HIGH-QUALITY PROFILES WITH PROFILE

voestalpine BÖHLER Profil is internationally synonymous with high-quality steel profiles that not only convince with best material properties, but also realize enormous potential savings in further processing. Due to the focus on near-net shaped special profiles, a large portion of the waste that would arise from milling and machining of steel bars is eliminated. This sustainable production approach has a positive effect on the material properties, protects the environment and the customer’s budget.

TAILOR-MADE SOLUTIONS – SPECIAL PROFILES FOR A WIDE VARIETY OF INDUSTRIES

Thanks to the high level of vertical integration and an R&D team, which is a pioneer in the field of special profiles internationally, voestalpine BÖHLER Profil is able to strike up development partnerships from a wide variety of industries with international customers. These partnerships often result in best practice solutions that define the standard of tomorrow in the market.

 

 

 

 

Sustainability at all levels

At voestalpine BÖHLER Profil, sustainability is very important in the areas of environmental protection, occupational safety and energy efficiency. We have been carrying out targeted activities for many years to meet this requirement.

  • Steel is 100% recyclable
  • Reduction of CO2 emissions through special profiles
  • boosting efficiency andsustainable resource conservation
  • Electricity self-sufficiency through the company’s own green power plant
  • min. 2% annual reduction in overall energy consumption
  • Return & recycling of residual materials
  • personal protective equipment individually for each employee
  • supporting measures for health protection
  • behavior based safety

 

 

Zero tolerance for tolerances

Depending on the dimension of the profiles, they are produced in different production plants using specially developed processes. While larger cross-sections receive their profile in the open rolling mill, smaller cross-sections are manufactured on the computer-controlled continuous rolling line. The material runs over several deformation stages or rollers and through a precisely controllable heating system. Profiles from voestalpine BÖHLER Profil do more than just meeting the highest demands on deformation and at the same time have the smallest manufacturing tolerances.

Custom alloys

Thanks to the close cooperation with the sister company voestalpine Böhler Edelstahl and other partners, not only high-quality profiles are made of unalloyed steel, but also profiles out of steel-nickel-based and titanium alloys that exactly meet the requirements of customers from a wide variety of industries.

Industrial Knives with Profile

Industrial knives and technical knives are used in a wide variety of industries and commercial operations to manufacture and process raw materials and products.
Depending on the area of application, these special knives are subject to very special requirements in terms of precision, wear resistance, cutting edge stability as well as freedom from distortion and evenness when exposed to heat.
