The in-house lab offers testing flexibility and provides our customers fast and accurate data.
Gibbs also received ISO 9001:2015 certification earlier this year.
301 stainless steel coil is provided by Gibbs as a slit to width product. 301 is available in regular or high silicon and many temper designations such as quarter hard, half hard, three-quarter hard, full hard, extra full hard, super full hard, 270,000 min tensile, high yield and others. Gibbshas the 301 strip product you need. We stock a vast inventory of 301 coil from .0019” up to .065”. We offer 7 locations in 3 countries to make sure your slit coil is available to you where and when you need it. Gibbs offers precision slitting down to 0.024” wide with exceptionally tight tolerances. In addition, we have the ability to apply multiple edge types and traverse wind onto several spool and reel types making your product and manufacturing process superior.
Patented Wire is a standard grade music wire that has been conditioned for spring and wire rope applications where strength and high tensile are needed. Patenting is a heat treatment process that improves the durability and strength of the wire. The process involves an in-line heat treatment at 970 degrees Fahrenheit and then cooled in a variety of mediums including air and lead. The resulting wire has a fine pearlite structure with little or no separation of the ferrite (iron).
All of Gibbs music wire under .055” diameter is patented. Size above .056” are available upon request.

Lean.org describes their philosophy as: “A lean organization understands customer value and focuses its key processes to continuously increase it. The ultimate goal is to provide perfect value to the customer through a perfect value creation process that has zero waste.
To accomplish this, lean thinking changes the focus of management from optimizing separate technologies, assets, and vertical departments to optimizing the flow of products and services through entire value streams that flow horizontally across technologies, assets, and departments to customers.
Eliminating waste along entire value streams, instead of at isolated points, creates processes that need less human effort, less space, less capital, and less time to make products and services at far less costs and with much fewer defects, compared with traditional business systems. Companies are able to respond to changing customer desires with high variety, high quality, low cost, and with very fast throughput times. Also, information management becomes much simpler and more accurate.”
Gibbs uses LEAN practices as a tool for continual improvement. It’s our goal to provide world-class products and processes to our valued customers. For more information visit our Quality Page

420 Stainless Steel Strip Now In Stock-Annealed Condition
420 Stainless is similar to 410 in corrosion resistance but, offers increased hardness in the heat treated or stress relieved conditions. 420 is often selected for cutlery, medical devices, dental instruments, and straight edge applications. 420 is not often used in applications where the operating temperature is over 800° Fahrenheit.
Gibbs is now providing 420 annealed strip and slit coil for immediate sale in gauges from 0.005″ up to 0.035″. We offer extremely narrow width slitting capabilities to 0.024″ wide.
In addition to our specialty slitting capabilities, we provide special edging including; #1 round, #3 slit, and #5 square. Our winding options include ribbon wound coils, coils on cores, coils with flanges, as well as traverse/oscillate wound on spools and reels.
