PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. - MetalForming Inc. has become the exclusive North American distributor of variable-profile roll-forming machines manufactured by Taipei, Taiwan-based Sen Fung.

"Leveraging their experience in high-production environments, they (Sen Fung) have managed to elevate quality to a new level while maintaining affordability," said MetalForming President Geoff Stone. "These systems are already top sellers in Europe and throughout Asia."

Instead of a chain-driven power transmission system, each Sen Fung-made machine is equipped with worm gear reduction drive to minimize vibration, ensure an accurate roll speed and deliver a quality product for the operator without scratching and scuffing, according to a company press release. In addition, the gear system requires little maintenance, unlike chain-driven systems, which may vibrate, stretch and break.

To introduce the systems to North America, MetalForming will host an open house this summer at its headquarters to demonstrate the equipment.
