Our world revolves around steel. We cannot imagine everyday life without our passion for the constantly evolving material. And we evolve with it. Whether engineering, heat treatment, or materials testing – our modern Steel-Center offers you the full range of production processes, products, and innovations relating to the high-tech material steel.

The mechanical and technological properties can be determined within one working day in our DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018-03 accredited test laboratory. In addition, we can straighten tubes and profiles on various straightening lines with an accuracy of up to 1:1,000 mm. Furthermore, we have the possibility to completely adjust tubes and profiles. This includes, among other things, fixed sawing, visual inspections, the determination of unit weights, hard stamping, and ink stencilling as well as non-destructive testing.
