Roll-Kraft facilities in Mentor, OH., Frankfurt, IL., and Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada, will each expand their manufacturing capabilities with the addition of machines in each plant to aid in meeting the demands of roll forming companies and tube & pipe producers. The Illinois and Ontario facilities will add CNC (computer numerical control) machines, while the headquarters location in Ohio will install a new wire EDM machine (electrical discharge machine).

The technology of these machines will eliminate several processes in the manufacturing of tooling for the tube & pipe and roll forming industry. They will reduce manufacturing time, while allowing for better tolerance capability in the final product. The new EDM machine will make it possible to burn taller rolls, up to 15.5 inches in height. In addition, the Woodbridge location will hire new personnel to handle the increased capacity their new machine brings.

Roll-Kraft Ltd. is a satellite location of the Roll-Kraft company in Mentor, OH. All engineering is handled by the headquarters in Mentor, however, identical manufacturing processes are provided at both locations. In addition, Roll-Kraft operates a regrind center at their third location in Frankfurt, IL., to address quick turnarounds and emergency regrind services often needed by tube & pipe producers and roll forming companies.
