The Rolling Rib makes it possible to create ribs quickly in any location on the sheet. Ribs can be smooth, curved or in virtually any imaginable pattern on the sheet, depending on the capabilities of your programming.
The Rolling Rib tool works by rolling horizontally across the sheet, which not only enables the process to move more quickly than traditional applications, but also to produce more cosmetically polished forms. The Rolling Rib tool creates forms with virtually no burrs or nibble marks.
The Wilson Wheel® family of products offers you flexible, high speed production of embosses, slits, ribs and offsets on a wide range of materials with virtually no burrs or nibble marks. Wilson Wheel tools are a revolutionary innovation in the world of punch press tooling. Rather than punching the sheet in a vertical motion, Wilson Wheel tools horizontally roll along the sheet, dramatically speeding production and creating forms never thought possible in the punch press.
Because of the horizontal movement of the tools, nibble marks, burrs and the usual troublesome byproducts of punching sheet metal are virtually eliminated.
