COPRA® RF - Software for Roll Forming

Whole Process Chain of Roll Forming

COPRA® RF comprises the entire engineering process of roll forming - from calculation and flower design to roll tool design, part lists and tool production. Furthermore, a comprehensive database management system for profile and tool management has been integrated. All program modules give access to a central COPRA® RF database.

What is Roll Forming?

Why Roll Forming?

  • High volume production
  • Consistent product quality
  • Minimum material handling
  • Reduced number of labour
  • High tensile material forming
  • Low cost tooling with high tool life

COPRA® RF Modules

The COPRA® RF software package has got a modular structure. This means software and hardware (e.g. COPRA® RollScanner or COPRA® ProfileScan Desktop) can be customized to your requirements. You may start with individual (program) modules and develop YOUR customized solution step by step - according to the growing needs of your customers.

Software Modules from COPRA RF

Software for Profiles, Tubes, Drawn Tubes and Trapezoidal Sections

The COPRA® RF software technology provides a powerful software package for every roll form designer. Design in a professional way for simple as well as highly complex profiles, tubes, drawn tubes and trapezoidal sections. By analysing the strains on the material during the forming process, COPRA® RF DTM enables the designer to determine the proper forming process even before the rolls are physically manufactured.

Simulation of the Roll Forming Process

Easy to Learn

As all other data M programs, COPRA® RF is very user-friendly, easy to learn and guides the operator through the design process. Dialogue boxes offer explanations where necessary.

COPRA® RF is completely integrated into AutoCAD. This symbiotic conception provides the user with the possibility to use all AutoCAD and COPRA® RF functions at the same time. This means high operational comfort and fast access without loss of time caused by switching to other programs or the necessary data exchange.

State-of-the-Art Technology - Worldwide

COPRA® RF is state-of-the-art technology for cold roll formed sections – worldwide. It is the standard tool for designers in more than 50 countries and is available in 10 languages.
