The safety and well-being of our employees and customers is our greatest priority. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to evolve. We are actively working to minimize its effect at Steel Warehouse, with the full intent of continuing to support our customers through this challenging time. Read the message from our President here.
Steel Warehouse uses a reversing mill and a complex automation system to target precision gauge points. Our cold reduction mill services make steel harder and stronger.
This process is called work hardening. Subsequent heat treatment is necessary if the application requires formability.
Cold reduction improves gauge inconsistencies in hot roll and allows precision gauge tolerances as tight as +-.0005”. Cold reduction imparts surface texture giving the steel sheet a specific roughness and luster depending on the application. Shape can also be corrected or induced during this process
