What is Roll Forming Plus? Custom Roll Forming and Roll Forming Services

OMCO roll forms millions of feet of product each week, and nearly every item we ship requires some type of additional manufacturing operation in order to produce the finished part. Requirements may include a unique hole pattern, a special punch out, a notch to allow a fold later on, a fastener, or any other modification imaginable.

The efficient integration of custom roll forming services with additional metalworking, fabricating and finishing operations is what we refer to as “Roll Forming Plus”. Some “Plus” operations are performed right in-line with the roll forming mill while others are done after the roll forming is complete and the part has been cut to length. Here is a list of the more commonly utilized “Plus” operations.
