Designing Roll Forming Tooling has never been Easier!

Welcome to our first event in a series of exciting roll forming events during which we will show you why COPRA has become indispensable in today’s roll tool design and simulation world:


For roll formers worldwide an easy and efficient design and development process is vital for staying competitive. Our state-of-the-art software allows you to easily immerse yourself in the world of roll forming and sustainably secure the roll forming knowledge within your company.

Using a roll formed profile as an example, our design engineer Lander Arrupe will show you in this 20-minutes workflow demonstration how you can make the design process as effective as possible by using COPRA RF and how you can save cost and time by simulating the production process in COPRA FEA RF.

Lander will guide you through the forming process in COPRA RF. The software gives you the right tool to develop your perfect forming strategy by using parametric roll design and 3D view rolls, as well as a fast and effective flower creation with Spread Sheet and DTM (deformation technology module).

For the verification of your forming strategy, Lander will show you, how easy it is to create a FEA model and interpret your simulation results for understanding possible defects in your roll design. Thanks to numerous auxiliary functions and analysis tools, no specialized FEA knowledge is required.

Through the intelligent interconnectedness of our COPRA products, simulation results will be available for design review immediately.
