Whether you need slit aluminum, copper and copper alloys, stainless steel or carbon steel, the companies of thyssenkrupp Materials NA are your best source for coil processing. Our facilities across the US house nearly 30 slitting lines to process both ferrous and nonferrous metals, while our multiple slitters located in Canada process nonferrous materials. Currently, our slitting line in Mexico is dedicated to carbon steel. Our vast array of slitting equipment allows us to process material from .005” gauge up through .195”, and up to 72” wide coils depending on the material. We also offer value-add coil processing services such as annealing, re-rolling, traverse winding and edge-conditioning, giving users in the electrical, medical, aerospace and automotive industries the products they need, delivered to their door by our robust logistics network.
Starting your production cycle with the sheet sized to your exacting specifications saves you processing time and reduces overall scrap costs. With many cut-to-length lines for aluminum and stainless steel and a specialty metals cut-to-length line for brass and copper, the companies of thyssenkrupp Materials NA are ready to provide the flat-roll processing services you need to reduce your production time. With cut-to-length processing lines strategically located across the US, we use our nationwide logistics system to deliver just-in-time to customers in wide variety of industries including automotive, medical, aerospace, appliance and electrical. We also offer customers value-added flat roll processing services such as PVC and stenciling on stainless and aluminum coils from .010” to .250” thick and 6” through 72” wide. We also offer cut-to-length processing for copper and copper alloy coils from .010” to .125” thick.
A versatile technology, abrasive water jet cutting utilizes water pressure and garnet abrasive mixture as cutting media. Waterjet cutting allows customers to receive near-net shape parts while maximizing material usage, and reducing scrap.
Waterjet cutting is an efficient production technology, especially with single part manufacturing, that provides tighter tolerances resulting in the ability to provide customers with extremely detailed parts. No heat input in the component through the cutting jet abd there is no structural changes in the material, such as increased hardness and micro fissures. High machining accuracy and surface quality at the cutting edge and no pollutants created during the cutting process.
Custom Extrusion Programs
Custom extrusion programs allow our customers the opportunity to have mill-produced custom extrusions stocked in our warehouse facilities and delivered just-in-time, in the quantities they need. We offer precision cutting and other services, such as tumbling, for a first-stage processing-ready piece. The companies of thyssenkrupp Materials NA maintain relationships with industry-leading mills in the extrusion industry and our nationwide logistics system guarantees the material is at your door, when and where you need it.
The companies of thyssenkrupp Materials NA offer a wide range of precision cutting services for RBW, sheet and plate products for all nonferrous metals including aluminum, brass, bronze, copper and stainless steel. In the US, processing facilities across the country house multiple shears for sheet, nearly 40 straight line and contour saws for plate, capable of both standard and precision sawing tolerances on material up to 12”thick, and almost 60 bar cut-off saws, including high-speed Tsune saws that are capable of cutting tolerances as close at +/- .005”. Additionally, we offer customers value-add processing services such as grinding, chamfering and straightening. In Canada, our shearing center complements the more than 10 RBW cut-off saws located at processing facilities from Vancouver to Toronto. Our logistics system provides the support necessary to get the right product to customers in the automotive, electrical, medical and aerospace industries at their locations throughout North America.
As a leading value-added supplier to all major industries in North America I, our capabilities include fabrication of standard and engineered (custom) components utilizing CNC controlled punching, bending and cutting equipment for use in the assembly of parts for the electrical industry, as well as the medical, automotive and aerospace industries. Our fabricating locations in Canada produce and deliver parts on a JIT basis to companies throughout the entire NAFTA region.
