Shock Absorber Steel

The quality of shock absorbers depends on the properties of the steel used, among other things. Stamping shops and suppliers to the automotive industry trust on the utter reliability of feedstock material during the manufacturing process. When they use Eberle’s high-quality shock absorber steel they enjoy excellent process reliability in the manufacture of shock absorber valves – through increased tool life, for example – which has a positive effect on production costs. Our long years of experience mean that we are a reliable partner, able to meet your requirements for just-in-time deliveries. Call us and we will be happy to answer your questions.
