Driving Innovation | Value Added Services

From raw materials optimization to slag applications, TMS International turns insightful ideas into value-added services that help solve some of our partners' biggest challenges. TMS International's 91-year history of industry-leading innovation continues today.

A few of our services making a difference in the world are:

  • OptiMiser®
    TMS International's proprietary scrap purchasing program accesses real-time market pricing to determine the optimal scrap mix based on individual mill chemistry requirements. We ensure the lowest cost liquid steel.
  • Advanced Scarfing
    Our robotic scarfing system flames away all surface defects from the face, sides, edges and corners of slabs. With our patented torch-positioning technology, the system combines the flexibility of manual scarfing with the production efficiency of a semi-automatic machine. Unlike stationary scarfing equipment, our machine can scarf any length, width, thickness or deflection of slabs.
  • Slag Handling
    We pioneered on-site mill services that reclaim metallics and convert slag into useful, environmentally beneficial aggregate products.
