Cold drawn stainless steel shapes

Cold drawn stainless steel shapes

Cold draw­ing is a pre­ci­sion reduc­tion of the cross sec­tional area of pre-rolled pro­files or wire rod cold drawn through a series of one or more dies. Mon­tanstahl has spe­cial­ized in cold drawn stain­less steel sec­tions and offers spe­cial shapes per cus­tomer draw­ings. Cold drawn stain­less flats, key stock and half rounds are also available.

Tight tol­er­ances and improved sur­face con­di­tion are two advan­tages of cold drawn stain­less pro­files. In addi­tion, cold draw­ing reduces down­stream machin­ing and over­all fin­ish­ing oper­a­tions.   It also pro­vides dimen­sional con­sis­tency and improved straight­ness. There is a sig­nif­i­cant eco­nom­i­cal ben­e­fit to this method of pro­duc­tion because it pro­duces net or near net shapes that vir­tu­ally elim­i­nate scrap loss. Draw­ing processes tend to inhibit the resid­ual stresses released by the mate­r­ial dur­ing sub­se­quent machin­ing car­ried out by the customer.

These sec­tions are gen­er­ally sup­plied in ran­dom lengths. Depend­ing on the shape, three to five tons is a typ­i­cal min­i­mum pro­duc­tion range. The size range is typ­i­cally between 0.305” and 3” in cross sec­tional sur­face area. We have exten­sive engi­neer­ing capa­bil­i­ties to help in the design of your profile.

Typ­i­cal appli­ca­tions for these spe­cial cold drawn stain­less steel sec­tions include pump parts, valve stems, lin­ear guide rails, sprock­ets, gears, key­ways, splines and spin­dles, tur­bine parts, cur­tain wall, facade con­struc­tion, x-ray equip­ment, lou­vers, and cou­plings.   Indus­tries served include auto­mo­tive, power gen­er­a­tion, food pro­cess­ing, aero­space, water treat­ment, pulp and paper, fluid engi­neer­ing, chem­i­cal pro­cess­ing, nau­ti­cal, den­tal, med­ical, hand and power tools, oil drilling, safes and vaults, defense, appli­ances, tex­tile, ele­va­tors and esca­la­tors. In short, cold drawn stain­less steel sec­tions are used in areas requir­ing pre­ci­sion tol­er­ances and  a supe­rior finish.

Sup­ported by state-of-the-art tech­nol­ogy and for­ward think­ing peo­ple, we strive to meet or exceed our cus­tomers’ expec­ta­tions. We pro­duce pro­files with extreme dimen­sional accu­racy and com­plex shapes accord­ing to your needs and require­ments. Con­tact us today to let us help you with your needs.
