Roll Forming Capabilities

Johnson Bros. Roll Forming Co. is proud to offer high-quality custom roll forming services for customers in a range of industries, featuring state of the art inline press punching equipment.

Our ISO 9002 compliant fabrication methods including inline press fabrication: insertions, swedging, punching, deburring, pointed tube ends, slotting, inline miters and close tolerance cut to length. We also produce expert quality low tolerance miniature parts, and offer some flat and shaped wire forming techniques including straightening, skiving, edge rolling, cut-to-length, and ring forming inline and as an option pre-edge rolled stock. At Johnson Bros. we have over six decades experience in tubing production, including the versatile lock seam tubing, which we run faster than our competition and open seam. Sizes of roll formed components can be in up to 36′ in length, and .187″ to 20″ in width, with thicknesses of .005″ to .188″, formed from a number of material options including steel, special alloys, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper, bronze, Inconel, titanium, wire cloth, martensite, cor-ten, high yield and high strength, Clad Metals, Flat and Shaped Wire among others. We are recognized for our advanced production abilities as non-ferrous materials specialists.

On-site machinery features press capacity from 5 to 100 tons, and spindle diameters from 1″ to 2.5″. On smaller, thinner parts we can maintain tight tolerances of 0.005″ during production, with capabilities to meet 0.002″ and larger parts and thicker materials wider tolerance ranges. Inline fabricating tolerances can be narrow on inline post punch or wider using inline pre-punching. Available finishes including pre-galvanized, pre-painted, pre-anodized, pre-plated, pre-polished, pre-perforated, pre-lacquered, pre-laminated vinyl, clad, pre-embossed, and strippable PVC over many.

Johnson Bros. Roll Forming specializes in component parts for type 1, 2 & 3 traffic safety barricades. Specifically barricade leg angles in 11-14 gauge steel, galvanized, galvannealed and/or painted. Supplied with or without end miter, holes or slots. Standard and custom hole sizes and patterns available. Type 3 includes tubing or all as angles in a welded assembly. Some material in stock, blanket orders accepted. Many other roll formed parts produced.
