Development Process

The Future Technology

3D Roll Forming is the next step in material forming process development.

The reliable ORTIC product and machine development process

ORTIC has over the years invested in different tools to give customers best support in the 3D roll forming profile design development and production process.
All together ORTIC is your partner from Idea to Turn key machinery and Highly efficient production.


The analysis process begins together with customer designer to make a profile suitable for 3D roll forming.

This often gives the designer an increased understanding of our 3D roll forming technology and differences in the design characteristics unique for 3D roll forming compared to other cold and warm forming technologies.
  • ORTIC 3D SW for scanning of the 3D CAD model to create FEA analyse CAM-data
  • ORTIC FEA module in LS-Dyna for 3D FEA simulation of the forming process
When the FEA is made we also know the machine set-up needed to produce the profile.


When the FEA is finalized and the CAM-data is fine-tuned, we are ready for the next step in the development process.

Using new or if possible existing tools we are ready to create the customers own prototype in the material needed.
Materials such as Aluminium, Titan and the highest strength steels are until now tested. The prototypes are made in our own 3D roll former.


When you as customer are satisfied, we move into machine building.
Also, this process is well defined and are built up with ORTIC modelized system.

The machine is manufactured according to ORTIC drawings and equipped with Bosch Rexroth PLC-system, Drives/controls and Mechatronics.
All for best roll forming performance and most reliable long-term productivity. The control system, using Bosch Rexroth technology, is called ORTIC AdvantRoll

Long term reliable production

The machines are Internet connected and uses latest Industry 4.0 features from Bosch Rexroth as well as Bosch Rexroth equipment and all together this gives the customer a reliable solution prepared for ORTIC on-line or on site software support as well as entrance to Bosch Rexroth World Wide Support for Mechatronics spare parts.
