Our copper piece-sheets and plates are manufactured entirely in-house, from casting all the way to the finished semis. We offer you a wide range of alloys in more than fifty colours. We manufacture sheets and plates on one of the world’s most advanced casting and processing plants, the Conti-M®, which we ourselves developed. We can also develop plates and discs on request, even if the vertical manufacture range is high. Plate shears, circular saws and water-cutters enable us to custom-trim and standard-cut our cold-rolled piece-sheets. We can deliver one-off products as well as series production batches. We can also produce in compliance with your technical drawings; we will gladly advise you on that.
Typical areas of use
- Industrial engineering
- Plant engineering
- Power engineering
- Wind Power Plants (offshore, onshore)
We supply you with standard cold-rolled piece-sheets of thicknesses from 3 to 35 mm and up to a maximum width of 1600 mm. Apart from the standard dimensions we also offer individual sheets directly tailored to customer requirements.
KME supplies hot-rolled sheets and plates measuring between 3 mm and 240 mm in thickness for a wide range of applications. We can also supply widths of up to 4000 mm. As well as using Cu-HCP as a primary material, all other copper varieties in market demand are available, such as Cu-OF, OFE-Cu, Cu-ETP and Cu-DHP. We also offer low-alloyed copper plates that possess special properties. These include CuAg0.1P and CuCrZr. Coppers of this type are excellent for use in steelwork moulds and areas such as welding equipment. Plates are used in electrical engineering, in mould- and furnace-making, in high-current technology and in special applications such as sputtering targets, explosion and roll cladding. KME copper plates have outstanding technological processing properties combined with exceptional evenness. They are very easy to bend, to further process and to weld, for instance, depending on customer requirements.
All products come in specially made, standard-compliant, secure packaging. Our packaging guarantees retention of shape, ensuring that a product’s properties are preserved to the utmost after leaving the factory. Sea-freight packaging is something else we offer as standard. We can assess individual requirements provided they can be presented technically, and offer them for an extra charge.
