Custom Cold Rolled & Cold Drawn Metal Profiles

Rathbone Precision Metals, Inc. is a manufacturer of precision cold rolled and cold drawn profiles produced in wide variety of alloys that include carbon steel, free cutting steel, alloy steel, stainless steel, nickel alloys, high temp alloys, as well as brass and copper alloys.

Our profiles range in cross sectional areas that fit within a 0.032″ to 2.000″ diameter circle. Depending upon the profile cross sectional area, profile configuration and customer requirements, we deliver these profiles in a wide variety of forms that include catch weight and pancake wound coils, exact length and random mill length bars, deburred and non-deburred saw cut pieces, as well as adiabatic sheared pieces for larger volume requirements. Minimum mill quantities can be as low as 300 lbs. although we are open to conversations for possible smaller quantities.

Precision cold drawing controls allow us to offer linear dimensional tolerances that range from our standard +/- 0.002″ to an optional +/- 0.0005″. For cold rolled profiles we offer standard dimensional tolerances of +/- 0.002 on thickness and +/- 0.005″ on width.
