Embossing is a metal forming process that corrugates a series of straight or parallel ridges onto a metal sheet or strip. Although some embossed patterns are simply decorative, one major benefit is that embossing increases the strength-to-weight ratio of the formed sheet metal.
Lighter gauge material can be purchased and then embossed to provide adequate strength requirements. Embossing can be done by either stamping or rolling. The rolling method is faster, as it uses mating pairs of rotary tooling to do the embossing, thus completing the task at a much higher speed. The sample Roll-Kraft Embossing Rolls shown on this page were used to produce diaphragm panels for the construction of water towers. These Embossing Rolls produce continuous rows of 24 embossments rolled in on 2 separate stations of 12 each. The upper and lower rolls are keyed and timed, using timing gears, to ensure proper alignment through normal continuous manufacturing runs. Roll-Kraft Embossing Rolls are segmented and can easily be removed or replaced, if they become worn.
