New Ring Roll and Cut off design completed using SolidWorks 11

Boxer are in the process of building a ring rolling machine to produce curved segments of varying diameters from 50mm up to 1m

The ring roll assembly sits at the end of a rollforming head which is producing a shallow top hat profile. This profile is then ring rolled using a combination of cold reduction and ring roll pressure before it passes through a hydraulic shear tool to be cut to length. Several digital indicator adjustments are used to fine tune the diameter and the length is controlled by simple HMI entry which passes information to the PLC.
