Metal Processing Capabilities
We have a wide range of in-house processing services available to our revert metals customers, and very recently we have expanded these services also to our other metals. Our processing capabilities include in-house sizing/ shearing, sawing/ cutting, shotblasting and plasma cutting.
Our revert metal is 100% inspected and sorted, processed and certified by a skilled team. This revert metal is supplied to customers around the world. Using revert metals reduces the carbon footprint compared to new virgin metal, so, by buying revert metals, customers are doing their bit for the environment.
Metal Processing Services now available to a wide range of metal customers
Following the relocation and expansion in Q1 2020, we are now offering a range of metal processing services called ‘toll’ services, some at both of our locations, Tankersley on the border between Sheffield and Barnsley and the other in the West Midlands, for a wide range of metals from revert metals to steel and non-ferrous metals. Below are some of the processes on offer at this time, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Sizing and Shearing
Our in-house capabilities allow us to size and shear materials to meet our customers’ requirements with the use of our shears and guillotines.
Scrap and Revert Materials
With the use of our industrial bandsaws, we are able to purchase long length and oversized scrap & revert materials and process to a size that suits our customer’s needs.
Steels and Non-ferrous Metals
We operate several automatic and semi-automatic bandsaws for cutting a range of steels and non-ferrous metals. Our cutting capability is up to 800mm square.
All of our revert & scrap undergo a thorough shot-blast to remove any dirt, dust, and scale prior to dispatch.
Scrap, and Casting Metals
We operate shot blasting equipment for a range of scrap products and castings. The equipment includes barrel blast for solids and flat products as well as a high output automated tumbler for gentler blasting of solid pieces.
Revert Metals and Non-ferrous Metals
With our fully contained plasma torching and extraction facility, we are able to handle irregular or intricate shapes and process them to a bespoke shape and size. We have several drawdown plasma benches and plasma cutting up to 75mm thickness. Plasma is typically used for removal of contamination from non-ferrous metals and removal of foreign attachments.
Revert and Scrap Metals
We have the capability to crush, cut and bale a wide range of scrap materials. Baling can help packing density and create uniform sizing for our customers furnace requirements.
For a range of Flat Metal Products
A range of guillotines, both manual and CNC are available for cutting of flat metal products such as steel sheet/ plate, nickel and copper cathode. Our guillotines are able to cut accurately 1’’ squares upward, also strips and anodes to various sizes.
