Langley Alloys - Competitive & Convenient

Langley Alloys’ objective is to provide our customers with a competitive and convenient service. By combining processing with the supply of our materials, we can save time and cost, allowing you to focus on your own priorities

Recent months has seen further investment at Langley Alloys, adding to the services that can be offered to valve and actuator manufacturers. We have just commissioned a large deep-hole borer, in principle able to handle bars up to 600mm diameter and 2.5m long. Due to the size of the machine, it has been installed in a separate facility nearby.

By ordering bored bars directly from Langley Alloys we are able to generate savings in cost from less transport, handling and purchase risk, whilst lead times can also be reduced. Added to which, you only need work with a single point-of-contact, with the benefits of our quality systems and traceability.

Besides providing a competitive general machining service, we can use this capability to offer hollow sections in small amounts that would not otherwise be available ex-stock. Using our metallurgical know-how, we can further process our alloys to create either solid or hollow bars with significantly increased strengths, creatively replacing much more expensive materials options.

During the last 12 months Langley Alloys has been appointed as Sandvik’s UK distribution partner for duplex and super duplex stainless steel bars, and invested £1.5M in stocking a more complete range of nickel alloys (625, 725, 825, 925, K-500, 718).

Besides the newly installed deep-hole borer, our warehouse has seen additional racking to increase our stockholding by up to 30%, combined with more new saws. This upgrade to our main UK location means that we have an improved stock range and depth, quicker and more accurate saws, plus extra processing options, all to support the growth of our customers.
