Alro Steel was established in 1948 by Al and Robert Glick. Today, Alro is comprised of Alro Steel, Alro Metals, Alro Plastics and Alro Metals Outlet.

Metals Processing Capabilities

Plasma Cutting

Alro’s Plasma Cutting Systems provide tighter tolerances, minimizes machining on finished parts and provides greater part accuracy than standard flame cutting. Plasma has a smaller heat affected zone and reduced edge cracking when forming. PC-based control technology increases control in shape cutting.

Advantages include:
  • High quality edge cuts
  • Minimal clean-up
  • Small heat-affected zone
  • Etching and beveling capabilities
  • Forming as a potential secondary process
Part nesting and tight tolerances give plasma cutting an advantage over other processing.
Alro’s Plasma Cutting machines also offer beveling and etching capabilities.
Plasma has a smaller heat affected zone and reduced edge cracking when forming.
