High Performance Alloys, Inc. (HPAlloys) was formed in 1984 to provide customers requiring small quantities of alloy (less than 500 pounds) with fast, dependable delivery. We also offer our services for larger quantities (around 1000 pounds,) and will estimate for deliveries through our large network of mills for even larger needs.
HPAlloys represents several fine mills throug hout the world, such as Haynes International, Krupp VDM, Allegheny Ludlum, Special Metals, Carpenter Technology, Bohler, Deutsche Nickel, Foroni, Valbruna, Dunkirk, Universal and Electralloy.
HPAlloys is also a producer of these alloys, as well as a number of other alloys. Most production, from forging to rolling and finishing, is performed at our Tipton facility. Our concentration has been on production or toll processing of alloys that contain a high concentration of Nickel, Cobalt, Molybdenum, Chromium, Tantalum, or Titanium.
In general, we supply NITRONIC®, HASTELLOY®, INCONEL,® and STELLITE in various sizes of bar, wire, sheet, plate, forgings and fasteners.
High Performance Alloys provides many "in house" services to aid our customers in getting exactly "what they need, when they need it". We can supply products with the most demanding requirements and we invite you to put us to the test. Being a distributor, service center and a producer helps us meet our customers' specific needs within a very short time. We promise to always give unbiased facts, information, and guidance.
Metals Service Center
Multiple saw types are available to readily cut bars to multiple lengths (MULTS). A piece can be cut from the sheet or plate using a shear, CNC plasma and waterjet. We also offer processes such as rough machining and light fabricating. Our lead times for machining and grinding are dependent upon how much material is being quoted. Small to medium orders are welcome. Special size or temper required? We have production capabilities in-house to produce bars, plates, sheets and forgings to many tempers and sizes, all on an as-needed basis
A GFM 412 Rotary Forge was installed in 1995. A two high rolling mill was installed in 2001, and a 750-ton forge press was installed in 2007. We specialize in making available the sizes and alloys that are not common, not produced yet, or so small in quantity that a larger mill will not produce them.
We use our two high rolling mill to produce small bars, hex, narrow flats, and rectangular. These products are primarily cold finished, and hot or warm rolled when necessary. The 750-ton forging press makes squares, rounds, upsets and planished forgings. The working bed is 14 inch x 36 inch wide, allowing many possibilities of products from under 50 lbs. up to 3000 lbs. per piece.
Production of Special Metals
We also specialize in small quantities. By serving this niche market, we help our mills with developmental alloys. We also help our customers by making that size or alloy available in a short amount of time, without having to purchase a heat lot quantity. Many projects only require a small amount to evaluate a material for process/application suitability.
