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

Plate Laser Cutting

  • Laser tolerances in stainless, aluminum and carbon plate up to 1”,
    up to 1/4" in red metals
  • Maximum plate capacity 80” x 159”
  • High precision and repeatability on cut parts
  • Produces near net of finished products to your print
  • Minimal heat affected zone
  • Minimal to no clean-up
  • Etching (not offered on red metals) and “stitch-cutting” available
  • Potential secondary processes:
    • Tapping from #10 - 3/4” and M5 - M12 available depending on size and thickness
    • Forming
With a maximum plate capacity of 80” x 159”, Alro is able to cut a wide range of parts.
With its narrow kerf width, the plate laser is able to achieve better yields.
High precision and repeatability on cut parts make the plate laser ideal for production runs.
