Yoder M-Series Roll Forming Systems

Yoder M-Series Roll Forming Systems are one of the most popular and copied mill stands in the world. Highlights of these systems include:

  • Drive housing encloses all gears in oil tight case.
  • Precision Timken tapered roller bearings (inboard side).
  • Roller bearings, rotating in hardened sleeves (outboard side).
  • Features toggle-link gear train to maintain full gear mesh through entire top roll shaft adjustment.
  • Outboard housing removable from ends of roll spindles and adjustable laterally on spindles. This permits most advantageous support of roll shafts during forming of narrow sections.
  • Alloy steel roll spindles, carburized, hardened, and ground.
  • Hardened hex-type clamping nuts.
  • Micrometer screws to facilitate accurate adjustment of spindles after roll changes.
  • Toggle-type idler gears permit maximum roll adjustment but maintain constant gear mesh.
  • Chain-type flexible coupling interconnects worm shafts of individual roll stands.
  • Top driven idle gear mechanicals available.
