Yoder Forming and Fabrication for Shelf and Pallet Rack Manufacturing
Manufacturers trust Yoder’s experience and expertise to deliver top quality, high-precision metal forming and fabrication solutions to produce their products. Yoder has been a solution provider of roll forming systems for shelf and pallet racking for decades. Yoder has the engineering experience to design the flexible solutions required for supporting the exacting tolerances for today’s applications. Yoder offers multiple roll forming solutions for the vertical posts, lacings, and basket components that are required for storage and pallet racking.
Yoder Tube and Pipe Solutions for Shelf and Pallet Rack Manufacturing
Yoder has long been recognized as one of the earlier pioneers in the welded seam tube mill business. Yoder offers multiple standard tube mills for common product sizes. In addition to the standard machines, Yoder also offers specialized equipment that covers a huge diameter range of metal tubes and pipes, from the 3/16″ (4.76mm) O.D. cold stretch reducing mills to the 28″ OD cage mills.
For storage and pallet racking, the frames of the shelves are produced using a step beam tube. Yoder’s flexible forming mill for welded Step-Beam profiles offers the ultimate in changeover between step beam sizes, for efficient production while minimizing setup scrap and changeover time.
Yoder Processing Styles
Blank Fed Roll Forming
For the pallet racking manufacturer that currently produces posts, braces, and step beam by notching precut strips then forming with a brake press, the addition of a roll former can increase production volume without increasing labor. Formtek has produced a solution for making step beam in a single piece from precut strip; the part can be finished welded along with addition of the end brackets in an offline fixturing operation. Leveraging the customer’s existing strip notching capabilities, the processed strips can be fed to a stand-alone roll forming machine to produce the net shape in place of the slower and material handling intensive press brake process. The roll forming machine can be changed over between toolsets for production of posts, braces, or step beams.
Coil Fed Roll Forming
In the higher volume production environment, the roll forming machine is integrated with inline notching and cut-to-length equipment to produce in a batch production environment, where multiple lengths and hole patterns are required in varying quantities each day.
For over 100 years, the most respected names across multiple industries all over the world have relied onYoder roll forming machines and systems for their manufacturing processes. And the reason is simple — from our standard machines to our customized systems that are designed and built for your specific application, Yoder solutions can save you money while producing a better product. We also offers a full line of cutoff presses including heavy-duty mechanical presses and our patented Air Press. Learn More

Integrated Systems From Formtek
As a part of the Formtek family of metal forming and fabricating solutions, Yoder systems can be seamlessly integrated with B&K, Dahlstrom, Hill Engineering, Lockformer Custom Machinery, Tishken, and Winpro solutions to deliver optimal results for your operations.
Roll Forming & Flexible Fabrication Systems
Formtek can integrate multiple fabricating processes and systems from B&K, Dahlstrom, Hill Engineering, Lockformer Custom Machinery, Tishken, Winpro, and Yoder to streamline and reduce the labor in your manufacturing operations. 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.
