We support our customers in all sorts of ways — not only in supplying the materials they need, in small to medium batches, but also by arranging ancillary services and by offering the benefit of our long experience in the rolled aluminium industry.
We have now supplied customers in over 40 countries all around the world and always respond promptly to enquiries – almost always within 24 hours, and often within 24 minutes!
Here are a few examples of how we have been able to help…
How can we help you?
Rigi-Kuehler AG have been making a wide range of copper-brass heat exchangers for over 50 years, but have recently launched a range of all-aluminium units for water, oil and charge-air cooling.
For initial samples to test Rigi's new brazing furnace, we supplied small batches of different clad sheet thicknesses, and airfreighted 20 kg batches of 3 types of unclad fin half way round the world for commissioning trials of the new fin machine.
But now that the new equipment is "up and running" in Rigi's plant near Luzern, we continue to support the project with JIT supplies of many different specifications.
TMCCL have been really helpful in getting our project off the ground.

A major manufacturer of heat exchangers for the OEM market was about to come to a production stop because of a late delivery of 0.10mm fin strip from their regular main supplier.
Fortunately we were able to offer from stock a few tonnes of an acceptable alternative alloy specification in the correct thickness, which was slit within a few days to the correct width.
I have known Bob Ward for many years, and his company TMCCL has helped us on a number of occasions in that way. They have also provided small quantities of brazing foil for our prototype work and for brazing of supplementary brackets.

Cogen Microsystems, an Australian research and development company, wanted to produce a completely new design of heat exchanger unit for a solar power engine, using alternating thin sheets of clad and unclad material and thick plates as well.
TMCCL became involved at an early stage and not only supplied the various materials for the prototypes and the subcontract CNC punching and waterjet profiling of the components, but also the successful brazing and testing of the finished units.
We found TMCCL really knowledgeable and helpful in putting our design ideas into practice.
