Transformation processes of structural steel
Structural steel is placed through a fascinating process of transformation in METALSISTEM production facilities. The galvanised coils enter production and after a process of slitting into format are processed using leading edge technologies to form highly efficient structural profiles.
METALSISTEM’s profiles Sendzimir galvanised finish guarantees elevated resistance and durability to the product.Coils are slit into widths by one of the most innovative and technologically advanced slitting lines available today, such to satisfy the diverse catalogue of METALSISTEM products.
The slit coils entering production are then transformed mainly using one of the following processes: roll forming and brake pressing.
The roll forming process consists of passing a continuous sheet of structural steel through a series of rollers which progressively plastically deform the material until the required form is achieved.
The brake pressing process generally uses a single action to punch out the required form from a sheet of metal through the use of a press which compresses the material against a die.
The machinery that METALSISTEM uses for this type of production are the result of meticulous research and development on the part of METALSISTEM’s own Research and Development division (CSR).
ZERO environmental impact
In 2011, METALSISTEM built one of the world’s largest industrial manufacturing sector photovoltaic installation using its patented Super 4-5-6 profiles.
To date, METALSISTEM has reached 75% energy self sufficiency through the almost 12’000 photovoltaic panels installed on the roof tops of its facilities.
The 38,677 m² area covered by photovoltaic panels produces 2900 Mwh per year, which contributes to the reduction of 1,622 tons of Carbon Dioxide.
In this way, METALSISTEM means to play a responsible and tangible role in the environmental safeguard and climate-change querelle.
It is in fact possible to build a successful self-sustaining business model with ZERO emissions and ZERO impact.

Once upon a time…
METALSISTEM was founded in 1970 thanks to the managerial verve and creative spirit of its founder, Antonello Briosi, role which he continues to play with tenacity and inspiration. The company commenced its activities designing and producing roll forming machines.
The original patent is based on a modular and functional system used to create industrial storage solutions and archives able to satisfy both the most demanding industrial applications and those of the family.
The experience gathered in the production of roll forming machines, the numerous innovative patents, and the considerable market success of the first range of roll formed galvanised steel profiles quickly channelled the company in the latter of these activities supplying standards of high quality which have been recognised and certified by the most important European controlling bodies.
A dedicated Research and Development division has been active for years providing ongoing support to the industrial activities of the group.
By researching solutions and highly innovative products, that result from numerical analysis and experimental outcomes, METALSISTEM aims at maximizing the performance levels of its products.
The advanced technological know how acquired through research and development has enabled METALSISTEM to patent its inventions and to produce industrialised products.
The use of refined calculation methods and sophisticated experimental techniques, has enabled METALSISTEM to certify the QUALITY and SAFETY of its products.
