Products Offered

BAR 

Stock sizes in bar range from 1/8" to 12" in stock. Larger sizes, and special sizes can be produced to your needs. Product can be centerless ground up through 4" diameter.

High Performance Alloys stocks mainly round bar products. Our extensive inventory ranges in sizes up to 12 Inch diameter. Normal stock lengths are 12 ft random in length. For example, 12 ft random would be 10 to 12 or 11 to 13 ft.  This is industry standard practice. Some bar products are carried in longer mill lengths of 10 to 18 ft randoms. Our inventory serves a dual purpose: we can sell as a distributor product or manufacture custom requirements in bar.

 

We are capable of manufacturing bar lengths up to 30 ft. Depending on the material required, there may be several tempers or manufacturing methods used. Sometimes the material specification will determine the required manufacturing method by requiring a cold drawn, hot rolled or hot forged condition. The following details some of the types of manufacture we have available for our customers.

 

FASTENERS 

Fasteners in the materials that we stock. If your item is not in stock, we will help make it available.

SHEET/PLATE

Widths and lengths can vary from alloy to alloy, depending on their thickness and need for particular use.  We cut items to size using shear, abrasive, plasma and waterjet.

HPA has the inventory to provide same day shipments for small and medium shipments. Larger quantities can be supplied through our network of mills. Some of our mills may allow us to offer a better delivery to our customers by adding the requirements to our own stock material purchases.

TUBULAR

We offer standard sizes in some alloys, as well as special "made-to-order" rolled pipe, & tubing. Also mill runs and small quantities are available for seamless and welded pipe and tubing.

WIRE

Spools and cut lengths available for quick shipment. Sizes range from 0.001" to 0.125" diameters. Close tolerance or product for welding.

 

Special / Custom

HPA is also a secondary producer of the alloys that we normally stock, as well as a number of other materials. This is performed using forging, rolling and our network of mills.

FORGINGS

Many of our materials are being forged in Tipton.
Bars, flats, and upsets are made to order.

We are now offering forgings made on our forge press. Forging allows for a wide array of mechanical properties. From annealed, precipitation hardened condition, to cold reduced, and the hot worked-as worked conditions. While the possibilities are endless, it depends on the material, and what we are starting with.

We are specializing in the production of bar stock, and other loose tolerance items. We do not perform closed die, or hammer type forgings. Quantities usually less than 2000 Lbs. allow us to produce a single bar or piece of the material and size that our customers require.    

Rounds, rectangle bar, pancakes or upsets are produced with this hydraulic press. Basic dimensions controlling customer product are limited by die size, and handling capabilities. The widest possible on the press is 24 inches. Stroke length is 36 inches. Several material handling devices carry product from 20 lbs to 3000 lbs.    

Advantages Include:

  • Process small to medium lots of materials, excellent for prototype, research, and other small quantity requirements.
  • Producing round, square and rectangular bar, as well as performing upsets and processing of ingot to billets.
  • HPA can move fast to help customers achieve results, and get their material as quick as possible.
  • Convert customers slow moving inventory items into useful sizes, or lengths.
  • Re-work material to achieve proper material property requirements. Through hot working, many materials can be forged to optimize properties by orientating grain, refining grain, or post forging heat treatments.    
We specialize in quick deliveries, and small quantities. We also offer our services to quantities that are medium to larger needs (2000 pounds, or less) and will estimate for deliveries through our large network of mills for even larger needs.
