Engineering and Shaping Services

Use our support


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 

We produce net-shaped foam cores with high precision, to any geometry you require. This can be done either by CNC machining or thermoforming. 

- Engineering service: supporting economical options for bonding, thermoforming and         CNC machining for your specific geometry

- Pre-process management: moisture management, drying, heat treatment and FOD            control

- Conventional thermoforming with high temperature tooling, thermoforming with low                                                  temperature tooling, thermoshaping with compression

                                           - Multiple 5-axis large format CNC machines, multi-spindle CNC machines

                                           - Quality management: First Article Inspection (FAI), certificate of conformity for each                                                    delivery, digital measurement with “FARO” arm, process control documentation,                                                            reproducible quality, FOD control

                                           - Logistics: just in time, ready to use, optimized packaging concept

                                           - Certifications

                                              • AS9100 Certified
                                              • ISO 9001
                                              • ITAR certified (#M22668) - Mobile, Alabama, USA location only

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.
