The key principle for cold forming by Nieland is the combination of rolling (local stretching) and bending in one hydraulic portal press. For this, the portal presses SBP can easily be equipped with an optional rolling unit PWU.

As cold forming is a skill, Nieland provides local on-the-job trainings for the operators, because of which, production can be made as per the day of commissioning.
