Cutting Edge Profiles

We produce a range of high quality cutting edge profiles providing additional wear resistance and extended life for excavator bucket applications.

Extensive range

Customers can choose from an extensive range of 'open roll' profiles, or specify unique designs, where rolls and tooling will be reserved for individual customer use. We can produce many profile sizes and designs, including single bevels.

Product benefits

A range of high carbon and heat treatable boron steel specifications are available which include a standard range of steels.

The standard boron steel range provides high strength and toughness after heat treatment. This makes them a popular choice for 'bolt on' parts for bulldozer blades and bucket edges. They can be used for 'weld in' applications when using an appropriate welding procedure.

The standard range of high carbon steels offer lower tensile strength and toughness compared with the boron steel range. These steels are particularly suitable for motor grader applications.

Bespoke profiles

Our roll design and technical teams work with customers on new, bespoke profile designs for specific applications.  

If you have an idea for a special profile, we will be happy to discuss it with you. Please contact us and provide the following information:

  • A sketch or drawing showing the shape and dimensions of the profile
  • The steel grade or mechanical properties required
  • An indication of the annual volume (tonnes or metres)
