Sales Engineer - Profiling Contractors
We provide a range of box section cutting services to help you cut any shape you want on you steel material with utmost accuracy and with a bevel. All the CNC machines we do the cutting of hollow square sections on are developed and produced in-house. Our box section cutting services enable you to realize perfectly fitting box section connections on pipes, beams, plates or other box sections resulting in minimized weld volume.
Chamfer Profiling Shapes are applied for plate connections or to connect box section ends. Sophisticated weld preparations is available to reduce your welding costs.
Saddle Profiling Shapes are applied to connect one or multiple colliding box sections with an intersecting pipe. It is also possible to connect a box section to a pipe. Sophisticated weld preparations are available to save welding costs.
Slot and Hole Profiling are applied to fit gusset plates for structural steel or to create bolt holes.
Do you need extraordinary shapes from your material. We have the solution. Please contact us for more information.
Reduce costs by minimizing your welding volume
Once cut by us your parts are ready for fast and easy fitting and welding. We do this by profiling a weld preparation for one or a combination of weld types to achieve an easy to fit and weld connection and a minimum of welding volume. Also considering shrinkage and root opening.
Receive your box sections ready for fast and easy assembling
We can cut the holes, needed for forming bolted connections, on your box sections instead of drilling them.
Reduce the welding volume on the radius for your box sections significantly
3D Profiling is not limited to straight (saw) cuts. This allows for exactly fitting of the contour of a box section including the radius on the edges. The combination of a perfect shape and advanced weld preparation reduces significantly your welding costs.
The extra step to further reduce your fitting costs
Having reference-lines and footprint-marking on both the main member and the branch member guarantees a quick and precise fit-up for saddle connections.
Stop worrying about standardized quality certifications
We are certified for ISO 9001 and Lloyd’s 3.1 & 3.2.
Get an expert advice on detailing your weld-preps
We have the technology and knowledge to modify welding details to improve weldability and reduce welding volume. Of course all within the Welding Procedure Specification (WPS).
Receive your parts neat & tidy
As an optional service, we can pack your box sections after being cut (e.g. bundling).
HGG is approved by Lloyd’s Register to remark materials and transfer heat numbers by EN 10204:2004 (3.1.B and 3.1.C). Nesting list and re-stamping certificate are available on request to improve quality and minimize manual efforts.
We make the most out of the material you send to us
HGG’s software calculates the most efficient nesting of parts. In many cases the parts will be positioned and rotated automatically into the raw material for achieving a minimum of scrap length.
We help to reduce your total processing time!
The perfect weldpreparation reduces your fitting and welding time. And with 6 cutting machines and a flexible work capacity, we ensure that you can start welding sooner than when you would make the preparation yourself.
The box sections are bundled or crated per sub-assembly as a ready-to-weld kit and transported to your site.

“We did the cutting of all the 400 steel tubes for the uniquely designed Vlaardingse bridge (NL). Due to the twisted shape of the bridge all diagonals were unique positions. That’s why it was not possible to achieve the desired results by manual cutting techniques.”
What is your greatest worry in a fabrication process? Is it the complexity of the design, poor production flow management, too much material waste, loss of control over the operating expenses or the lack of highly skilled welders? Then, how do you deal with the increasingly tough demands and regulations on welded structural design?
We have the cutting machinery capacity to realize all the common offshore cuts, including rat holes, thus giving you complete freedom to design project specific connections. We cut your material on our high-performance plasma cutting line which reduces greatly the amount of grinding work needed after cutting.
Industry application: Cutting square hollow sections for jackets, jack-ups, skids, subsea structure and support frames.
Volumes and material sizes differ from project to project and demand high level of flexibility from your workforce. By using traditional methods a fabricator is able to cut only 10-20 tons of material per day. With the HGG pipe and tube cutting services this can be increased to up to 100 tons a day.
Industry application: Cutting square hollow sections for stadiums, bridges, theme parks, expo centers, airport structures, shopping malls, cranes, trusses
Contact us and get an expert advice on tubular profiling
Years of experience has helped us to be able to give you expert advice on a smooth transfer of 3D-models into cutting files, welding details, optimized nesting and calculating of welding volume.
Send us your preliminary drawings
With our in-house developed software, we offer you freedom to design. We connect to all major CAD-systems. Time consuming manual programming is not necessary. Send us your digital drawings or NC data and we will import them into our CAD-CAM system.
Send us your raw materials and tell us your schedule
Based on your drawings our experienced machine operators cut your material into ready-to-weld parts. We stay flexible in order to fit into your schedule.
Receive all cut parts ready for fitting and welding
Our box section cutting services include transportation. We deliver the pipes, ready for fitting and welding. So you can concentrate on your core-business.
