Hello again everyone,
this week we diversified!
An important client of ours wished to have some 6.35mm diameter aluminium coils rolled. The outside diameter of the coil was to be a small 100mm. AI&S approached 3 different suppliers in the Brisbane and Gold Coast regions for quotes as we don’t roll or bend tube. One submitted a very expensive cost, one said “no sorry we can’t do it” and the third just said “yeah I’ll get onto your quote shortly” that was 3 weeks ago! So it seems as if they were just dropped into the too hard basket for these suppliers. We have been around a long time now so we thought of a way to do it. We machined the necessary tooling with our state of the art CNC’s, retrofitted a powered rotator to accommodate the dies and rolled our own aluminium coils to the exact correct size.
So, if you are in a bind and can’t find anyone willing to go the extra mile and put some effort into a job you are needing to be done, come and see us at Associated Iron & Steel Pty Ltd. We have the experience and determination to get the job done.
Here is a picture of the finished coil.
