Timken produces some of the cleanest, highest-quality steels in the world for the most demanding applications. The majority of steel manufactured by Timken is custom melt steel to the customer's chemistry and manufacturing specifications. Timken also produces standard ASTM grades and quality level steel which is a higher performing and longer lasting steel than offered by our competitors. Where no steel exists that will do the job, Timken works with customers to develop new steels with the precise metallurgy and specific physical properties to do the job.
Associates in our steelmaking facilities have a relentless focus on increasing efficiency while improving quality. Through tight control of the steel chemistry and near-elimination of unwanted gases and non-metallic impurities, Timken provides clean, air-melt steel that is able to meet the toughest performance requirements.
In addition to producing steel bar and tubing, Timken also offer value-added processing. Timken converts the bars or tubes into rough or semi-finished parts that eliminate production operations for our customers and provide precision deep hole boring and finishing products and services.
