Speciality Metal Shapes and Stock Information
Specialty metal shapes and stock consists of metals and alloys with an unlisted, specialized, or proprietary shape or stock form. Specialty metal shapes and stock can be manufactured in a wide variety of metal in both small and large quantities including carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum.
Specialty metal shapes and stock include less common profiles or complex shapes. Common profiles or stock forms include squares, rectangles, angles, channels, tees, beams, plate, rod, bar, strip, wire, foil, ingot, billets, and slabs. Specialty metal shapes and stock are manufactured in bar, tube, structural, sheet and plate. Specialty metal shapes and stock are also rare and specialty metals. They can be cut to detailed specifications, including roll formed shapes, specialty extrusions, specialty contour castings, roll compacted shapes, and specialty forgings or forged shapes.
Specialty metal shapes and stock can be made through roll forming, extusion, continuous casting, roll compacting powder metals, and forging. Specialty metal shapes and stock can also be made through machining, grinding, punching, cutting, and shearing. Specialty metal shapes and stock processing services including cut-to-length and multi-blanking, coil-to-sheet tension leveling, slitting, edging, shearing, first stage configured blanking, pickling, cold rolling, annealing, plasma and oxyfuel plate burning, bar and extrusion sawing, and aluminum plate sawing. Specialty metal shapes and stock utilizes technologically advanced equipment that is certified to AS 9100, TS 16949, ISO 9001-2000, and ISO 14000 standards.
Specialty metal shapes and stock include profiles with specialized features such as masts, frames, heat sinks, hand rails, guard rails, window frames, door frames, structural members, louvers, conduit, electrical strut, hat channels, drawer slides, U-channels, filter channels, fence post, drum rings, unequal leg channels, and DIN channels.
Specialty metal shapes and stock utilize accurate and consistent parts and precise machining of the tools to create skilled metal forming. Specialty metal shapes and stock costs can by reduced by eliminating secondary operations by performing them in-line with a combination of computerized punching, contouring, and welding.
Specialty metal shapes and stock are used in the steel industry and cater to the aircraft and aerospace industry, airplane repair and manufacturing industries, OEM's, tool shops, ship repair, naval manufacturers, and ship building yards. Additional specialty metal shapes and stock applications include electronic components, vehicle sub-assemblies, architectural structures, appliances, furniture, computers, and automotive components.
