M SERIES ROLL TOOLING STANDS
The Metform M-series roll form tooling stand was originally designed over 40 years ago. It is still and industry standard today. Originally a cast steel design it was converted to a fabrication to increase strength and reduce cost. It was the first stand to feature the “removable top cap” allowing for loading and removal of a full “chock and shaft assemblies” onto the stand. The other key feature of this stand is a separate bottom chock versus a “fixed” bottom shaft. This allows for flexibility in shaft alignment and special circumstances where the bottom shaft needs to be raised or lowered.
- 1 ½” to 8” shaft diameters
- Removable top cap
- Removable outboard stand
- Outboard split nut
- Split shoulder spacers (setup shoulders without removing rolls)
- Inboard tapered roller bearings
- Outboard needle bearing
- 4140 arbors, ground finish
Although Metform’s industry unique PS series is most popular today, the M-series stand is still a viable option and primarily used in heavy gauge applications where shaft sizes are over 5” diameter.
