Many years ago, the conveyor industry asked us to solve the problems of excessive run-out, poor quality, long lead times and indifferent service they faced when buying tapered rollers from manufacturers using rotary swaging, mandrel spinning, and hydro-forming. They wanted to avoid tooling costs. They wanted greater design flexibility. They wanted shorter lead-time and lower costs. Companies producing belt curves wanted a process capable of producing one-piece tapers in diameters of 5″ and above.

We gave them AirForm® – the revolutionary forming technology invented by Bryant Products. AirForm® provided all that the conveyor industry asked for and then some: no hard tooling, the ability to produce any taper angle, reduced costs and set-up charges, and far greater precision and quality than anyone thought possible. We can produce tapers, concave, convex forms compound tapers, waveforms and cylindrical shapes with single or multiple crowns or grooves. AirForm® offers TIRs as low as .010 and is capable of producing tapers with major diameters of 5″, 6″, 7″, 8″ and 9″ and lengths up to 82″ using tubing with a wall thickness as thick as .250″.
