Q1: Why does a steel project require cambering? Is it for strength? Is it for architectural applications?
A1: Both, for cambering and straightening beams. They are often used in construction work, bridges, railways and in steel construction companies.

Q2: Why does any fabricator purchase these machines if they can order from the steel service centre?
A2: To invest in durability by cambering your own beams and to be dependent and flexible – over time it will save you money. The more camber jobs a company has, the better it is to buy a machine for it (instead of waiting in line at the steel service centre).

Q3: What skills or experience are required to operate a beam cambering machine?
A3: Not much, because with the standard cambering press, you set the stroke and push the pedal to make the pushing table go forward.

Q4: How do you prevent the beam from being 'over cambered'?
A4: By testing the stroke settings, step by step. You can set the stroke next to a lineal.

Q5: How many times would an operator have to push the profile through the machine for what would be considered a standard camber? 
A5: Depends on the type of beam, but from a standard point of view, around 3 times.

Q6: Why is RHTC 40% more cost-effective than Swiss/Italian beam cambering machines?
A6: The Swiss Company is more expensive, even though they seem to use the same materials.

Q7: Would RHTC need to visit Australia for training/commissioning?
A7: Not necessary. Installation is super easy, and we provide an extensive manual in which everything is described step-by-step.


The Profi Press cambering press is made in Europe and eminently suitable for straightening and bending large profiles and beams.

Key Features

  • The control panel features a manometer, pressure regulator, a selector for manual or semi-automatic operation and a selector for the two different cylinder speeds (fast approach speed and slow working speed). With the end-stroke switches, you can easily regulate the cylinder stroke.
  • The supporting back table and pushing the main table are equipped with T-grooves and support blocks. The main table ensures perfect alignment by means of four cylindrical lateral guides.
  • A height-adjustable accompanying roller at both sides.
  • Optional accessories. Basic supply rails with a length of 3.000 mm to 12.000 mm with height adjustment.

The electro-welded ‘C’-structure of our cambering presses is made out of ST-52.3 steel and these hydraulic presses are equipped with a supporting back table (made out of CK-42 stainless steel, with two ‘T’ DIN-650 grooves and with two support blocks) as well as a pushing main table (made of CK-42 stainless steel, with four cylindrical, lateral guides, two ‘T’ DIN-650 grooves and one support block).

The Profi Press cambering press is provided with a height-adjustable accompanying roller at both sides of the machine and equipped with a double-acting cylinder (including anti-turning) with a chrome plunger, stroke endings to regulate the cylinder stroke, a pressure regulator, gauge in tons and a two-speed motorized hydraulic unit with automatic disconnection of the high speed. The control panel of this straightening press features a selector for manual or (semi-)automatic operation and a selector for the two different cylinder speeds (fast approach speed and slower working speed). Operation is carried out by low voltage electric pedals.

The Profi Press cambering press is delivered with a warranty of 2 years and made with solely high-quality components for the best possible quality (fulfilling the latest CE regulations as well). These hydraulic cambering presses can be delivered with several options such as side benches with guide rollers, a larger piston stroke / vertical light, Siemens CNC-control or the geometry adapted to your needs to fulfil all your requirements for this type of press.
