Alro Steel has expanded its tube processing capabilities to include a new Hautau RC60 Tube Cutoff System
at its Potterville, Mich. location. The benefits include ID/OD chamfers of both ends, high
production speeds and precision tolerances. The Hautau RC60 can cut carbon steel, stainless steel,
aluminum, brass, bronze, copper and alloy tubing.
The new tube processing machine offers precision tolerances of ±0.005 for O.D.s of 1.500 to 6.7 in. and wall thicknesses of 0.049 to 1.00 in. Standard bevel features of 30°, 40° and 45° (actual size of 30° is 27.5°) are available.
Alro Steel is a distributor of metals, industrial supplies and plastics. Founded in 1948 by brothers, Al and
Robert Glick, Alro Steel began in a small garage in Jackson, Mich. The company name was derived
from the first two letters from Al and Robert. Al began the company during a steel shortage in the 1940’s
which was due to the military demands of World War II. He found a niche matching up companies with
steel needs to companies with excess steel.
Today, Alro has grown to over 60 locations in 12 states. Alro distributes metals, industrial supplies and
plastics, offering cut-to-size metals and plastics with next day delivery to over 25,000 customers in North
America. Alro sells a broad inventory of products under the following companies: Alro Steel, Alro
Metals, Alro Metals Outlet, Alro Industrial Supply, and Alro Plastics.
