ROD BLANKING SERVICE
You may be currently purchasing full size bar products and then having to cut them down in to more manageable billets. Depending on your situation, this not only involves cost but more importantly can be potentially inconvenient.
Thames can offer you rod blanking options where we cut your products to the specific billet sizes you need. We currently cut over two million billets per year, so we are able to employ scale-efficiencies that reduce our cutting costs to a minimum which we can pass on to our customers.
We have the capability of handling solids, most sections and tubes without any marking or crushing and our entire processing operation is ISO 9120:2018 approved. By combining our processing services with rapid response times, we supply you with supply chain options which are efficient and cost-effective.
