length of the shortest panel is approx. 800mm. The production rate is 14 meters per minute.
The profiling unit (tie-bars) with 16 shaping levels are supplied on a welded, torsion-proof steel frame that also has fork lift pockets to simplify transportation. The machine is equipped with four adjustable feet for stationary applications in a workshop. The strip or sheet material is guided by lateral intake guides on ball-bearings on the fixed as well as the adjustable side. A spindle moves the guide on the right edge to separately adjust the expansion gap width. The profile rollers are made of high quality special steel and surface treated. This special treatment provides the rollers with a high level of corrosion and wear protection. The adjuster for the clamping edge is mounted in the discharge area next to an exit guide. This helps to balance tolerances in the sheet thickness.
After adjusting the infeed guides to match the width of the cut the profile shaping drive is turned on via the main switch and the cuttings or panels are then fed manually into profiler while the drive runs. Turn the machine off when you have completed your work.
Optionally, the panel roll former can work on material supplied by a coil when it is equipped with a hydraulic half-section shear or a circular hand saw to cut the required length. Another option is to add a folding tool to produce folded edges or a rotary punch.
