Engineering and Shaping Services

We offer a variety of shaping service options and a team to support you on incorporating ROHACELL® efficiently into any of your designs.

SHAPES Department

Our team is equipped to produce net-shaped foam cores with high precision, to any geometry you require. This can be done either by CNC machining or thermoforming. Our Shape Departments are equipped with multiple 5-axis large format CNC machines and multi-spindle CNC machines. Evonik’s in-house experts can advise on economical options for bonding, thermoforming and CNC machining of shapes for your applications. Advice on pre-process management is also available, including moisture management, drying, heat treatment and FOD control. Plus, we can set up your logistics plan to make sure you receive your shapes “just-in-time” and “ready-to-use” with an optimized packaging concept designed just for you.
If you are interested in thermoforming your parts, we can support you with conventional thermoforming with high temperature tooling, thermoforming with low temperature tooling or thermoshaping with compression.

Sandwich Technology Center (STC)

We arrange prototype construction, small production runs, conduct sandwich structure testing and experiments with liquid composite molding, autoclaving and thermoforming. The STC also provides samples and offers customer training.

CAD

We support computer-aided component design, using the finite element method (Design and Analysis). This uses a three-dimensional failure criterion specially developed for ROHACELL® applications.
