Cold Drawn Steel Special Shapes
Special shapes deliver a high yield, low waste alternative to hogging material off the outside of your bar. We always ask, “Why buy a round?” You should, too.
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.
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 as a result 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.
