The rolling process opens up the options to use various different metal grades that may usually be found as a round tube only. The flexible tooling enables small batch production, fabrication repairs and prototyping without the extra costs.
The minimum quantity for a re-profiling is just 1 length of round tube.
The profiling machines can produce from 1mtr up to 5.8mtr lengths, depending on size selection, material grade and thickness.
We will advise on the maximum length when quoting.
For greater quantity production we are able to manufacture the profiles as a cold drawn direct at our Mill source. This reduces costs further and also enables a higher level of quality control in terms of each individual lengths properties when produced.
Materials available for re-rolling and cold drawing are commonly:
