Welser profiles can be found in a variety of applications in every continent of the world. In the latest example, profiles are used as frames and struts satisfying high demands on dimensional accuracy, structure and flexibility of section production and contributing to the construction of the worlds tallest building, Dubai Burj.
The Dubai Burj is currently under construction in Dubai (United Arab Emirates) and is expected to be the world's tallest building. In order to achieve this goal, the highest performance will be expected from a formwork technical point of view. This will be fulfilled by self-climbing formwork independent of a crane, which through its modular construction guarantees an efficient solution, construction sequence independent of the weather conditions and maximum safety of the workforce on the construction site.
In light of the growing demand on preserving resources and reducing CO2 outputs, the manufacture of load adapted and weight optimised components for new developments is playing an increasingly important role. One of Welser Profiles newly developed cold roll-forming technologies is now able to meet with these demands.
The development of new materials, in particular high tensile steels, have allowed the specific weight of individual components to be reduced.
Aside from the lightweight material construction, lightweight form construction has also become more significant within the profiling sector. Welser has taken on this challenge with the development of a new process for cold roll-forming. Welser has applied for a patent for a production process to manufacture profiles with weight and structural optimised profile cross sections with high strength and stability values and at the same time a reduced weight per metre. In addition to the advantage of a significant reduction in weight, there is also a reduction in the material requirement, resulting in cost savings; increased strength on a minimal strip area and the possibility of processing pre-galvanised strips are also among the biggest advantages of forming. Profiles of this kind are already in use in the concrete formwork and transport industry sectors. Further developments are also under way in areas such as fixing systems and logistics.
Furthermore, it is possible according to requirements to integrate a variety of punching and stamping techniques, as well as thermal and mechanical joining techniques. The enthusiasm of the customers is proof of the great potential of this development. This is mainly due to the wide variety of design and processing possibilities of roll-formed sections, which Welser offer customers to provide them with solutions to their diverse and varied problems.
An example from the automotive industry is the Salzgitter Flachstahl AG and Karmann initiated Project Scalight – Scalable Autobody Lightweight Concept. Instead of the standard shell construction, a frame made from Welser profile components is used.
In light of the development in the raw material and energy market, this new roll-forming technology offers a range of application possibilities for the most diverse sectors of industry. Welser understand how to convert an innovation to make it suitable for industry and market requirements. Choose us!
