Metsec Profile Manipulation specialises in precision bending metal profiles into finished components for the production of ROPS / FOPS safety cabs and frames for agricultural vehicles, excavators, construction vehicles, electric vehicles and fork lift trucks.
Part of the Engineering Products division of Metsec plc, a voestalpine group subsidiary, the company supplies major global industrial vehicle manufacturers with standard and irregular shaped welded tubes and frames. Metsec Profile Manipulation's product range also extends to rings for liquid tankers and structural components for commercial vehicles.
As well as bending safety frames, the company can offer a one stop shop by offering a wide range of additional manipulation services including fabrication, laser and plasma cutting, sawing, mitre cutting, drilling, milling, sweeping, ring rolling, welding, press work.
Metsec Profile Manipulation has recently commissioned a new three stack bending line to provide extra capacity at its 3800 m2 manufacturing facility in the United Kingdom enabling it to offer more flexible delivery lead times thus helping to reduce stock inventories for customers.
The company has developed its own technology to handle a range of materials including mild and stainless steels and aluminium. Advanced, high strength to weight ratio metals, such as micro- alloyed and high tensile steels which can provide the additional strength required for safety frames and cabs. Section sizes up to 150mm diameter and up to 6mm thick steel are available, with tolerances of within 0.5mm.
As part of its complete service, Metsec profile Manipulation works closely with customers' design teams to develop and test their concepts, using 3D modelling software to simulate bending of profiles. Full prototyping services are also available.
