Steel Profiles

As flame cut steel profile suppliers we can produce multiple or one off pieces. A hard edge can occur when flame cutting medium carbon steel plate, therefore these grade are commonly normalised after flame cutting. Flame cut steel blanks can be supplied surface ground and edge machined to your requirements. All flame cut pieces are dressed before final inspection and despatch. If you have any special requirements please inform our sales staff when you order your flame cut steel profiles.

With medium carbon steel grades (such as EN8 & EN9), we offer normalising (or stress relieving) after flame cutting.


Surface grinding and edge grinding can be carried out on all flame cut steel components. This is done on Lumsden grinding rotary reciprocating table machines. After flame cutting pieces can be ground to clean up. Alternatively flame cut blanks can be Lumsden ground to size on thickness to a tolerance of +/-0.25mm.  A tighter tolerance may be possible, please request your required tolerances when enquiring.
