The rollforming machine from New Tech Machinery will allow them to create new panel profiles! 

Chicago Metal Supply has recently acquired another piece of rollforming machinery that will allow them to create more variety of their own new panel profiles. The machine from New Tech Machinery (NTM) , the SSQ II™ MultiPro roof panel machine, features a variety of perks that will allow the CMS team to create the best products for both their residential and commercial customers. Here’s a closer look at the details:  

  • Features additional seam reveal options 
  • New 2-inch double lock profile, in addition to CMS’s existing 1 and 1.5-inch profiles 
    • CMS will now be able to offer clients a taller seam option which better accommodates lower pitched roofs as it is more watertight 
    • The 2-inch profile is a valuable one to have in the Midwest, specifically in Chicago, where snow and ice often sit on roofs for long periods of time out of the year  
    • While the seam is more visible with a 2-inch profile compared to a 1-inch on elevated roofs, it creates a more aesthetic look that is pleasing to some owners on taller roofs  
  • This machine offers additional striation options  
    • Striations help with a metal’s rigidity and oil canning but also offers more options for the design aspect of the job 
  • This machine travels on a heavy-duty trailer and is gas powered, which allows CMS to service customers anywhere and everywhere, and is a great addition to their portable rollforming lineup  
  • SSQ II™ MultiPro can handle up to 22-gauge steel and 0.40 aluminum 

With these new features that the SSQ II™ MultiPro offers, Chicago Metal Supply is ready to take on new and exciting projects that this machine makes possible. With this machine added to their lineup, CMS is ready to offer a more diverse range of panel options that fit more customer aesthetic preferences!
