Other ProcessesWednesday, August 23 at 1:00 PM EST Brian Rodgers, Senior Application Engineer of Formtek and leaders of the FMA (Fabricators and Manufacturers Association) will share the benefits of roll formed metal products in the following webinar. Have you ever reviewed metal building products and got stuck trying to decide whether to use roll formed metal or another metal product? Roll forming isn’t just a technical process—it requires a thorough business case before getting started. Understanding the direct and indirect costs can help you determine whether a part should be roll-formed, or if it’s best manufactured by some other process; whether you should tackle the project yourself or purchase roll-formed profiles from an outside vendor; and how the new project will affect staffing levels and other operating parameters.
