Plate rolling or perhaps bending work?
What do you think? The sheets in the attached photo are 8 mm thick. Are they rolled or folded?
If I tell you that a sheet is 8 mm thick…
Think about it from a technical viewpoint: thick sheets should always be rolled on a sturdy plate bending roll - i.e. larger rolls. There is no standard length plate rolling machine with rolls of e.g. 150 mm that can roll an 8 mm sheet... So yes, we folded these sheets using our special bending technique and did not roll them.
Time and again we need to convince prospects that bending segments into shape may not necessarily produce visible and folds... Obviously, if the segment does not go sufficiently through the folding process, it will be angular. Consequently, when preparing a quotation, it is important to check how many folds are required over the entire circumference. Creating a perfectly round shape is however possible.

Alinco manufactures pharmaceutical furniture regularly. Since we provide tailor-made solutions, everything can be adjusted to your wishes. You can submit your own design or, in consultation with you as a customer, we can develop a design to meet your specific needs.
The piece that you see here is a FIFO cabinet on wheels with transparent sliding doors for the high-quality storage of DN25 valves. It was designed by Alinco at the customer’s request. The valves are suspended in the rail system with dividers. These illustrate the precise bending work provided by Alinco. This cabinet meets all the customer’s specific requirements, such as hygiene standards, stability, accessibility of the rails, possibility to extend the number of shelves, and so forth.
