Areas of application for tubes and sections

Michael Leithinger

The tubes and sections from voestalpine Profilform (China) Co., Ltd. are made exclusively from steel. But they are used in a wide range of areas.

What could excavators, wheel loaders, forklifts, buses, trucks, trailers, cars, cabinets, windows, fences, furniture, greenhouses and much more all have in common? They all contain tubes and sections from voestalpine Profilform (China) Co., Ltd., which give them structure, shape and strength.

The subject of safety

Strength is especially important in commercial vehicles: Excavators and wheel loaders are mostly operated in uneven terrain or in mining. ROPS and FOPS cabins made with premium tubes and sections can protect the driver in accidents or from falling stones or other objects. ROPS (Roll Over Protective Structure) and FOPS (Falling Object Protective Structure) are not yet legally required in China, but it is important to international companies like Caterpillar to fulfill these requirements worldwide.
