Tube mills and roll forming lines

make a natural pairing.

So do roll forming lines and

tube mills.

The immediate result of considering

these familiar topics in reverse

order is a shift in emphasis: onto

the sheer number and variety of

roll formed products in the world

– from guardrails and door frames

to helicopter blades, conveyor

systems and railway cars.

If there were such a thing as an

endless list, roll formed products

would be a leading candidate.

Another sizable list could be

compiled of the industries that

would be hampered – indeed

crippled – without them.

Of course, the same might be said

of the single pre-eminent product of

a state-of-the-art tube mill. But that

would be to restate the obvious.
