At our 86,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Reading, PA, Heyco Metals, turns out a broad assortment of premium quality copper, copper alloy and light-gauge stainless steel coil and strip. We’re always striving to improve our already highly rated customer service, and our equipment, facilities and end products just keep getting better.
Rolling down to .002" thick
Slitting .200 - 17.000" wide
Order Sizes 250 lbs. and up
Traverse-wound reels: 500lb/1000lb/2000lb

Three rolling mills to cover customer orders both large and small. One Sundwiger Eisenhuette split-housing 20-hi reversing rolling mill with air wiping, automatic shape measurement and control, automatic contactless gauge control and filtration to 1 micron absolute. This mill received a major upgrade in 2006. Two Sendzimir solid-housing 20-hi rolling mills with automatic contactless gauge control and mineral oil coolant with filtration down to 1 micron absolute.
One (1) two-base, single stack Ebner installation with cracked ammonia atmosphere (N2/H2).
Two horizontal strand furnaces (one Drever and one recently acquired Siemens unit). Both utilize hydrogen/nitrogen atmospheres with up to 100% hydrogen content for the ultimate in clean, bright, oil-free surfaces on both annealed and tempered materials.
Stretch Bend Leveling
A wide width Ungerer unit, with automatic shape measurement and control via feedback loops, provides the ultimate in flat, stress-free product. In-line surface inspection automatically scans 100% of both surfaces, capturing all specified defects for later containment as appropriate. A narrow width as-slit leveling unit allows processing of slit product for the best in straightness and freedom from die-exit twist, etc.
Two (2) Ruesch lines using loop-in/loop-out tensionless slitting for optimal slit edge characteristics
- Bridle tensioning avoids friction pads and associated surface impairment
- Shimless tooling
- Computer-generated setups
One (1) Yoder unit for heavy gauge coils
Two (2) Heyco-designed three-head units
Two (2) Landis and two (2) Ecotech lines for all workrolls and backup rolls
