Roll Forming Training and Education
Are you tired of walking out to the plant and finding out the mill is down again?
A variety of reasons can lead to roll forming mill failure, but often times, it comes back to one issue: a lack of proper operator training.
It's clear that roll forming training and education has become a major part of any roll forming operation. People who handle the day-to-day tasks, such as roll forming mill setup, mill alignment and roll tooling maintenance, need to have the best tools and training for the job.
Our experienced staff at Roll-Kraft have heard and seen it all. We have been doing roll forming training seminars for over 30 years. This is why Roll-Kraft will not conduct any training until we fully understand your expectations. This is extremely important due to the types of training we offer: hands on training, right on your roll forming mill, in the classroom with visual aids, or both. We will even train your staff on why roll tooling is designed in a certain way.
Roll-Kraft's roll forming seminars are designed to present universal facts and procedures, matched to the experience of your group, and develop a standard for your particular company. The "art" of roll forming is combined with a scientific approach, which results in faster and more predictable setups and makes troubleshooting an easier process. We pride ourselves on the development and implementation of methods that have proven successful and reliable in the industry.

Roll Forming Training and Education: Seminar Preparation
Programs are traditionally held in a conference room, lunch room, or training facility at your plant. “In-house” seminars allow the greatest opportunity for maximum attendance. Prior to the seminar date, a 2-crate display with the visual aids will be shipped to the seminar site. Our trainer will arrive and set up the display the day before the scheduled program.
Your site should be able to accommodate a P.A. system, 6-ft. square screen, slide projector, marker board, tooling, and other supportive equipment. Each attendee receives an individual Seminar Guide Book. Our program is one of the most comprehensive and successful ways to train your personnel.
Our trainer will also tour your factory, taking time to review the configuration of your mills in order to best customize the presentation.

Roll Forming Training and Education: Seminar Agenda
Each attendee must be registered prior to the day of training, so adequate supplies are available. There will be approximately 4-6 hours of classroom study and adequate time allowed for questions and answers and input from the audience. Content of the program can readily be adjusted to focus on areas of your local interest.
The afternoon session involves a walk to the mills on the shop floor, when feasible, where the methods taught in the classroom can be fully demonstrated, “hands-on,” and all questions answered. This will cement the concepts discussed throughout the day and move the theory of the training to the reality of the mill.
Each attendee will be awarded a certificate of completion, which will be mailed after the seminar. This will provide documentation of training to satisfy the ever-challenging quality requirements of your customers.

In order to maximize this opportunity, a wide variety of personnel should be in attendance. There will be information applicable to many areas of operation. You will want everyone involved to be working together to achieve a better quality product in less time.
