Less Common Metals Ltd is a world leader in the manufacture and supply of complex alloy systems and metals, and are specialists in those based on rare earth elements.
LCM processes are focussed around vacuum induction melting of alloys. The form of these materials varies from powders, through cast alloy ingots and cast shapes to rapidly cooled flake generated by strip casting. All of these materials include rare earth and non-rare earth containing alloys. We are continuously working to develop and secure a sustainable supply chain of rare earths.
With many years’ experience in the production of materials to tight compositional tolerances and controlled microstructures, LCM offers an innovative and highly flexible approach to a wide range of material requirements.
