Hadley Group's roll forming know-how gives us the edge when it
comes to solving customers' problems. Taking a 'partnership'
approach, we have the skills and capabilities to take your new
product ideas and develop them until we arrive at the best
performing and most cost-effective solution ready for market.
The scope for new cold rolled formed products is almost
limitless. And as new markets and applications emerge, our role as
innovators within the cold rolled sections industry continues to
Computer simulation tools developed in-house enable us to
determine the strain, forming angle, spring back, shear and
geodesic movement during the cold roll forming process. Having
established these parameters, we can develop contour plots that
reveal how the material flows through the rolls and the levels of
strain placed upon it as the shape of the profile is progressively
Such tooling enables our designers to optimise the number of
stations within the cold roll forming process; reducing design and
It's the combination of the latest technology, creativity and
decades of design and manufacturing experience that enables us to
prototype, refine, test and test again until we reach the most
effective solution, no matter how complex or intricate. Once
agreed, high or low volume manufacturing enables us to tailor-make
products to our customers' specific needs.
As pioneers of the patented UltraSTEEL®
process - which can be applied to virtually any cold rolled formed
section or product - Hadley Group can deliver equal strength from a
lighter gauge material. This results in a more cost-effective end
product, that's stronger and greener by design.
