Value Added Steel Services
At Cromdane Steel, Inc., we provide a broad range of value-added services to meet our customers' diverse and stringent needs. These value-added services set us apart from virtually every other steel distributor in Houston and surrounding area. Providing our customers with full turnkey project management solutions, incorporating critical process steps such as ITP’s and MPS give our customers the confidence they need to compete in their respective markets.
While still providing raw material and steel forgings, we’re able to complete – from start to finish – just about any steel forged part up to 60,000 pounds. We can quote whatever our customers need in whatever configuration they want. Quite simply, we can do it all.
Steel Honing Services
The honing process is used to achieve a precise hole size and an improved surface finish. A honing machine includes fine grain abrasive stones which are attached to an expandable mandrel. The mandrel is then slowly rotated and oscillated inside the bore with an oil lubrication until the desired geometry is obtained. Our steel honing services provides a smoother finish and it can improve the geometric form of the bore. This improved shape results in a higher precision component.
Saw Cutting Services
Our team does in-house saw cutting to ensure we get precise cuts every time. In addition to using saws to fulfill the material orders we receive, we do offer saw-cutting services of customer-supplied material for certain local projects. We are able to saw-cut large parts (up to 32” in diameter) and we often have open capacity on the saws. Contact us for more information about our saw-cutting capabilities.
Heat Treat Services
Cromdane Steel, Inc. works very closely with our Heat Treat Partners to ensure our products meet both Customer, Industry specifications and standards. Cromdane Steel’s ability to properly select appropriate material and chemistry allow our heat treater’s to achieve and improve the mechanicals and strength characteristic of our customers exact material specifications.
Steel Rough Machining Services
We provide steel rough machining services for closed die steel forgings to near net shapes. This process reduces the amount of time required to machine forged stock into a finished product.
Rough machining changes steel forging blanks into what is needed by the customer. The process of closed die forging increases the strength, soundness and hardness of stock and improves the metal’s mechanical properties.
