Heavy Metal was invented in the West Midlands right?!
Born out of the steel mills with bands like Black Sabbath and Judas Priest taking the lead with their industrial sound.
Well, here we have some heavy metal of our own straight out of the West Midlands – some 50mm thick plates we have rolled with 120° of bend and a 50mm inside rad, from S355J2+N material.
We’ve produced 6 of these plates for one of our customers from their free issue material.
We can offer plate rolling or plate forming in a wide range of carbon and stainless steels from 5mm thick in up to 3 metre lengths, or up to 200mm thick on our plate forming equipment. So whilst this 50mm plate looks thick, this is actually just a quarter of the thickness we can form in-house!
