Carrier Slats

Australian Rollforming Manufacturers produce a range of carrier slats that are widely used in sugar mills and pulp and paper mills, both in Australia and overseas.

Australian Rollforming Manufacturers’ carrier slats are typically manufactured from 6mm and 8mm commercial grade mild steel, utilising our unique, continuous rollforming process. As a result of this rollforming process, our Australian Rollforming Manufacturers’ carrier slats are able to outperform the traditional brake pressed products.

This unique technology ensures that Australian Rollforming Manufacturers’ carrier slats are precision made to exacting tolerances, particularly in terms of the radii of the leading and trailing edges and the pitch of the chain.

Another benefit of the consistency of profile is that it allows the slats to ‘nest’ neatly on each other, therefore enabling them to be transported long distances whilst containing transport costs to a minimum.


With consistency of profile assured, an appropriate gap between the leading and trailing edge is designed into the slats, and this allows the slats to slide on each other, thus preventing costly and time-consuming machine jams.

Australian Rollforming Manufacturers are custom metal rollforming specialists, with the capability to rollform an almost infinite number of profiles in a wide range of metals.
