SHC manufactures cold heading and cold extruding parts from wire of Ø 2,50 mm to Ø 16,00 mm. If it makes economic sense, we also produce quantities of less than 50.000 pcs. per order.

100 % of the delivered wire (exclusively by certificated suppliers) are calibrated to their final diameter by own wire pre-drawing machines. This ensures highest possible flexibility and a constant, high quality for our clients.

We manufacture – besides usual steel of all kinds – every common material like chrome-nickel-steel (stainless steel), alloy, copper, nickel as well as copper-tin- and copper-zinc-alloys.

Our special concentration lies on the optional, cutting and turning process following the cold heading of the parts. On special, modern automatic lathes we are able to produce nearly every kind of grooves, drill holes (vertical/horizontal), bevels and/or pivots. Quantities of less than 50.000 pcs. per order are possible as well.

A further strength of SHC is our own tool department. 95 % of the required production tools are manufactured here. This ensures a maximum flexibility and short delivery times for our clients.
