Teräselementti invests in the largest metal rolling machine in the Nordics
The biggest metal rolling machine in the Nordics, Faccin RCMI360, can now be found at Teräselementti’s factory in Lempäälä. Via the CNC controlled machine even heavy steel profiles, up to 600 millimetres can be bended in an efficient, controlled and easy way.
According to Teräselementti’s Chairman of the Board, Jarmo Viitala, the new metal rolling machine enables a new kind of precision even to the most challenging arching forms. Especially to architects, the machine offers remarkably more options and freedom for planning.
”Now we can answer to the wishes of our customers even better and with vaster scale. In addition, we can offer a more comprehensive total supply under the same roof. Our objective is to be at the forefront of technical development also in the future. With the newly acquired Faccin metal rolling machine, we strengthen our high-technology know-how and complement it the same way as does the largest pipe laser machine in Finland, which we also have a strong knowledge”, says Viitala.
Teräselementti’s know-how of pipe laser cutting can be seen in Oilon’s projects around the world
Oilon Oy is a Finnish family-owned company, which operates in the energy and environment technology sector and delivers its products all over the world. The company needs laser-tube cuttings for components used in power plants and process burners. Before, Oilon manufactured the laser-tube cuttings itself, but now it buys the cuttings from Teräselementti and saves tens of hours of processing time. Teräselementti operates with the largest pipe laser in Finland and has vast know-how of the high-technology manufacturing method.
For Oilon’s own planning and production, it’s of utmost importance that deliveries are made precisely in schedule. “It is a great advantage that delivery time of Teräselementti is accurate. It makes also our own work easier, as we can organise our own production in sync with them”, says Oilon’s Production Engineer Marko Helatie.

Länsimetro Oy is building 21 kilometres of metro tracks between Ruoholahti and Kivenlahti, which consists of a total of 13 new metro stations. Teräselementti delivers thousands of square meters of facades as a total delivery to Finnoo and Soukka metro stations between 2020–2021. Teräselementti has vast experience in the implementation of special facades to metro stations. We have delivered facades previously to for example Matinkylä and Keilaniemi stations
2500 m2 metal facades to Soukka metro station
Soukka metro station has taken its influences from the 1960’s modernistic buildings surrounding the station. Two of the entrances have sharp lines, which demands extreme precision from the facade constructor. Teräselementti delivers 2 500 m2 metal facades, implemented by Teräselementti’s own facade products Composer K and Composer M. Soukka metro station has been designed by ALA-Arkkitehdit Oy and the work has been ordered by consortium YIT-ARE RU23.
7 000 m2 facades to Finnoo metro station
Teräselementti delivers 7 000 m2 ranked walls with facades and glass walls to Finnoo metro station. Finnoo is situated by the seashore, and the surrounding nature has been taken into consideration in the architecture as well as the art designed inside the station. For example, in the glass surfaces of the facades will be printed graphic forms resembling the vegetation of the shore. Finnoo metro station has been designed by PES-Arkkitehdit Oy and the work has been ordered by TYL LM Finnoo.
