ENGINEERING

We can support you in many aspects of the development of a profiling system. From process development and simulations to pilot production, we can help you with expertise.

System Control

The decisive interface for the interaction between man and machine is the human-machine interface (HMI). As experienced rollformers, we also think of our control concepts consistently from the user’s point of view. Modern sensor technology and process support are fundamental principles of this way of thinking. To this end, we have mastered the interfaces with both Siemens-based and Bosch-Rexroth control solutions.

With our intuitive human-machine interface (HMI), you get the benefits of modern digitality for ease of use and maximum functionality. The customer-specific applications and processes can be optionally added – just like apps.

The software coordinates all relevant production parameters. It provides real-time information on all plant parameters clearly displayed on a monitor for the

  • evaluation of production processes and process parameters
  • management of product variants such as hole patterns and length variants
  • integrated quality inspection

Because in the end, profiles are as good as the perfect synergy of man and machine. That is smart profiling!

DATA MANAGEMENT

Production data serve many companies as a basis for important decisions and help to upgrade a wide variety of processes. The data dashboard meets all Industry 4.0 requirements.

It includes the clear display of warning and error and status messages and provides an overview of upcoming scheduled maintenance. Furthermore, the traceability of programme changes plays a central role and the notification function enables shortest response times and a fast transfer of diagnostic data to remote support & troubleshooting. We help you harvest this data and process it profitably.

Your advantages:

  • Open interfaces for your internal IT connection such as BDE or ERP systems
  • Visualisation of status information
  • Future compatibility also for existing systems

Test execution, sample parts and pilot series production

We accompany you on this path and, in cooperation with our partners, can offer you a manageable time horizon until you have the first components of your new products in your hands. We also support you in carrying out trials and testing your components until they are released. We are happy to validate our simulations in expedient test runs so that no questions remain unanswered.

Your advantages:

  • Bridging delivery times through rapid pilot series production
  • Provision of sample components and support during testing
  • Trials to clarify open questions

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Turnkey projects are a comfortable way to productivity. From 40 years of contract profiling and plant engineering, we understand your needs in terms of speed, quality and efficiency.

We are happy to support you with goal-oriented project management or as a general contractor with overall responsibility as a reliable partner at your side. Contact us and together we will find a “turnkey” machine solution.

Your advantages:

  • Access to experienced project managers as project companions
  • Turnkey systems and uncomplicated commissioning
  • Reliable contact for all matters relating to your project

PROCESS DEVELOPMENT

Method planning in forming technology production is decisive for the economic success of your products. Expand your manufacturing possibilities with us. We will also find efficient and resource-saving roll forming solutions for you for extruded sheet metal products or those manufactured by manual bending. We advance your process development and provide you with a customised process layout for the manufacture of your products.

We will be happy to review your existing processes with you with regard to optimisation potential and increase productivity, quality and even resource efficiency for you.

Your advantages:

  • Customised process layouts for your technical processes
  • Screening of optimisation potentials
  • New perspectives on long established processes

Simulation

Virtual method planning by means of FE simulation offers precise insights into the forming processes of your components. In addition to the analytical design of production processes, process simulation or FEA (Finite Element Analysis) complements the planning of manufacturing technology. The numerical mapping of the ongoing forming processes offers detailed insights into the material-technical conditions through the evaluation of stress diagrams, strains or, for example, targeted sheet thinning.

Profilmetall Engineering has the most modern analysis tools and the corresponding expertise at its disposal for process simulation. From forming simulation from the coil to the manufactured profile or a load simulation of the finished component (component and product simulation), we are happy to calculate and analyse the answer to your questions.

Your advantages:

  • Insight into the basics of forming technology without complex test set-ups
  • Support in virtual method planning
  • Reliable statements on the manufacturability and feasibility of your products

TECHNOLOGY CONSULTING

With the combined expertise of over 40 years of contract profiling and profiling plant construction, we can advise you on many issues relating to your roll-formed components.

In feasibility analyses, we provide advice and assistance in the process design of production processes as well as process selection. We are happy to start with you as early as the product design stage, but we are also happy to take care of optimising set-up times and automating your production processes in order to implement an increase in productivity. Repeat quality and tool life optimisation are not neglected in the process. Benefit from our process and design consulting and contact us.

Your advantages:

  • Support in process design from planning to implementation
  • Feasibility studies and technology consulting for your individual components
  • Optimisation and automation of your existing systems

Tools

The product can only be as good as the tool used to produce it. As a machine manufacturer and user of the most diverse technologies, we see our tools from different perspectives and can perfectly analyse and understand the needs. That is why we place the highest value on the quality of our tool systems and components.

In the Technology section you can see the variety of processes for which we offer tools. The systems can be seamlessly integrated into our plants as well as the control system and offer all users the best possible comfort.

  • Design and manufacture of tools and tooling systems according to your requirements
  • Commissioning and testing of the tools
  • Tool development for special processes possible
