Metal Manufacturing and Supplies
Metals such as stainless steel, nickel, copper, aluminum, tungsten, titanium come in many different forms. Typically when referring to industrial metals, suppliers will include a number of products like bars, foils, plates, rods, sheets, strips, wires and various other forms. Suppliers frequently offer customized solutions as many types of metals can be manipulated to fit particular specifications. However, certain metals provide unique and distinct advantages. For example, aluminum 1100 is a specialized aluminum alloy which is very soft, and even though this metal cannot be hardened through heat treating processes, many applications will utilize this metal because it is very easy to shape and weld. 316 stainless steel is another example of a popular alloy because of its superior resistance to corrosion. There are many industries which utilize industrial metals including: construction, automotive, aerospace, medical, electronic components, marine and much more.
