We're a small shop and we're looking to purchase a machine to roll parts.
I'd need something with the capacity to roll 1/8 inch aluminum. Width wouldn't need to be more than 18 inches--the more, the better but not necessary. Manual (hand crank) is also fine.
Do any of you know of a slip roll that would handle 1/8 aluminum, or is my only option a plate roller? There's a pretty big jump in price from slip rolls to plate rollers, and I can't justify the cost of a plate roller.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,
