Little Falls Alloys is a mill specializing in custom redraw and electroplating of wire.
Little Falls Alloys produces wire in round, square, flat and shaped varieties. Wire can be made on spools, coils and cut to straight lengths. The company specializes in non-ferrous copper based alloys. A pioneer in the use of Beryllium Copper, Little Falls Alloys maintains a competitive advantage over many redraw mills with its experience and proprietary manufacturing processes. The firm draws wire to the tightest tolerances and smallest sizes.
Little Falls Alloys is a job shop and only stocks raw material to be drawn. Our plating department plates with most precious metals as well as copper and nickel. Many of our customers use our wire for springs of all sizes and designs. Other area of business include the automotive, aviation, telecommunication and medical device industries.
Customized wire is made at the company to supply an ever changing demand. We meet customers specifications at all levels of certifications and sophistication. We manufacture in Paterson and ship from our location. Customers can rely on timely delivery and high quality wire.
The unparalleled combination of strength, hardness and resistance to corrosion has made beryllium copper a very attractive non-ferrous metal that has found its way into many industrial materials and products. This alloys ability to maintain shape during periods of repeated stress and strain has made beryllium copper an essential and proven part of the spring industry. Since its introduction to the spring industry, use has risen geometrically for many participants. Roughly 2% beryllium in this non-ferrous copper metal also makes a measurable difference in improving strength and electrical conductivity.
The production of beryllium wire was pioneered in the 1940’s by the Paterson, NJ company, Little Falls Alloys. The company has maintained its reputation as an expert in the production of various sizes of wire. As the demand for smaller and smaller diameters has occurred, Little Falls Alloys has continued its leadership role in the making of fine wire from beryllium copper 172 alloy. Bare, gold and silver plated, this ductile and machinable alloy continues to be a leader in the product line of Little Falls Alloys.
