Experience Hassle-free Bending

Our top-of-the-line Plate Bending Machines are designed for hassle-free usage and energy saving features; to ensure peace of mind and operational ease for plate bending jobs.

The variable geometry machines deliver a multiple advantages to your fabrication infrastructure - a remarkably increased rolling capacity, reduced capital expenditure and lower ongoing operational costs. They prove to be the most attractive investment for heavy plate thickness (Above 80mm) applications.

Plate bending/rolling process

Himalaya Variable Geometry machines deliver performance equivalent to that obtained with the more expensive 4-roll plate bending rolls and are therefore ideal for medium-to-heavy duty rolling.

Exceptionally high rolling capacity is achieved due to variable bending span of the bottom rolls. the rolling capacity can be 15-20 % higher than linear guideway and swing-guide designs of same top roll dia. machines.

The special configuration of this design provides for the plate bending rolls to move independently by hydraulic cylinders – the top roll moves vertically; the bottom rolls move horizontally – and are rotated by integrated planetary gearboxes with hydro-motors. This allows for optimal central distance between the bottom rolls and the distance between the bending points offering immense advantages. 

For thin plates, the roll span can be drastically reduced, generating excellent traction, and avoiding driving slippage and spring-back. 
For thick plates, the bending span can be significantly increased thus reducing the bending load and plate deformation. 
Additionally, bottom rolls can be moved independent to each other and can be placed asymmetrically to achieve high quality edge bending.

Another key benefit of horizontally moving bottom rolls is that the plates can be fed using a simple unpowered conveyor, saving costs.

The variable geometry machines deliver a multiple advantages to your fabrication infrastructure - a remarkably increased rolling capacity, reduced capital expenditure and lower ongoing operational costs. They prove to be the most attractive investment for heavy plate thickness (Above 80mm) applications.

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 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 variable geometry 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. 

Operational Benefits

Operational Benefits

Pre-Pinching  (Pre-Bending)

The pre bending operation does not require the plate to tilt below the feeding level saving handling time. 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 V series is simple. As the bottom rolls move horizontally, plate feeding is highly convenient. Only the Top roll needs to be inclined to achieve cone bending geometry. This is controlled and monitored by electronic microprocessor (on some models).

Our control system also ensures accuracy on repetitive jobs and easy return to parallel setting after cone bending.

High Productivity
  • 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. The machine can also be used as a heavy-duty press brake for other forming operations.

  • 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.
