Complete Manufacture of Bespoke Roll Forming Tools
B&B often work from customer drawings, existing rollers or can design new tooling from scratch. Using state of the art COPRA software we are able to offer full design and simulation. We utilise Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for bespoke roll form design applications. This software simulates the tooling design before manufacturing begins. We can better predict specific problems associated with mill configuration, material properties, and reshaping before production begins.
B&B are able to work with a wide variety of materials, sizes and specifications when it comes to the manufacture of Rolls. We can work in materials including: Nylon, Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel, Aluminium Bronze, and Ceramics. We also have a particular niche in Hard Turning of Tool Steels, Tungsten Carbide and Powder Metallurgy Steels. We are able to turn materials up to 70HRc.
B&B have manufactured Rolls for a wide variety of cold forming applications including Wire Drawing, Purlin Manufactures, Structural Components and Metal Processing.
Alongside our ability to turn hard materials, B&B also have full metal spraying facilities in house. Metal Spraying allows us to coat rollers in highly wear resistant materials such as Tungsten Carbide, Chrome Oxide, Stellite 6, Alumina and Inconel. Not only does this allow us to coat a cheaper base material with a hard layer, but we can also repair worn/scratched and scored rollers back to size and then grind back to tolerance.
We have a CO² controlled spray booth with a KUKA robotic arm ensuring maximum quality, and have our own onsite laboratory.
