Our top-of-the-art plate roller machines are accessible and energy efficient. Ensure the steel plate bending work of peace of mind and convenient operation. KRRASS’s linear guided machine tools provide multiple benefits to your manufacturing infrastructure: efficient and long-lasting performance, unmatched edge bending accuracy, reduced capital expenditure, and reduced ongoing operating and maintenance costs.
Variable Geometry Design
Plate bending/rolling process
KRRASS’s Variable Geometry machines deliver performance equivalent to that obtained with the more expensive 3-roll plate roller machine and are therefore ideal for medium-to-heavy-duty plate roller machines.
Exceptionally high rolling capacity is achieved due to the variable bending span of the bottom rolls. The rolling power can be 15-20 % higher than linear guideway and swing-guide designs of the same top roll dia machines.
The particular configuration of this design provides for the plate bending rolls to move independently by hydraulic cylinders – the top roll moves vertically; the bottom rolls move horizontally – and are rotated by integrated planetary gearboxes with hydro-motors. This allows for optimal central distance between the bottom rolls and the distance between the bending points offering immense advantages.
- For thin plates, the roll span can be drastically reduced, generating excellent traction, and avoiding driving slippage and spring-back.
- The bending span can be significantly increased for thick plates, thus reducing the bending load and plate deformation.
- Additionally, bottom rolls can be moved independently from each other and can be placed asymmetrically to achieve high-quality edge bending.
Another critical benefit of horizontally moving bottom rolls is that the plates can be fed using a simple unpowered conveyor, saving costs.
The variable geometry machines deliver multiple advantages to your fabrication infrastructure – a remarkably increased rolling capacity, reduced capital expenditure, and lower ongoing operational costs. They are the most attractive investment for heavy plate thickness (Above 80mm) applications.

Build Quality & Benefits
Sturdy Steel Structure
KRRASSs’s sheet metal plate bending machine have a strong steel structure made from heavy metal plates. These frames are connected through a sturdy box design chassis and are equipped with interlocking and stiffening ribs. Rolling guides are machined together utilizing a single fixed reference point, which allows for parallel of all shafts and precision surfaces, as well as the machine’s life and critical precision characteristics.
Rolls Of Sheet Metal Plate Bending Machine
The rolls are the most important elements of our sheet metal plate bending machine. KRRASS designed the optimum diameter roll and used a forged carbon steel roll machined with a high-precision CNC lathe. Our rollers have a unique spline-based design, which effectively connects the rollers with the planetary gear system. This design reduces roll failure points compared to welded connections offered by other manufacturers.
Crowning Of Sheet Metal Plate Bending Machine
Our rolls are crowned to compensate for roll deflection during the bending process. Custom crown-machined rolls for different materials or thickness can be selected when ordering.
Hydraulic Gear System Of Sheet Metal Plate Bending Machine
Additional energy saving is ensured in our 4-Rolls sheet metal plate bending machine by a hydraulic system which can work at less than full capacity when jobs less than maximum thickness are rolled.
KRRASS Planetary driving system ™ used in our machines is efficient and eliminates energy wastage associated with heavy-transmission systems and yet achieves the goal of speed reduction by increasing the stages in gears and pinions.
Edge bending can be done before or after shell rolling depending on operator skill and choice. Thin plates can be rolled and edge-bent in a single pass.
Easy Cone Bending
The cone bending process with the W12 series is simple. The bottom rolls need to be inclined to achieve cone bending geometry. This is controlled and monitored by electronic microprocessor (on some models).
Our control system also ensures easy and accurate return to parallel setting after cone bending resulting into precision on repetitive jobs.
State-of-the-art in forming cylinders and cones.
Easy to install, extremely user-friendly and convenient to service.
Simple to learn and operate. No extensive operator training required.
Robust construction reduces wear & tear.
Readily available spare parts.
Tropicalized oil cooling system ensures non-stop operations in hot working conditions.
Easy to understand hydraulic and electrical system reduce unwanted down time.
Other than cylinders and cones, other non-circular shapes like oil tankers and elliptical shells can be made using a PLC version.
Due to the exceptional build quality, failure-resistant linear guideway design, high operational precision, and a wide range of jobs that can accurately rolled, the F series machines prove to be the most attractive investment for any type of industry, regular production or a job shop.
Due to a variety of accessories that are available to enhance the machine capability, the investment is justified in more than one way. The energy saving features and negligible maintenance cost also promise a low running cost.
