Himalaya’s Linear Guided Machines deliver at par performance and flexibility at much lower costs compared to the more expensive 4-roll plate bending machines. They are also extremely durable and accurate compared to swing guide machines and are therefore ideal for medium-to-heavy duty rolling.
The bottom rolls in our linear guideway machines, are positively guided in the machine frames. The axis of bottom rolls is closer to the top roll. The close spacing between top roll and bottom rolls improves circularity of the rolled shell. Hence accuracy of resultant job is better than swing guide or variable geometry machines.
Our design ensures that the bending forces are directly transferred from cylinders to rolls, as no linkages are involved in our design. Hence, there is no wear and tear of the guideways and roll parallelism is maintained. Compared to this, the swing-guide design transfers the load to the links on which the rolls are hinged which are weakest part of the joint and can result into increased chances of fatigue and failure.
The front and back frames of our machines are cut and machined together as a single piece. This leads to an extremely accurate alignment of the guideways in which the bottom rolls move. This results in excellent precision of roll movement and superlative bending quality.

Build Quality & Benefits
Sturdy Steel Structure
Himalaya machines have a robust steel structure made from heavy metal plates. The frames are connected to each other by a strong box design chassis. The frames have interlocks & strengthening ribs. The roll guideways are machined together utilizing a fixed single reference point which allows for parallelism of all axes and precise surfaces, as well as longevity and precision of the critical characteristics of the machine.
The rolls are the most important elements of our machines. Himalaya designs the rolls with optimal diameter and uses forged carbon steel rolls that are machined by high precision CNC lathes. Our rolls have a special spline-based design that is extremely efficient in connecting the rolls with the planetary gear system. This diminishes points of roll failure compared to welded connections provided by other manufacturers.
Our rolls are crowned to compensate for roll deflection during the bending process. Custom crown-machined rolls for different materials or thickness can be selected when ordering.
Hydraulic Gear System
Additional energy saving is ensured in our three roll machines by a hydraulic system which can work at less than full capacity when jobs less than maximum thickness are rolled. Twin speed operation also reduces the energy consumption up to 50% when slower operating speed is selected.
Himalaya Planetary driving system ™ used in our machines is efficient and eliminates energy wastage associated with heavy-transmission systems and yet achieves the goal of speed reduction by increasing the stages in gears and pinions.
Pre-Pinching (which is also known as Edge bending) can be done before or after shell rolling depending on operator skill and choice. Thin plates can be rolled and edge-bent in a single pass.
Easy Cone Bending
The cone bending process with the K series is simple. The bottom rolls need to be inclined to achieve cone bending geometry. This is controlled and monitored by electronic microprocessor (on some models).
Our control system also ensures easy and accurate return to parallel setting after cone bending resulting into precision on repetitive jobs.
State-of-the-art in forming cylinders and cones.
Easy to install, extremely user-friendly and convenient to service.
Simple to learn and operate. No extensive operator training required.
Robust construction reduces wear & tear.
Readily available spare parts.
Tropicalized oil cooling system ensures non-stop operations in hot working conditions.
Easy to understand hydraulic and electrical system reduce unwanted down time.
Other than cylinders and cones, other non-circular shapes like oil tankers and elliptical shells can be made using a PLC version.
Due to the exceptional build quality, failure-resistant linear guideway design, high operational precision and a wide range of jobs that can accurately rolled, the K series machines prove to be the most attractive investment for any type of industry, regular production or a job shop.
Due to a variety of accessories that are available to enhance the machine capability, the investment is justified in more than one way. The energy saving features and negligible maintenance cost also promise a low running cost.
Alongside our excellent design and build quality, we provide the following additional features and accessories upon request from our client.
Induction Hardened Rolls having Surface Hardness between 42 to 55 HRC for additional durability and longevity.
Tilting tables for support while feeding plates at specific angles. Specially useful for plates of larger lengths.
Interchangeable Top Rolls
Interchangeable top rolls to add versatility to your large size machines for rolling small diameters shells. For e.g. interchangeable top roll of 350 mm diameter, on a machine having top roll of 470 mm diameter.
Powered Conveyors that provide ease of plate feeding in case of longer plate lengths, improved machine performance and longevity.
Central & Side Shell Supports
Central & side shell supports provide ease of operation, operational cost saving and productivity while increasing safety of workers.
PLC Controllers provide precision, ease of operation, while identifying needs for preventive maintenance to increase machine life and optimize productivity.
