Experienced ZOLLERN experts choose the appropriate material from a wide range of steels and steel alloys in order to meet the requirement that will be placed on the profile.

Hundreds of steel grades and other materials are available to choose from. For the steels, we use structural steels, machining steels, case-hardening steels, heat-treatable steels, rolling bearing steels, tool steels and stainless (austenitic, ferritic and martensitic) steels.

Processable Materials


The profiles run through different processes in production, which are tailored to the desired profile properties.

Further machining is optionally carried out with various methods to produce customer-specific components that are ready to install by customer request.

  • Hot rolling
  • Cold rolling
  • Cold drawing
  • Inductive hardening
  • Mechanical processing
  • Heat treatment
  • Surface treatment
  • Assembly
