See you at Tube 2016 (Messe Dusseldorf, Germany, 4-8 April) for the exclusive launch of our new seamless tube, M-Steel® 280, for component design and machinability advantages.
The use of hollow bar, close to finished component sizes, can eliminate a complete machining process where a central bore is required in a component. This can significantly cut down on production time, reducing component costs and increasing profitability. Major advantages of using M-Steel 280 tube are higher cutting speeds and conversely increased tool life.
Also new from Ovako is the addition of new sizes in the range of ultra clean, surface removed and inspected Ovako SR-100 wire, which delivers improved and consistent product quality. Available in a variety of steel grades and a range of sizes now from 11 – 26.5 mm diameter, SR-100 wire can be supplied zinc phosphate, soap coated and/or oiled. The cleaner, defect-free and consistent quality of the steel wire enables fine tuning of production methods, including robotic, and can significantly reduce machining resulting in less waste and a better working environment ensuring high quality of finished products.
