Precision laser cutting

Because we know that every project requires tailor-made components and tubing sections, as part of our value-added processing services, we offer a professional precision laser-cutting service with fast processing times, to shape, size, drill, slot, and bevel each metal section to suit your exact specifications.

With the exact and tight tolerances achieved with our precision laser-cutting, intricate and challenging shapes can be created at competitive prices. The laser beam follows the contour of the part it is cutting, melting and vaporising a narrow kerf, wasting no material and leaving a perfect edge or border.

Our products have been created for the harshest environments

The full range of products we supply has been created to function at their peak in the most aggressive and high-risk industrial, commercial, and specialist environments. They can withstand extreme temperatures and chemical, electrochemical, environmental, atmospheric, oxidising, aqueous, microbial, intergranular,  marine, stress, and galvanic -corrosion.

Why should you consider nickel alloys?

Different nickel alloys for specialist purposes are created from a carefully balanced ratio of nickel, chromium, cobalt, aluminium, titanium, molybdenum, and a host of other metals and elements for their exceptional resistance to extreme temperatures, and corrosion, and their strength-to-weight ratios.

The major types of alloys are:


Stainless steels

Iron-nickel-chromium alloys

Copper-nickel alloys,

Nickel-copper alloys,

Nickel-chromium, and

Nickel-chromium-iron alloys

For various applications, alloys are also grouped into low expansion alloys, magnetic, and non-magnetic alloys.


A special category of high-performance metal alloys is known as superalloys. In addition to the exceptional qualities of the various types of nickel alloys, they also retain their stiffness, strength, toughness, and dimensional stability at much higher temperatures than other metals.

Superalloys are especially popular in the manufacture of aircraft, spacecraft and missiles; desalination plants; offshore pipelaying; shipbuilding; and submarines.

Superalloys containing titanium are also used in surgical applications such as joint or hip replacements, prostheses, or as fasteners and support.

Seamless stainless steel tubes

Used for control lines, chemical injection, sub-sea safety valves, steam & heat trace bundles, flow measurement and sensing, and fluid and gas transfer, Special Metal Alloys offers stainless steel tubing and nickel alloy in a wide variety of shapes in fixed-length straight sections, coils, or extreme lengths. We also specialise in capillary stainless steel tubing.

Welded stainless steel tube

Welded stainless steel tubes can also be supplied in coiled or fixed straight lengths or cut to size.

They are widely used in the food and beverage, automotive, medical, measurement and instrumentation, alternative energy, design and construction, irrigation, and petrochemical industries.

Re-drawn and precision nickel-alloy and stainless steel tubes

These tubes are available in coil form and straight lengths in a variety of sizes. They are created to achieve homogenisation of the weld to refine its structure.

Non-standard sizes, thin-walled, or tight tolerance stainless and nickel tubes can be made to order with short lead times.

Stainless steel ornamental tubes

Special Metal Alloys has supplied ornamental stainless steel tubes in oval, elliptical, or flat oval tubes for some of the most prestigious architectural, marine and construction projects in different parts of the world.
