Special steel profiles play a fundamental role in numerous industries. Mannstaedt, for example, is the first choice supplier for customers in international industries as diverse as automotive, handling-vehicles, storage and handling technology, building and earthmoving equipment, goods vehicles, construction and agricultural machinery. Each and every special profile is a tailor-made product that saves time and expense during further processing and completion and enhances the dimensional accuracy of components. Our tight tolerances set industry standards.

Production process

Hot-rolled, cold-drawn and further processed: we produce a large and diverse range of special profiles - for all conceivable applications - on rolling-lines with a total capacity of 250,000 tonnes, with support from our in-house laboratory and high-performance technologies. Our heavy-gauge rolling-line is used for the rolling of products ranging from 15 kg/m to 180 kg/m, in widths up to 400 millimetres and bar lengths of up to 24 metres, while our light-gauge line produces special profiles which can range from 2 kg/m to 35 kg/m, with widths of a maximum of 180 millimetres and bar lengths up to 18 metres. Our comprehensive know-how covers all facets of metallurgy, engineering, roll design, hot rolling and further processing. 


Our special profiles are tailor-made products, the geometry and chemical composition of which precisely match the customer's specifications. They are individually produced to assure outstanding materials properties, from straightness and flatness, via bar or item length, up to and including outstanding surface quality. To be sure of achieving the best possible solution, options such as drawing, welding, precision sawing to length, blasting, milling and coating/surface finishing are also available in addition to hot rolling. A large series of standardised products round off our portfolio.
