Why Online Metals is a cut above the rest

1. Custom Cutting Services

We offer custom cut lengths and sizes to save you money and time. You save money on the cost of material since you don’t have to order extra, as well as on shipping. Also, you save time because you don’t have to cut down the extra inventory nor pay to store it. At this point, there’s no excuse for suppliers who don’t offer a custom cut length.

Additionally, we don’t charge cut fees for our custom cutting services.

2. Traceability and Certification

Many industries, especially aerospace, defense, marine, and medical, demand their supply chains can document every step of the material’s way from when it’s still in the ground to when it’s on their receiving dock.

Most suppliers will offer these but typically they charge extra for this service. We do not charge for full traceability reports or compliance forms. And with the exception of a few specialty bronzes, we don’t charge for Material Test Reports (MTRs) either.

3. Product Guides

You are knowledgeable about the materials you work with. We also know that there’s a lot of information out there and you can’t know everything. Because of this, we have a wide range of free product guides to assist you. This information is always available and in one easily accessible place to make sure you’ve got what you need.

4. Excellent Quoting Services

We can answer complex quotes in a prompt manner and keep you up to date with the order. Specifically, we can supply unusual sizes, alloys, shapes, and large quantities.

5. Online Ordering

Lastly, Online Metals give you the option to place your own orders on our site without having to go through a sales rep first. This cuts out potential delays created in the RFQ process.
