      Hi everyone, i'm new here on this forum. I'm from Argentina and i'm working on a new project for my company, AdBarbieri. The project is about roll forming, to reduce the time. Here on the production plant we have a roll or paster with iron sheet which unroll the sheet so it can pass trough the forming process. The problem is that the unroll process takes a lot of time and i know that in Europe, being more specific in Germany there is a technology of nonstop welding which reduce considerably the time. This technology mix the end of one sheet roll with the beguinins of the otherone.
      Any answer you can give me i will be grateful. I hope you can understand my problem and also my hard english because i'm not good enough.

      The more time consumption in the process can be reduced by increasing the sheet feed rate and the welding speed. If unrolling itself takes more time, then you can check the bearings, or any parts in process line which might have failed partially or fully to render the intended function.

      Thanks for your reply, i understand what you mean but we have al that functions optimized, what we are looking for is a technology that other companies have, we saw that in Protektor, german company of iron sheet profiles. They have somehow to weld the end of one roll and the beginning of the otherone and that how they never stop the roll forming process. i hope you understand me, thanks!
