VALUE-ADDED SERVICES

We Offer a Complete Line of Value Added Services

Tri-State Metals, Inc specializes in meeting the customer’s needs. We offer a full line of value-added services to process your material. We perform services like laser cutting, hydefinition plasma cutting, oxy-fuel cutting, saw cutting, and powder coating all in our warehouse. So we're ready to give you exactly what you want, when you need it. If you need punching, braking, or bending, we can take care of that for you as well.

State-of-the-Art

Our state-of-the-art laser, oxy/fuel, and plasma CNC machines allow us to meet your needs. If you can draw it, we can cut it. Tri-State Metals, Inc. has the processes in place to take your drawing file and import it directly into our CNC software for fast, accurate processing of your material.

CAD Drafting

While we can accept several file types, including DWG, DXF, AI, and EPS, if needed, we can create the CAD drawings for you based on your hand drawn sketch, template, or other image along with the appropriate dimensions provided by you. We can even create CAD files by “reverse engineering” existing cut parts.


Cutting Capacity

We can cut very thin gauge sheets up to 8” plate when using a variety of materials, including: cold roll, hot roll, 4140, AR, T1, or galvanized; and up through 1” plate on aluminum or stainless steel.


Saw Cutting

We can take stock lengths and cut them to size to save you time and money. We have the capability to cut one stick to length or cut bundles to length with close tolerances.


Laser Cutting

From basic shapes to very complex parts our laser produces precise, burr-free, bevel free parts. We can cut steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, stainless, and brass. We also have the ability to cut acrylic, plastic, wood, and other non-metallic materials

Laser Accuracy: +/- .005

Laser Table Size: We are capable of cutting sheets or plates up to 5’ x 10’

Laser Cutting Ability: On steel, and galvanized steel we can cut up to 5/8” thick. On aluminum, stainless, and brass we can cut up to ¼” thick


Hydefinition Plasma

Superior to plasma. Parts are more accurate, cut faster, and have less bevel than traditional plasma parts. We can cut steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, and stainless.

Plasma Table size: We are capable of cutting sheets or plates up to 10’ x 20’ .

Plasma Cutting Ability: On steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, and stainless we can cut up to 1-3/4” thick.


Oxyfuel Cutting

It is one of the oldest ways of cutting material but is still great for thick steel plate parts.

Oxyfuel Table Size: We are capable of cutting plates up to 10’ x 20’.

Oxyfuel Cutting Ability: We have the ability to cut steel plate up to 6” thick.

If you need shearing, punching, rolling, or braking, we have the capability to take care of that for you too.


Powder Coating

Powder coating is a superior coating for most metal objects. It is weather and UV resistant. It lasts much longer than most coatings available today. While the color possibilities are endless there are a variety of finishes available as well. Finishes include: smooth gloss, textured, hammered, matte, and others. A selection of high temperature finishes are even available. We are also capable of refurbishing metal objects where the existing paint surface has deteriorated.

Oven Capacity: 6’ wide x 6’ tall x 10’ deep
