Development Process

ORTIC has over the years invested in different tools to give customers the best support in 3D roll forming profile design development.


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.
  • The 3D CAD model is scanned in ORTICs own 3D software to create required CAM-data for the FEA (Finite element analysis)
  • 3D forming simulation is performed in LS-Dyna using a customized ORTIC module
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.
Advanced materials such as Aluminium, Titanium base alloys and the highest strength steels are until now tested. The prototypes are made in our own 3D roll former.


Upon customer satisfaction, we move into the machine building phase.
This process is well defined and standardized by ORTIC.

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.
