Corrugator Tool


What is a Corrugator Tool?

The Corrugator tool is a specialized device designed made of aluminium for crafting scale corrugated metal sheets. These sheets mimic the appearance of real-world corrugated iron, commonly used in construction and industrial settings. This ingenious device allows you to produce scale corrugated metal sheets up to 7.5 cm wide with ease, adding an authentic touch to your projects. 

How Does the Corrugator Machine Work?

The corrugator machine works by pressing a thin metal foil, like flexible tin foil corrugating it into a corrugated pattern, providing model builders and hobbyists with a simple and effective way to add realism to their creations.

Using it is quite straightforward. Here's a step-by-step breakdown of how it works:

  1. Choose Your Material: Begin by selecting a suitable material. Different types of cardboard can be used but the winner for the realism that it conveys will always be flexible metal foils, such as flexible tin foil. These materials are pliable and ideal for achieving the desired corrugation effect.
  2. Set it Up: Cut the material Adjust the rollers or other settings to accommodate the width of your chosen material.
  3. Insert the Material: Carefully insert your chosen metal foil, ensuring that it is properly aligned and centred for an even corrugation.
  4. Crank or Roll: Activate it by cranking or rolling it. As you turn the handle, it will impress a wavy pattern onto the metal foil, creating a realistic texture.
  5. Trim and Shape: Once you've finished adding the texture to the entire length of your material, carefully trim and shape it to fit your project's needs.

Remember that whether you stretch it or compress it, accordion effect, you can slightly modify the width of the texture being able to get closer to the size of one or another scale, and can therefore be used for different scales of modelling.
