Rolling gives a piece of aluminum a uniform thickness from start to end. For this, the metal is passed through a series of rollers that thin it out and make it even all over. Using hot and cold rolling, the process creates a precisely-cut coil with a high-quality finish.
Employing state-of-the-art equipment, Erickson Metals is able to roll uniform thickness throughout a coil, holding gauge tolerance far closer than commercial standards.
We can fulfill our customers’ specific needs for a wide range of finishes, including:
- Standard “Z” Mill Finish
- One / Two Sides Bright
- Matte Finish
- Handle a range of lengths and thicknesses
Coils are rolled to exact specifications, producing a high quality, uniform product that enables our customers to reduce waste, and minimize machine adjustment and down time in their own production processes.
As aluminum is an easily-shaped material, rolling produces a range of shapes:
- Angular shapes
The result is a part or component that could be used for a beam, pipe, plate, or tubing. Because of its versatility, aluminum rolling is requested for architectural to automotive applications.
