High strength steel is a complex base material: sheet thickness, hardness and other variables determine the elasticity to a large extent. This means that bending these steels is not an exact science, but an activity which can be carried out only by experienced people equipped with unique tools and skills. The high-precision bending of extremely large steel plates is one of Vlassenroot’s core competencies. To be successful in its niche, Vlassenroot has skilled people and a large arsenal of bending machines of up to 24 meters and with forces up to 4,000 ton.
Up to 24 meters | Forces up to 4.000 ton | +30.000 profiles annually
