D&S Manufacturing Adds New Angle Roll  


BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis.—Custom metal fabricator D&S Manufacturing has acquired a new roll bending machine—a 308HV4 Carell Double Pinch Angle Roll—that increases the company’s roll bending range.

The Carell unit is a double initial pinch, universal roll bending machine equipped with three driven rolls. The three shafts are each driven with a direct coupled hydraulic motor and planetary speed reducer, offering 100 percent efficient torque delivery. Powered movements on lateral material guides have been added for increased accuracy and efficiency. The double pinch unit allows for reduced operator handling by pre-bending both plate ends without removing the part.

“We continually consider opportunities to enhance our core competency to provide turnkey custom metal fabrication services to our customers,” said Michael Dougherty, president of D&S Manufacturing, in a press release.

While existing fabrication equipment allows D&S to roll parts up to 10 feet in length, the new Double Pinch Angle Roll is said to significantly increase the firm’s ability to roll thick narrow parts. It will accommodate flat parts up to 5 ½ inches x ¾ inch the hard way, with a minimum diameter of 60 inches and 8 inches x 2 inches the easy way, with a minimum diameter of 42 inches. Along with flat part rolling capability, this unit will also accommodate pipe schedule 40 up to 5 inches, with a minimum diameter of 70 inches, angle leg-in up to 4 inches x ½ inch, with a minimum diameter of 48 inches.

D&S Manufacturing (dsmfg.com) is an ISO 9001:2008 certified custom manufacturer of exceptional quality large scale components, assemblies, and complete weldments. The company’s capabilities include laser, high definition plasma, and oxy-fuel cutting; vertical and horizontal machining; and manual and robotic welding.
