MAXON is assembling a new quick-change c/z steel purlin roll forming machine which was designed to produce 100-300mm size steel c and Z channels from 2-3mm Galvanized steel materials.
This roll forming machine produces steel c and z channels completely automatically including roll forming, punching holes and cutting, but the manual operation is required to switch from C to Z (simple operation may take around 15 minutes), and to adjust different sizes (auto/electrical adjustment is optional and can be provided as per request).
Compared with separate C purlin roll forming machine or Z purlin roll forming machine, this machine can make both C&Z steel channels with variable sizes, it requires less operation space, and costs less money (than buying a c purlin machine and a z purlin machine). The only black side of this machine is less production capacity, because with one c purlin machine and one z purlin machine, customers can make both C purlin and Z purlin at the same time, while only C shaped beams or Z shaped beams can be produced only at one time on this c/z purlin quick-change roll forming machine, and it means as long as there is some breakdown in need of repairing, the production has to be stop for both C&Z.
Which solution is better for me, to get a c/z interchangeable machine or separate c purlin machine plus a z purlin machine? That depends, and you may find an answer at article: ALL-IN-ONE ROLL FORMING MACHINE VS MULTIPLE SINGLE LAYER ROLL FORMING MACHINES.
