ProFormance Metals to showcase industry tech-transfer30 Nov 2017
ProFormance Metals (stand 6515) supplies metals and plastics to the motorsport industry, with its main line of products being steel tubes used in the construction of roll cages and chassis. The company developed its own grade of tube, ROPT510, a cold drawn seamless tube manufactured to meet MSA and FIA regulations for roll cages. It has a high level of strength but retains its formability, both of which are crucial not only in the construction process of a roll cage or chassis but also upon completion when involved in impacts and roll overs.
The ROPT510 tube started being used within just the motorsport sector at first but in recent years has found its way into many different industries. This is often within an application where higher strength than a "mild steel" is required but without the costs of aerospace standard steels. These include: motion picture production (stunt vehicles, camera rigs, occupant safety cells), defence (modular seating, roll over protection cells) and performing arts (circus equipment rings, stage props).For more information, please visit www.proformancemetals.co.uk
