Rolling is a shaping of the plates enable the manufacturing of shells, cones and conical heads for process equipment (heat exchangers, reactors, packed columns, tray columns and stainless steel tanks).

Labbe made the choice to internally ensure this manufacturing in order to propose the shortest delivery time. Once dished heads are manufactured, after checking and reading of the developed heads, shell plates are directly laser or waterjet cutted in order to be internally rolled.
