Cold roll formed light gauge steel sections can be made in a variety of shapes
for effective use in many engineering applications. SOme of the industries
where use of cold formed sections are:
Rolling shutter components like shutter lath, guide channels
and bottom plates, Z purlins, door frames and structural sections.
Chassis sections, panel sections for cargo bodies of LCV's,
HCV's, stiffeners and other sections for smaller vehicles like tractor
bodies, pick-up vans, etc.
Electrical and Textile:
Sections like MCB holding channels, C profiles, Din Rails
and Triangular Creel etc.
Any section can be developed to suite the design and requirement
of general engineering industry.
Electrostatic precipitator components like collecting electrodes
and discharge electrodes can be conveniently roll formed to suit the
Verity of Cold Rolled Form Sections for various industry.
Use In Structural Engineering:
With structural steel becoming costlier, there is an urgent
need for alternate technology to reduce the consumption of steel. It
is in this context cold roll formed light gauge sections in structural
and fabrication industry is more then 30 years old.
The basic advantage in using light gauge steel sections is the relative
high strength-to-weight ratio compared to conventional hot rolled
steel sections. Since the stiffness of any member is directly proportional
to moment of inertia of the cross section (I), increasing the dept
and reducing the thickness increase the moment of inertia of the
of improving stiffness - reducing the weight
As any flexural members, like purlins are designed by theory of
simple bending, higher sections modules make the sections more efficient
in load carrying capacity and thereby economical. This is the basic
principal behind the designing of cold roll formed light gauge section.
Also higher moment of inertia (I) reduces the slenderness ratio in
comparison members and thereby increases the carrying capacity.
