The preparation

To manufacture our steel frames, a process known as roll forming is used. This is a continuous process which converts sheet metal into an engineered shape using consecutive sets of mated rolls, each of which makes only an incremental change in the steel’s shape.


The manufacturing

In the manufacturing process, a coil or long individual strips are fed through a roll forming line which converts the flat sheet to a contoured cross-sectional profile. The unique aspect of this approach is the use of consecutive forming stations, each of which nudges the metal towards the desired shape.


The finishing touch

From its molten form, steel is cast into cooling moulds. Rough castings are finished through a process called hot rolling. This is used to create seamless, long, and flat products.

"In addition to a production department, at Etex Roodekop (Berry) you will also find a Logistics and Maintenance department".
