Our Factory:

With 16 000m2 of land and some 6000m2 of factory space, we stock some 2000 tons of galvanized, Hot rolled, stainless and pre-painted steels. This material can then be slit, cut-to-length, roll formed to sections or engineered to meet your needs. With 6 overhead cranes, with capacity to 25 tons and 4 service gates, loading and off-loading is well controlled.

Our People:

Operating on two shifts, Inprofile has over 60 staff members. The office staff has over 50 years of experience in the engineering and roll forming industry.


Technology Now And In The Future:

Steel , from our main supplier, Arcelor Mittal, is slit on our slitting line to tolerances of +/- 0.25mm. The slitting line can manage coils 1503x4mm to 300x0.5mm. A smaller re-slitter slits narrower coils. Our 6 roll formers can roll sections from 450x100 x4mm to 10x10x0.4mm

Our new high-speed roll former will be able to roll lip channels, channels, angles, purlins and two shelving sections at speeds of 60 meters/minute. These sections can be pre-punched. This Goliath roll former will be operational in the first quarter of 2009. Tool up time from 1 profile to the next is approximately 90 seconds.

What is the difference between cold rolled steel sections and hot rolled steel sections?

 Hot rolled steel sections are manufactured from a hot steel billet that is then formed while the steel is red hot and highly malleable. Cold-formed sections are formed at room temperature from coil or sheet supplied by steel suppliers. This process requires precise tool design and the correct steel grades being selected. High Carbon Steel’s are generally not suitable for cold forming.


We have a unique section we wish to manufacture, what do we do?

Lead-time depends on the nature of the sections design specifications. Generic sections (angles, channels, purlins, lip channels and top hats are m/f in 3 – 10 days. Special sections requiring custom tooling require 6 weeks to m/f tooling.

 Should tooling be required to m/f  a custom section , the clients pays 50 % of  quoted tooling costs.


Can Inprofile p/l utilise the tooling we have paid for to m/f for any other customer?
