Rolling your stainless-steel products
A number of Dumaco sites are able to roll your metal products for you. This page provides more information about this processing technique. Rolling enables you to easily change the shape of sheet metal. For example, a round, oval or corrugated shape. Or perhaps you’re interested in conical rolling – to create a funnel, for example? That’s possible too.
As you can see, rolling is a handy and very versatile processing technique. For a finished end product, rolling is easy to combine with laser cutting. This is possible for sizes up to 8 x 2.5 meters. The big advantage of this method is that everything is produced from just one sheet. So, without any extra welding. The result: a better quality product.

How does rolling work?
Rolling is done on advanced rolling machines. This processing technique involves the following steps:
- Pre-bending. The sheet ends are bent to avoid the hull having flat ends.
- Rolling. Our experts process the sheets on the basis of the radius specified by the customer.
- Bonding. The hull sections are welded together.
- Skin-passing. This post-processing technique ensures the product delivered is of a very high quality.
