Precision Thin Metals - Ultra Thin Gauge Alloy Strip and Foil

The Precision Thin Metals (PTM) division of Arnold Magnetic Technologies produces thin and ultra-thin alloys that improve the power density of motors, transformers, batteries and many other applications in automotive, aerospace, energy exploration, industrial and medical markets.

For example, our Silicon Steels improve the power density of motors and transformers, our ultra-thin Ni, Al and Cu are facilitating the development of tomorrow’s batteries, while our thin Titanium strip is both strengthening and lightening components used in the aerospace industry.

How Thin is Thin?

Thinness is a relative term and we’re often asked how we categorize the end-product’s thinness or gauge. We define thin and ultra-thin this way:

Thin gauge
0.060″ to 0.0005″
1.524mm to 0.013mm
Ultra-Thin / Foil
0.00049″ to 0.000069″
0.01245mm to 0.00175mm

Arnold’s Precision Thin Metals manufacturing processes allow us to control the properties of a wide range of materials to meet your required specifications. Our metallurgists and engineers are experienced in designing solutions for your most demanding applications.

The Precision Thin Metals division is ISO 9001, AS9100, and Nadcap certified, demonstrating our commitment to quality processes and continuous improvement.

Arnold is your non-traditional trusted partner, registered with ITAR and DFAR.

  • Thin and Ultra-Thin Silicon Steels

    Thin and Ultra-Thin Silicon Steels

    Many types of electrical devices use a soft magnetic material as the flux-carrier. Silicon-iron (Si-Fe), often referred to as “electrical steel” is the most commonly used material. Its’ high permeability, low coercivity, and ductile properties make Silicon Steels a perfect match for high speed, high efficiency motors and transformers applications.
