Round Bar is a long, cylindrical metal bar stock that has many industrial and commercial applications. Whereas The most common application is shafts. Standard diameters range from 1/4″ all the way up to 24″.
While we stock different kind and size of Round Bars in different Grades which follow:
- 4.6 / S275JR
- 8.8 / Grade 40Cr.
- Stainless Steel
|Material Grade||EN 8,EN9,EN18,EN19,EN24,EN 353|
Whereas some common applications of steel round bar include frameworks, supports, braces, shafts, and axles. Thus stainless steel round bars are highly corrosion resistant.
Hence the stainless steel will tolerate high levels of acidity and can be used in chlorine bearing environments or alkaline solutions. Bar stock is commonly processed by a sequence of sawing, turning, milling, drilling and grinding to produce a final product, often vastly different from the original stock. In some cases, the process is partially automated by specialized equipment which feeds the stock into the appropriate processing machine.
Most metal produced by a steel mill or aluminium plant is formed into long continuous strips of various size and shape. Then these strips are cut at regular intervals and allowed to cool, each segment becoming a piece of bar stock. Furthermore A good analogy is pasta-making, in which lumps of dough are extruded into various cross–sectional shapes; cut into lengths; and then dried in that form. Even so the cross-sectional shapes of pasta vary from simple bar or tube shapes to more elaborate extrusions.
The most common shapes are round bar (also called rod), rectangular bar (including square bar, the special case of equal sides), and hexagonal bar. Tube and pipe are similar, but have hollow centers and are traditionally not called “bar” in industrial usage. Also similar in concept, but not called “bar”, are the common structural shapes such as angle stock and channel stock. Therefore these are commonly available in steel and aluminum; the names “angle iron” and “channel iron” are still commonly used (informally) even though their literal namesake, wrought iron, has been replaced by steel and aluminum for most uses.
