Thai Metals was founded in 1984 and was one of the first wholly Thai owned extrusion companies in Thailand. Initially the company traded exclusively in the architectural field providing extrusions for further processing into doors & windows by other local companies. Over the intervening years the application of extrusions manufactured by Thai Metals has expanded into dozens, perhaps hundreds of other industries. Significant amongst these applications are heat sinks, electric motor bodies, measuring instruments, lighting poles curtain walling, ladders and motor vehicle components to mention but a few.
In addition to providing the hardware, Thai metals also provides a number of services to its customers. The company advises customers on the best use of aluminium extrusions, on the best alloys and tempers to use as well as advising on design of extrusion shapes for best manufacture and economy.The largest service is probably anodising and Thai metals has two anodising plants, the latest of which is one of the most modern in South East Asia. Another very substantial service is semi-fabrication, and in some cases even complete manufacture. Sections are cut to length with extreme accuracy and quality of cut. Semi-fabrication can also include bending, drilling, punching and milling etc, so that parts can be introduced into other assembly operations without further work. Lengths as short as 10 mm can be provided with a cut accuracy of _ 0.15 mm.
