Deciding on a method to shape metal for your next fabrication project can be a difficult endeavor. Quality is paramount, but it’s important to keep costs down. Ultimately, there are several factors to consider if you’re debating the merits of using roll forming or press braking on your next metal fabrication project. In the end, your decision will likely depend on the answer to this question: which method will yield the desired quality for the lowest overall production cost? Continue reading as we compare roll forming against press braking and analyze the impact each process has on design and project cost.
