We manufacture cold-rolled precision strips of stainless and heat-resistant steels in widths up to 650 mm / 25.59" and in thicknesses of 0.05 mm / 0.002" to 1.5 mm / 0.06" for demanding technical applications. The demand requirements placed on the steel we supply require us to have a close relationship with our customers and a deep understanding of their products.

Everything we manufacture is made to tightly defined tolerances in terms of tension strength, flatness, surface texture, and more. Our precision strips are available in a wide range of standard and specialty stainless steel grades, including duplex and high-performance austenitic grades.

Typical applications of stainless steel precision strip

  • Sophisticated deep drawn parts
  • Electrical connectors
  • Hypodermic needles
  • Pressure cans for pharmaceuticals
  • Technical springs with defined tensions
  • Thin walled and flexible tubes

Common stainless steel precision strip grades

Precision strip is available in most austenitic and ferritic grades, and many are available as highly pure ASR-grades. Special steel 1.6908 (Ultrafort) martensitic precipitating stainless steel precision strips are also available. Duplex grades are available on request.
