Pre-components from bar

Going for pre-machined components is often a cost-effective solution. It allows you to eliminate your own stockholding, crosscutting and machining. It opens up new possibilities to simplify production and to cut production costs, not least by converting fixed to variable costs.

Today, Ovako has comprehensive resources for manufacturing pre-components in various grades of machining. Our precomponents are produced with close tolerances combined with a high and stable level of quality.Pre-components from bar can be produced from hot-rolled, peeled, ground or drawn bar. All of these executions are available in a wide range of sizes and steel grades.

Chamfered blanks

Sawn off and chamfered according to the customer’s specifications.

Center hole drilled blanks

Blanks with sawn end surfaces, center drilled to the customer’s specifications.

Cut Blanks


Eliminate your non-core processes and improve profitability with Ovako precision-cuts. Our precision-cut offering includes just-in-time, or flexible, delivery and provides “greener” processes. Ovako‘s precision-cuts are made from peeled, ground or drawn bars and available in a wide range of sizes and more than 60 steel grades in our bar portfolio. Our offering includes chamfered blanks, centre-hole drilled and cut blanks.

Precision-cut quality

We offer secure and exact machining precision that can be tailor-made to your specifications. This includes customized rounded or chamfered radius. We deliver precision-cuts within close tolerances and a high, consistent product quality. Our length tolerances are+/- 0.05 mm, compared with the standard +/- 0.5 mm.Other specific tolerances can be arranged by agreement. Our precision-cuts are subject to rigorous testing and pre-production approval processes. Testing covers dimensional measurements, mechanical properties anisotropic qualities. We can guarantee the right quality, not the most expensive one, to meet your needs.

Efficient production

By using the Ovako precision-cut offering you can eliminate up to three of the following processes, and their associated costs:

  • Measuring and cut to exact length
  • Chamfering
  • Machining of radius
  • Centre-hole machining

Why not take advantage of our just-in-time delivery or ensure flexible delivery amounts suitable for you.The amount ordered can range from one piece to an unlimited amount. We deliver within 48 hours through a logistics agreement.

Chamfered blanks

We offer chamfered blanks that are sawn off and chamfered according to your specifications. The standard chamfered angle is 45o, or according to your requirements.

Size range: 10–105 mm diameter
Lengths: 25–1,800 mm

Centre-hole drilled blanks

We offer blanks with sawn end surfaces, centre drilled to your specifications.

Size range: 10–105 mm diameter
Lengths: 25–1,800 mm
