When manufacturing your specific profile, it is sometimes possible to integrate perforations, holes with or without thread, embossing or even nuts, automatically and precisely into the steel strip at the beginning of the roll forming process – i.e. before the strip of sheet metal is guided in between the pairs of rollers.
Next, the steel strip is shaped into the desired cross-section. Depending on the level of complexity, 60 shaping steps or more are not uncommon.
For closed profile cross-sections, the longitudinal welding method (using laser or HF welding systems) is used during the roll forming to weld the edges of the strip to each other.
Integration into the production process (“inline”) makes the manufacturing of the laser or HF-welded profile tubes or custom profiles especially cost-effective and economical.
High-tensile material or stainless steel can also be formed into complex cross-sections with the tightest tolerances using the roll forming process.
Our advantage: We build our own tools, including particularly sophisticated punching dies, which can handle a considerable number of sizes. This not only means that our profiles can be reproduced in a consistently high quality, but also that you, as a customer, benefit from short response times in the event of short-notice changes.
Roll forming is also an excellent technology for the economical integration of further finishing steps either during or after the forming process.
Diverse laser cutting or welding tasks, end machining, profile bending and joining methods allow us to form the metal sections into semi-finished components that are more readily integrated into your production processes, saving your time and money.
Along with our service package, this makes Welser Profile an all-in-one metal section producer for customers demanding large quantities.
