OnlineMetals.com Adds C110 Copper
Ready-to-Ship Blanks from TCI Precision Metals
TCI Precision Metals announces that its C110 copper, Ready-to-Ship blanks are now available from OnlineMetals.com, the World’s leading e-commerce metal and plastics supplier. The pre-machined blanks allow customers to order flat, square, and parallel materials to close tolerance specifications.
C110 copper is 99.9% pure copper and has a conductivity of 101% IACS (International Annealed Copper Standard). C110 copper plate and sheet material is well suited for environmentally challenging applications. For marine usage, copper provides natural antifouling properties, making it ideal for many boat components, both above and below the waterline. Given the natural conductivity of copper, it is an excellent choice for electrical components. The thermal properties of copper make it an excellent choice for heating and cooling applications. Copper is often specified for aerospace and defense applications for its conductivity and corrosion resistance.
“C110 copper Ready to Ship Blanks help customers shorten setup time, reduce scrap, and increase overall throughput up to 25% or more by eliminating material prep. Blanks arrive machine-ready for production,” said Ben Belzer, President and CEO of TCI Precision Metals.
Precsion blanks eliminate the need for in-house sawing, grinding, flattening, squaring operations, and outside processing. Blanks are consistent, part-to-part, which reduces setup time. In the case of flat blanks, the production process alleviates the material's residual stress, resulting in reduced part movement during CNC machining.
C110 copper Ready-to-Ship blanks are available in common thickness from 0.25” to 1.00” and are guaranteed flat +/- .002”. Precision saw or waterjet cut dimensional sizes are available up to 24” x 24”, +.125”-0” of specified length and width. Each blank is deburred, cleaned, and individually packaged to avoid damage during shipping.
“We are seeing a growing number of customers looking for pre-machined materials. At OnlineMetals.com, we specialize in cut-to-size, small-to-medium-quantity orders shipped directly to any location. Pre-machined C110 copper blanks provide that extra processing value that lets customers order materials that arrive ready to go directly from receiving to machining. Customers can use the time they previously spent in setup and prep for more productive use of CNC machining centers,” said Matt Holzhauer, Marketplace Manager at OnlineMetals.com
