    Material-saving solutions in the raw materials crisis

    Price explosions and supply difficulties for sheet metal are leading many companies to put their parts production to the test in order to save material and costs. Roll forming is increasingly being discovered as a manufacturing process, which in some cases enables weight savings of over 50 percent.

    Efficiently to the ready-to-install profile

    Why modern roll forming lines are an energetic and economical alternative for sheet metal workers who produce finished profiles in small batches. And why Profilmetall’s roll forming modular system is particularly well suited for this purpose.


    Flexible for energy saving

    Energy efficiency in manufacturing is becoming an increasingly important factor when it comes to competitiveness. In this context, roll forming offers real advantages as a cold-forming technology. With the Xellar rollforming line, Profilmetall – thanks to clever energy management – adds one more on top. This is not the only advantage the line offers.

    Ministry of the Environment awards efficiency prize of the KEFF network for exemplary entrepreneurial commitment

    Profilmetall GmbH from Hirrlingen has a broad portfolio ranging from the development of innovative profiles to the worldwide logistics of ready-to-assemble profiles. After the KEFF check, the company implemented energy efficiency measures from several fields of action. The company optimised directly the process and the building. The compressed air compressor and the compressed air ring line were optimised and the system was equipped with an intelligent control system. The motor control on the production equipment was improved. The lighting has been completely replaced by LEDs, and an intelligent control system is used here as well. The company also relies on heat recovery, electric mobility – including forklifts – and involves the 64 employees in the search for and implementation of efficiency measures. The company saves about 300,000 kilowatt hours per year through the implemented measures.
