Production Capabilities and Value Added Services

High Performance Alloys (HPA) is proud that our capabilities continually expand to offer you the best high-performing alloys. HPA offers hot work, heat treatments, cold work, machining, and other value added services. Time is critical in most alloy applications, especially in a shut-down. We can usually offer a quick option that will help get your operations back on track.

Forging Capabilities

High Performance Alloys (HPA) has many forging capabilities that allow for rapid delivery of high performing, quality materials. HPA is pioneering forged cold work in the modern alloy industry. At HPA, we have a long track record of acquiring recurring business through research and development. From our open die Lake Erie Forge Press to our GFM and Rolling Mill, HPA has many options to help you acquire the size and mechanical properties for your materials' requirements. Our latest wire draw acquisition allows us to provide high strength wire sizes. Our GFM puts cold work in the center of the bar, and by the time it processes through the wire draw, the cold work is nearly completely throughout the material resulting in a near perfect grain structure. Give us a call at 1-800-472-5569, and ask what we can make for you!

Cutting Options

High Performance Alloys (HPA) has a wide assortment of cutting options to meet many of your requirements. From super tight tolerances down to a couple hairs width, a couple thou range of +/-0.005", or the industry standard +0.125/-0", HPA can quote most of your cut tolerance needs. Our waterjets and cold band saw offer a wide variety of options and tolerances that will meet your needs for a non-heat affected zone. Or if you're looking for a more economical route, we also offer HD plasma, shear, or chop saw cuts as applicable. Whether your issue is kerf, tolerances, or heat affected zones, HPA has a cut option for you. For more on our standard cut tolerances, please see our guide FM-75-37, "Shop Standard Cut/Grind Tolerances." For more waterjet cutting, visit our sister company Hoosier Waterjet.
