Standard Profile Engineering Guide [Free Download]

Posted by Hynes Industries on December 3, 2014

standard-profile-guide.pngEngineers today face ever-shortening product lifecycles, accelerations in technology, and the pressure to do more with fewer resources. It’s time to work smarter, not harder.

Our free engineering guide is now available to download, and can help you save both time and money. Engineering drawings and section modulus requirements expedite product development and optimize designs for roll forming, reducing costs lost to scope creep, material costs and unnecessary design complexity.

Design for Roll Forming

Roll forming continues to prove its application across industries, due to its ability to fabricate custom shapes that are light and strong, eliminate secondary operations and achieve economies of scale. Product designs should be reevaluated in order to maximize roll forming's benefits.

Key considerations when designing a roll formed part include:

  • Geometry. Take advantage of roll forming’s ability to form uniform cross sections.  

  • Length. Consider how the product will be impacted by coil-fed processing to maximize yield and reduce drop-off.  

  • Material. Most coiled material can be roll formed, and in many cases, aluminum extrusions can be redesigned using lightweight steel.

  • In-line processing. Redesign parts to utilize roll forming's in-line processing capabilities.

Our guide includes standard roll formed profiles that can be easily inserted into many applications.
