Alro Steel was established in 1948 by Al and Robert Glick and has grown to include Alro Plastics, Alro Industrial Supply and Alro Metals Outlet.

Processing Capabilities

Our laser cutting capabilities allow us to offer quality cut parts in a short period of time.

Plate Laser

Laser cutting offers superior, tight tolerances and the best cut surface when compared to other flame cutting processes.

The maximum plate capacity for our laser cutting process is 80” X 159”. Thickness range for cutting carbon steel plate is 24 ga - 1”.

Laser cutting technology is an excellent process for carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum.

Advantages include:

  • High precision cut parts
  • Higher speeds than precision
  • plasma under 1/8 inch
  • Minimal clean up
  • Narrow kerf width
  • Smallest heat affected zone
