Picot technology

Three rollers or three-plus-one… many possibilities to make us stand out.

Anatomy of a Picot roll bending machine



One motor (gearmotor) per roller as standard.
Our machines have been equipped with Danfoss motors for over 35 years.
The rotation of the rollers is factory-synchronised by a hydraulic system that prevents any variation over time.

Benefits: maximum torque, optimised efficiency, synchronised speed, reliability.




An incredibly useful technology, with no friction and excellent performance in all operating modes: cylindrical and conical rolling.

It’s also a strategic choice for optimised prebending (on three- and four-roller machines).

Benefits: maximum efficiency of the hydraulic power, no wear.



proportional distribution

All our rollers are equipped with roller position and rotation control with proportional adjustment.

From the standard manually-controlled machine to the machine with a console and Danfoss proportional distribution, the rolling quality is controlled by progressive and very precise movements.

The distributors mounted on our machines are exclusive Picot products developed with Danfoss.

Benefits: progressive movements, quality of sensitive areas, ergonomic for the operator.



  • Hydraulic control (hydraulic valves on standard machines)
  • Digital control of each cylinder to ensure perfect alignment throughout the life of the machine.
    Cone rolling is controlled by these same systems.

Position measurement and control are provided by absolute linear rules: no need for calibration on start-up, and the part is saved even after an emergency stop or a power cut.

The coupled control lever simplifies movements and controls the synchronisation of the prebending rollers using just one hand.

Benefits: efficient manufacturing process, precision movements, ergonomic for the operator.




All of our machines are equipped with bronze bearings that accept high loads during rolling operations.

This technology is unrivalled in terms of both its capabilities and its longevity!
Greasing is centralised and requires no maintenance.




The rollers are made of high-quality steel with selected, traceable properties.

> Custom curves.

> Polishing to guarantee the absence of marks, even on very sensitive materials.

> Induction hardening: hardness 50-60 HRC.

Benefit: custom production.




Monitoring the safety zone around the machine.

Mandatory when using the machine in automatic (CN) mode.

Benefit: optimum safety.
