The new roll-forming machine has been built by Roll-A-Rack manufacturing partner, New Tech Machinery in Denver, Colorado.
Like seamless rain gutters, which are cut to length on each installation site by a portable roll-forming machine, Roll-A-Rack produces custom solar racking on-site and on-demand. The new system aims to simplify the solar racking supply chain, eliminate waste and speed up installation time.
“Roll-A-Rack brings a solar racking factory to each installation site,” said Don Scipione, company president and founder. “There are dramatic savings in time, planning and material costs, and the system accommodates all those inevitable last-minute design changes.”
Roll-A-Rack is seeking 10 developers or solar installers to help refine the installation processes. For more information about becoming a beta tester, visit the company’s website, email firstname.lastname@example.org or download the informational flyer.
Roll-A-Rack product development research is funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office.
