Custom Rollform Products manufactures a wide variety of Tangent Formers, Wingformers, & End Forming Units. They can be used as Free-Standing Manual Feed Units or incorporated into an Inline Fabrication System to final-form the part.

Because of their design, Tangent Forming Units wingform or endform Sheet Metal Flanges or Housings.  This is done while holding the part or panel in the horizontal flat panel position. They can be a Primary Free-Standing Forming Unit.  They also can operate in conjunction with a Rollforming System to Endform the leading and trailing ends and / or final-form the part into a Full-Wrapper Housing or Cabinet.

Many applications utilize a Rollformer to form the continuous linear flanges of a part and use a Tangent Endformer to close the end sections. Parts like Shelving, Partitions, Drawer Bodies, and Cabinets are just a few of the products that can incorporate Tangent Forming Applications. Besides Endform Operations, Tangent Forming Units can final-form sections into two-sided, three-sided, or four-sided Full-Wrapper Cabinet sections. However, items like Air Conditioners, File Cabinets, Refrigerators, or Vending Machine Cabinets can be formed in a variety of configurations.

On-Time Production System

In a Complete On-Time Production System the Tangent Former can be completely sequenced and programmed to feed, form, and eject a variety of Cabinet Configurations with little or no setup. The Endformer will form pre-rollformed Panels into final-formed three-sided Cabinets in five different depths, four widths, and two heights. The Outer Rams will form a 90° flange on both ends. The Inner Rams will form the Cabinet into a three-sided Wrapper. The parts are threaded directly from the Feed Conveyor, formed then ejected onto the next Conveyor to the Assembly Area.
