Among the hundreds of pages on the redesigned site are a forging dictionary, a metallurgical dictionary, measurement conversion utilities, an international metals specifications cross reference, and an overview of ferrous and nonferrous metals.
All Metals & Forge LLC, a forge facility and metals service center in Parsippany, NJ, has revised and relaunched its Web site www.steelforge.com and in the redesign process the company has added hundreds of new pages covering metal alloys, metal forgings, custom hand-rolled bar, custom melted metal, and value-added services.
In addition, the new offerings include metal industry reference information, a periodic table, forward-looking white papers, an international metal specifications cross-reference database, and the industry-related daily news articles.
With over 1,200 pages, the site is a comprehensive resource for purchasers of forgings, alloy steel, aluminum, carbon steel, copper, magnesium, nickel, refractory metals, stainless steel, super alloys, titanium, tool steels, and zirconium.
According to Lewis Weiss, president of All Metals & Forge, "This launch is the culmination of nine months of work to combine ‘islands of information' gathered over 40 years into one comprehensive resource for metal purchasing, material specifications, industry news, and futurelooking white papers."
Even more information is on the way. "We will continue to add to the breadth and depth of information for our customers and the engineers, purchasing agents, metal buyers, specifiers, and craftsmen in the metalworking industries around the globe," Weiss promises.
All Metals & Forge produces open-die forgings, seamless rolled rings, and contoured rolled rings up to 160 in. outside diameter. Forging shapes include discs, hubs, blocks, shafts (including step shafts or with flanges), sleeves, cylinders, flats, hexes, rounds, plate, and some custom shapes. Forgings can be produced to finished size, finished-size rough machined, forged size, forged-size rough machined, to forged size, or to forged size with allowance to finish to your finish size.
The company also functions as a metal service center, offering products in all mill forms, including flat, round, hex, hollow and square bar, extrusions, fittings, flanges, plate, and some custom shapes. Value-added services include cold and hot forming, heat treating, cutting, machining, extrusions, and rolling and welding operations.
"Our intent is to combine the best aspects of a metal service center, a forge facility, and producer of custom materials with resource information that we customarily use, and share our knowledge base with everyone in the industry to save them time and cost in the process of getting and working metal for their particular needs, from specifying it and pulling it from the shelf to cutting, heat treating, testing and expediting delivery," Weiss explains. "Sharing information is critical during a time when metal pricing is changing from one day to the next, particularly in nickel and titanium at the moment"
The Web site supplies a chart with forging size capabilities. Also listed are the alloys available to be forged, including carbon steel, alloy steel, tool steel, special grades, stainless steel (including PH grades), titanium, aluminum, magnesium, copper, nickel, cobalt, high temperature, super alloys, and special alloys.
Custom operations include hand-rolled bars in many materials and sizes in round bar, flat bar, square bar, hex bar and custom shapes. Custom melting can produce a custom chemistry, a controlled chemistry, an out-of-date or obsolete alloy, or a vacuum melt of a common grade, in heat lots of 250 pounds or more, and provide ingots or mill forms.
