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:
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.
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.
We pioneered on-site mill services that reclaim metallics and convert slag into useful, environmentally beneficial aggregate products.
