Modern thread and profile rolling offers many advantages for the production of a wide range of solid and hollow components, compared to traditional metal cutting methods.
Threads and profiles are stronger, consistently accurate and there is no swarf. When solid components are produced, the form is rolled from a blank with a smaller diameter than the finished piece; with hollow products the starting diameter can usually be maintained or allowed to increase as required.
ORT machines have sold in large numbers over many years. Manufactured at a modern plant in northern Italy, they are the products of a fifty-year programme of continuous research and development; and represent the optimum in thread and profile rolling technology.
The ORT range currently includes over 30 models, either PLC or CNC controlled.
The standard Two-Roll machines are designed to roll solid workpieces with rolling pressure from 10 to 150 tons, with variants for Spline Rolling and Valve Straightening.
Three-Roll machines are used for both solid and hollow components, have pressures ranging from 10 to 150 tons and variants include High and Low Fin Tube Rolling machines.
The range is completed by the LE Series of Burnishing machines, which provide high quality superfinishing on precision products up to 150mm diameter.
