Formtek Solutions for the Appliance Manufacturing Industry

Formtek and the Appliance Industry

Formtek’s roll forming solutions for the appliance industry offer the ability to roll form parts in stainless steel, embossed material, pre-painted, and other materials, supporting a wide variety of parts. When your appliance manufacturing needs change, Formtek meets that need with the ability to allow for programming adjustments for rapid change when manufacturing multiple lengths and changes that accommodate multiple pre-notch, mid-notch, and cut-off dies. This ability allows our customers the flexibility to manufacture several different models using similar parts.

Formtek also has the engineering experience to design the flexible solutions required for supporting the multiple sizes and configuration of today’s refrigerators, dishwashers, cooking appliances, furnaces and air conditioners. For many appliances, the heat transfer element (condensing or evaporating) may utilize welded tubing — very similar to an automotive fuel line. Through our Yoder brand, Formtek has developed a Cold Reducing Tube Mill which produces small diameter tubing for these applications. We’ve also developed solutions to produce evaporator or boiler tubing like the Yoder M-Series, QVW-Series, and WH-Series machines. For welding, the Yoder Square Wave ERW welder provides a ductile heat affected zone of the tube, appropriate for the bending required to produce the coiled tube required for these thermal transfer applications.

Whether it is flexible fabricating or roll formed products, Formtek can engineer and build a complete manufacturing system, from coil or sheet handling through finished product, for your application.

Consolidate Notching and Fastening Operations

The systems can be complex, involving multiple notching, bending and/or roll forming machines with welding, such as the production of office furniture wall partitions. Such systems may eliminate a dozen or more manual operations. Digital controls and batch production capabilities can allow the process to vary position and quantities of engineered features without setup time.

Eliminate Multiple Press Brake Operations

These integrated roll forming and flexible fabrication systems from Formtek can be as simple as manufacturing roof panels or shelves by hand feeding metal sheets into the roll former.
