I found a couple pics of the guys roll forming "I" beams on the horizontal roll.
These are smaller I beams, they can do much larger.
It just amazes me that they can bend these to such a tight radius with a nice smooth curve.
They could do rail tracks of any size the same way.
Yup, Italian made. I have rolled 2”x 3” 1/8” rectangular tubing, 4” channel, 2” angle and flat bar on edge. 480v 3ph. Had 10 hours when I purchased it from a locomotive refurbishing facility. The only used it for profiling hand rails. Came with a nice compliment of dies and spacers. I have to use a step up transformer with the rotary phase converter but it works well. Never have rolled coils but seen some cool videos.
I am retired from the Australian metal fabrication / welding trade.
In our neck of the woods,the machine was referred to as a section roller.
The section reference was undoubtedly due to the material cross section. For example angle iron that the layman refers to is Angle Section in our trade parlance.
