Adding value

At Special Profiles, we are keen to add value to our customers' products.

At Special Profiles, we are keen to add value to our customers' products wherever possible - from assisting with new research and development through to stocking and JIT delivery where it's required. Our approach is to supply "ready to use" components to make fabrication and assembly easier. In our rolling mills, we manufacture mast profile `longbars' hot sawn to a range of lengths. In addition we offer: · Cold sawing to finished mast lengths. · Fabrication of profiles. For example drilling, notching or machining. · Shot blasting to provide a cleaner and smoother surface. · Cold drawing to improve dimensional tolerances, surface finish and straightness. The cold drawing process offers significant quality benefits for some specialist mast applications, for example high reach. Our cold drawery leaflet provides more details about this process.

World beating product range

We offer the most extensive range of mast and carriage (hanger) bar profiles in the world.

Within the Special Profiles business we have the benefit of two production lines which offer the most extensive range of mast and carriage (hanger) bar profiles available in the world. Our multi-line production facilities provide our customers with flexibility, security and choice. Part of our product range includes open rolled profiles which are available to all customers. Please refer to our open roll profile cards for further details. For truck manufacturers who prefer unique designs, we design and cut rolls which are reserved exclusively for their use. Furthermore, we recognise that some mast assemblies demand specialist requirements, for example sideshifting capability. We have a growing range of profiles which meet these specialist needs. Please contact us to discuss your particular requirements.

Technical excellence

We recognise that the mast assembly is crucial to overall truck performance.

We work closely with customers' engineers to develop the optimum mast shape and steel grade for each truck application. This "partnership" approach assists our customers in building and strengthening their own position in the market. Our business is supported by Corus's Technology Centres, which are dedicated to research and development projects, and employ a mix of specialists such as engineers, scientists and metallurgists. Utilising these resources, along with our own expertise, we offer a whole range of technical advice on issues such as weldability, fracture toughness and fatigue. At Special Profiles we have over 40 years experience of designing and cutting rolls for manufacturing mast profiles and we are committed to continual product improvement. We offer a range of low carbon high strength low alloy steels which are ideal for mast manufacture. They incorporate, fracture toughness properties which are sufficient to cope with the twisting and bending stresses experienced by the largest paper handling and container handling trucks. Our open roll profile cards provide further details on steel grades and properties.

To help you develop a more reliable and effective mast profile design, please provide us with the following information: · A drawing showing dimensions and tolerances of the profile Quantities required Details of steel specification and inspection Any special requirements
