Cold Drawn Steel Special Shapes
Keystone Profiles has produced many special profiles through the cold drawn process for a wide range of industries and applications. Through our 250,000 square foot facility, we are capable of providing you with a product of your specific mechanical properties, size and surface needs.
Our cold drawn steel special shapes deliver a high yield, low waste alternative to hogging material off the outside of your round bar. We always ask, “Why buy a round bar?” You should, too.
How Do Cold Drawn Profiles Save Me Money?
Machine shops put chips on the floor as a natural course of business. As the material being machined gets more expensive, those chips get more expensive. We help eliminate the heavy external machining on steel bars by delivering near net or net shape profiles or special shapes to our customers.
During the cold drawing process, the special steel profiles are pulled through a series of dies to achieve the specific size and shape needed.
Benefits of a Special Shape
Keystone Profiles’ custom cold drawn steel services have many benefits for your business. Special shapes allow our customers to skip the early machining steps, freeing up time, talent and money to focus on the end part they are making.
When you buy a special shape, you reduce your manufacturing cycle time and avoid paying for those chips on the floor. Most of our customers report reduced inventory, reduced floor space and avoided capital and tooling investments because of buying special shapes from Keystone Profiles. Your cost goes down, and your time to market speeds up.
And, it is not just about the shape. Surface finish, metallurgy, mechanical properties and length specifications are part of the special shape package. You tell us what you need, and you get your special shape drawn to your exacting requirements when you need it.
