Metal Component

Metal Components Manufacture and Design for all Industries:
Low and high volume, fast turnaround, precise spec, tight tolerances, competitive prices, delivered on time – call us to discuss.

We manufacture a range of customised and ‘regular’ sheet metal components. These include small parts such as brackets, plates and cleats, as well as larger items, including doors, frames and racks. Generally, our customers are engineers and project managers in telecoms, aerospace and construction for whom we work directly or through their contractors.

We’re a very focused team of people, able to turn jobs round quickly and efficiently whether they’re high or small volume production runs. Our approved supplier status means we have the proven expertise and controls in place to meet our customers’ rigorous quality control requirements. The metal components we make perform correctly according to a range of parameters, for example tight tolerances and tensile strength. Full material traceability throughout the manufacturing process is also guaranteed at Alroys.

The variety of our customers’ projects mean we work with different metals. Aluminium and stainless steel components are frequently manufactured by our sheet metal workers but also copper and brass. Alroys is a one-stop resource for customers needing fully finished precision sheet metal component manufacturing – from design through to finishing.

What are our metal component services customers looking for?

Our customers are looking for metal components that meet their individual needs, together with a prompt service from start to finish. To Alroys, this translates into 7 compelling service benefits:

  1. Fast and efficient turnaround of projects
  2. Competitive pricing based on experience and knowledge
  3. Clear understanding of what each metal component has to achieve
  4. Design capabilities whether that’s adapting a plan or starting from scratch
  5. Prototyping to achieve the best outcomes
  6. Manufacturing to precise specifications, including tight tolerances
  7. Compliance with regulations, from H&S to industry-specific

As the above 7 features demonstrate, Alroys’ metal component service is dedicated to helping its customers achieve their goals.

Who do we make metal components for?

Metal components feature in most industries and we work for a lot of them including three of the most significant: aerospace, telecoms, construction. Their individual project and industry needs may differ but once customers understand what we can do and how we work, they entrust us with more and more complex projects. Here’s a quick overview of how metal components feature in these three sectors:


Requirements for aerospace metal components depend on precision and versatility. Tolerances are typically tight and durability is key within environments where temperature, humidity and mechanical stress is common place.


Fast turn around and agile design are highly-prized by the telecoms industry. As technology develops so too does the need for custom metal components. From cabinets, casings and racks to brackets and electromechanical parts, we manufacture metal components that ensure schools, hospitals, offices and communities are connected.


The applications for metal components in construction is endless and involves every phase of a project: brackets, purlins, plates, box sections, studding, fittings… We work extensively for the construction industry particularly on fabrication and architectural metalwork projects which is where our customers discover our resourcefulness and the sheer scale of our capabilities.

Alroys Satelite Component 3 1244

What kind of metal components project can we take on?

Regular straightforward jobs for Alroys feature brackets, mounting plates, cleats, etc, in both small and large volume runs.

We also work on more complicated projects where the customer needs our design, project management skills and full service capabilities.

Typical features of our work are tight tolerances, bending multiple angles and labour intensive precision.

Alroys Heat Shield for Satelite metal component services 1244

Heat shields on satellites

We briefed a team of specialist metal spinners to turn the aluminium to the correct shape, working through 3 stages of heat treatment to reach ‘T6’ (hard). The parts were then CNC machined and profiled to create semi-sphere components. We then inspected the hole positions on our CMM machine, adjusting as required to meet the client’s tight tolerances (0.15mm).

Timescale: 12-14 weeks due to complexity.

Alroys metal component services Telecoms Component 4 1244

Brackets for telecom towers

400 stainless steel brackets with multiple angles going in different directions. Working from our customer’s rough drawing, we produced a prototype to demonstrate that both the component and our process were fit for purpose.

Project time: 4-6 weeks.

Alroys Protective Rood Cowls metal component services 1244

Protective roof cowls for construction

2 galvanised steel roof cowls for London-based flats. We designed the cowls to suit the location, the services involved (electricity, media, air con) and maintenance accessibility. We then cut, formed, tapped and cleaned the components. As this was one of the last jobs in the project, timing was tight.

Project time: 1-2 days.

Alroys Electrical Bracket Component For Airbus 1

Electrical brackets on satellites

These brackets for aerospace involve very tight tolerances (0.5mm). We used specialist aluminium from T3 (soft) to T81 (hard) requiring very careful handling. We CNC punched rather than laser cut (the heat would distort), sandwiching the components between two other pieces of material to stop it cracking and breaking. We formed the component initially with small holes, enabling us to move and resize them using a CMM laser probe to achieve the required precision. These projects can be both high volume as well as occasional one-offs.

Project time: generally 6-8 weeks.

Alroys Top Hat Section metal component services 1244

Top hat section for access platform

Designed and manufactured 8 top hat sections to satisfy H&S regulations. Part of a bigger fabrication project, we solved the problem of keeping a ladder in place on 2 maintenance access platforms we were building. We manufactured the part out of galvanised steel (the platforms were above a hot plant room so had to be rust-proof).

Timing: 1-2 days for immediate H&S sign off.

High volume, low volume, custom or off-the shelf, Alroys’ metal component service features fast turnaround, precision and competitive prices.

Alroys Sheet Metal Services



Take control of the unknown by testing first with a prototype. We give you the ability to fully test a design concept, iron out unwanted flaws at the earliest stage and create a working model, approved by your project team.


CNC Punching

By utilising the combination of 3D modelling, CAD/CAM software and Trumpf technology, Alroys is able to offer a complete solution to all your requirements, no matter how unique.


CNC Bending (or Forming)

With advances in technology, CNC (computer numerically controlled) bending technology now gives you the ability to produce almost any component design, saving time and money along the way.


Sheet Metal Welding

This manufacturing process fuses metals together using extremely high temperatures. During cooling, the joints harden, creating permanent structures.


Sheet Metal Assembly

Prior to installation, the assembly stage is the realisation of your project. We take each component part and, in our manufacturing facility, we assemble them, testing each for fit and quality.
