Since 1946, the KOCKS brand has been a synonym for technological innovations that define the performance standards in the steel industry.
Dr. Friedrich Kocks, the founder of the company, was the first to apply the 3-roll technology for tube rolling as well as the rolling of wire rod and bar. To date, this philosophy of following new avenues and to continuously optimize what seems to be perfect has determined the development of the company.
For the past 70 years, KOCKS has been the clear innovation leader, setting decisive benchmarks again and again. A far-sighted company management strategy has encouraged a culture of innovation, and the unique selling points resulting from innovative process and equipment development have enabled KOCKS to lead the market in special rolling mills.
The combination of 3-roll rolling mills and state-of-the-art automation solutions offered by KOCKS enable our customers to improve their competiveness and productivity in the production of special quality long products.
The latest generation of 3-roll technology for rod and bar sizing is the RSB SCS®. This latest development of the KOCKS RSB® incorporates an innovative drive train together with closed-loop control of stand adjustment during rolling and/or by tension control of all types of stands in order to repeatedly produce the best tolerance bars. A new gauge called “4D EAGLE” powered by Automation W + R supports the SCS® operation. This gauge operates on the light section principle and features the highest measuring frequency available in the industry.
The Stretch Reducing Block SRB® with individually driven rolls (Star Drive) is the latest development for the production of high quality seamless and welded tubes with the lowest conversion costs.
KOCKS also offers integrated process solutions including Low Temperature Rolling systems to reduce post-processing costs while producing the highest quality SBQ and Tubular products.
The whole service range includes consulting, planning, development, design, supply, assembly and commissioning of rolling mills and automation solutions as well as modification and modernization of existing plants.
Steel which is KOCKS rolled® is defined as an extraordinary quality finished product made consistently day in and day out: “We make your product gold.”
