The Bradbury Group offers a line of roll forming machines that can help take some of the challenges out of manufacturing deep profiled metal building gutters and square downspouts. These profiles are often produced on folders and can be difficult to handle because of the long lengths required. Square downspouts typically get seamed or riveted during a secondary process because it is not a capability of the folder.
