Fabrication equipment can be expensive and when a machine goes down, your production can come to a halt. Buying a new shear or press brake can really tax your budget, so buying used machinery may be a great option for your fabrication business or machine shop. While band saws, shears, and press brakes may crowd the fabrication equipment category, there are plenty of other items to be found. There are also hundreds of items coming in daily so you never know what you may stumble across when browsing HGR Industrial Surplus.
A quick category search came across a few power rolls, roll formers, a riveter, and a coil reel. Not to mention your typical fabrication equipment. Let’s look at a few.
Roll formers are used in a process of the continuous bending of sheet metal, strip or coil stock. This process allows operations like notching, punching, and welding to be performed in-line. Roll forming has been around for a very long time, dating back to as early as 600 BCE in the areas of the Middle East and Southern Asia. They were using the basics of what we would come to know as a rolling mill. The more streamlined mills that are more familiar today started to surface from DaVinci’s drawings and were created across Europe and Britain. This history has set up the industries in which roll formers are used today.
Coil reels are another great item you will come across in HGR’s fabrication category. According to Warehousemachines.com – Coil is a type of conductor wire, such as copper, in a form that is cylindrical. It is wrapped around an iron core which creates an inductor or electromagnet that stores magnetic energy. Companies that focus on coil processing solutions cater to various metal-working industries around the world since they are aware that one size does not fit all. In process applications, it is the energy transfer efficiency that is the most important performance factor for coils. You can see what types of coil reels HGR currently has in stock to help your company.
