Stainless steel wire is special to AWI
AWI is receiving record demand for high quality stainless steel that is of European origin and/or DFARS compliant.
The company offers a selection of 18 different grades and these are all available in special diameter tolerances, special tensile strength ranges, special surface finishes and special packaging.
Interest has come from customers in a range of sectors, including aerospace, nuclear, marine and petrochemical, with many citing the firm’s AS9100 accreditation and its on-time delivery record as key reasons for the enquiry.
“Manufacturing quality, delivering reliability is one of our founding principles and one that still rings true today with our global customer base,” commented Natalie Baker (Sales Executive).
“We have an extensive range of stainless steel grades and our stock levels mean we can provide it in any quantity from ¼ kg to 50kg in just two weeks. Our manufacturing capability is equally as impressive and we are more than happy to produce wire as small as 0.025mm (that’s 2 times smaller than a human hair) and as large as 21mm. Applications can be as diverse as ‘Locking’ wire for aircraft engines to stainless steel wire for cutting honeycomb from a beehive.
“In addition, if you are manufacturing machined components and don’t want your wire on spools or in coils, we can provide your stainless steel in straight bars.”
The below stainless steel grades are manufactured in round wire, flat wire and profile/shaped wire and delivered via express air courier all over the world. AWI’s service is so special that, for example, material can be in a customer’s factory anywhere in North America within 2 days of shipping!
