I must commend you all for helping me satisfy my curiosity about the Olive machine principle.

I was really curious about the outcome. An interesting contribution to look at shaping.

Thank you all for your thought cooperation. This sharing of ideas improves our shaping capabilities and practices and saves our time for unnecessary research and blind directions. I really appreciate it.

The fairy tale had a good end ..

So its just a giant bead roller? The in-feed out-feed tables do not impart any bending?
No, the metal is stretched on the outside causing it to lengthen and given the profile of the roller, creates a reverse. The center of the panel is not stretched as much or at all, depending on the tension.
