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:
1.524mm to 0.013mm
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.
Titanium & Titanium Alloys
The exceptional characteristics for high overall strength, biocompatibility, corrosion resistance, and workability make titanium ideal for hundreds of applications ranging from E-beam shielding to drug delivery to aerospace surfaces and structures. Titanium sheet and foil materials are available in a number of grades.Learn More
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.Learn More
Stainless Steel & Its Alloys
Excellent corrosion resistance and good workability make stainless steel the obvious choice for commercial and defense aviation devices, precision instruments and components, solar panels and other energy generation apparatus and more. It’s rolled to precise tolerances for thinness and flatness.Learn More
Non Grain Oriented Electrical Steel (NGOES)
Arnold’s Non Grain Oriented Electrical Steel (NGOES) is manufactured in thicknesses of 0.005″ and 0.007″ (0.127 mm and 0.178 mm) under the trade names ArnonTM 5 and ArnonTM 7.Learn More
Nickel Irons & Soft Magnetics
Thin-rolled nickel-iron alloys and soft magnetic materials used for efficient energy storage and transfer. Nickel-iron alloys are characterized by relatively high permeability and low core losses. Their overall high saturation flux density means high performance energy storage and transfer over low to middle frequencies.Learn More
Nickel & Its Alloys
High quality grades of nickel and nickel alloys rolled and fabricated to meet the most demanding specifications. Nickel is ideal for applications ranging from rechargeable battery technologies to microphone capsules to strain gauges, instrumentation sensors, gaskets, motor valves, and other devices.Learn More
Known for its strength, and high temperature and corrosion resistance, makes it an excellent material choice for many applications in the aerospace and chemical industries including: aviation thrust reversers and ductwork, industrial pressure sensors and gauges, and sodium sulfide manufacturing applications.Learn More
Grain Oriented Electrical Steel (GOES)
Arnold Magnetic Technologies’ thin Grain Oriented Electrical Steel (GOES) is 3% silicon steel which is processed under carefully controlled conditions. Arnold produces GOES from several different grades of Silicon steel, all of which are produced in the USA and are DFARS compliant.Learn More
Copper & Copper Alloys
Thin-rolled copper and copper alloys serve a broad range of needs. This versatile material is used in a variety of electrical products, heat exchangers, solar collectors, piping and other applications that require strength and corrosion resistance.Learn More
High quality thin and ultra- thin carbon steel comes in various grades, rolled to precise tolerances for thinness and flatness. Its excellent workability makes carbon steel the obvious choice in numerous commercial, automotive and defense applications.Learn More
Arnon Electrical Steel
