Schock roll forming technology works with extremely tight tolerances allowing to achieve the highest levels of precision in terms of functional dimensions, straightness, flatness, and the trailing edges of the profiles. With creative tool making solutions we manufacture virtually without burrs using materials with a tensile strength of up to 1000 MPa. Our design of an optimized roll forming process is derived from simulation and our expert knowledge.

Schock roll forming technology includes a wide range of technologies and integrated processes. Parallel profiling and start/stop operation with extremely steep acceleration curves form the basis for dynamic manufacturing processes. In-house developed high-performance stamping devices with extremely short cycle times ensure the cost efficient production of single process constructional elements.

Schock roll forming technology comprises the following processes:

  • Pre-, intermediate and post-stamping
  • Punching
  • Thread forming
  • Clinching
  • Orbital riveting
  • Welding
  • Joining plastic parts

Specific materials are used for each individual profile section when making Schock special profiles. Roll forming is a material- and cost-efficient solution for all materials that can be cold rolled.

Hot-dip galvanized steel is the ideal standard material for numerous applications as it combines quality and cost efficiency in balanced measure. Further materials used for Schock special profiles include:

  • Cold-rolled and hot-rolled steel
    (also with additional surface finishing)
  • High-strength steels
  • Dual-phase steels
  • Stainless steels
  • Aluminium
  • Non-ferrous metals

Schock Metall utilizes various processes for surface finishing. Schock powder coating provides a high-performance and visually appealing surface with long-term corrosion protection. Customers can choose both colour and structure. Primed or foil-coated base materials can also be processed.

Further surface variants for Schock special profiles:

  • Cataphoretic painted
  • Electrogalvanized
  • Pregalvanized
  • Sanded
  • Polished
  • Degreased

Working closely with our customers, Schock engineering teams develop innovative system solutions reliably and quickly. Based on decades of Schock Metall experience, the sliding systems are designed to suit specific requirements in terms of running characteristics, stability, noise levels and load-bearing ability. The linear movement technology can be realized using the principle of ball bearing slides or a friction slide based on the combination of metal and plastics.

Simulating and prototyping are key elements of a project to ensure functional reliability. Schock Metall is your system partner: from special profiles to assemblies to complex sliding systems.

The main applications of our products (gas springs) are:
