At Winco Stamping, we have over 20 years of experience working with cold rolled steel. We can advise you on the best type of steel for your specific needs.
Cold Rolled Steel (CRS) is a hot rolled steel that has gone through an extra strengthening process. This process is known as strain hardening. Strain hardening can increase the strength of cold rolled steel by up to 20% depending on the quality of the steel and the strengthening process used.
Winco Stamping carefully follow ISO 9001:2015 guidelines to ensure that you’re receiving the highest quality cold rolled steel parts and top-notch customer service.

Cold Rolled Steel Advantages
Cold rolled steel offers a number of advantages over traditional hot rolled steel. CRS is lighter than traditional steel without sacrificing strength making it ideal for products that need to be carried or hung, but still require a high level of strength. This metal also has a higher level of corrosion resistance than many other materials. Another important benefit is that cold rolled steel is more workable and formable than hot rolled steel while also being less ductile.
Cold Rolled Steel by Industry
Cold rolled steel is a lightweight steel, making it ideal for many lighting applications like ceiling lights and sconces. Cold rolled steel is also a great choice for decorative light fixtures because it can be produced in a number of unique surface treatments including painting, plating and specialty coatings.
Steel tables and decorative industrial-style furniture is often made from cold rolled steel. CRS offers durability and a unique look without being too heavy or too difficult to work with, making it a great metal for furniture parts.
Cold rolled steel is not as popular for agricultural and farming applications as hot rolled steel. However, cold rolled steel is the ideal choice for any steel application where aesthetics are important because, unlike hot rolled steel, it can be finished in a variety of ways.
Many mobility products take advantage of the strong weight-bearing properties of cold rolled steel. Cold rolled steel can also be plated, painted or coated, which makes it a durable and attractive choice for mobility products like handrails, wheelchairs and other walking assistants.
Computer Mounting Systems
Cold rolled steel boasts excellent dent resistance and the ability to carry the weight of heavy and delicate computer systems. This type of metal is a common choice for computer-cabinet hardware and other technology related applications.
Cold rolled steel is a widely used metal for heavy machinery products. As a durable and corrosion-resistant metal with low ductility, cold rolled steel can be used for engineering equipment, large machines, construction vehicles and hydraulics.
