Roll Forming

A touch of quality

From the beginning, Brad and Vicki McDonald realised that to give local Mallee farmers and businesses exactly what they wanted it required a significant investment in technology.

With the latest Dual Level Roll Forming equipment, McDonald Steel today produce quality corrugated or t-deck iron, which can be cut to length.

What is Roll Forming

Roll forming is a type of rolling that involves the continuous bending of a long strip of sheet metal, such as coiled iron or steel, into a desired cross-section.

The strip passes through sets of roller dies until the desired cross-section is obtained. This is called a profile and can be used for walls, cladding and roofing.
