Peeled bar

Ovako’s peeled bars saves material, tools, machines and production time. Our bar peeling is a well-integrated production that uses precision equipment.

The peeled bar is supplied in a polished and straightened condition. This allows for smoother surface finish, closer tolerances and better straightness, plastic forming as well as further machining. Peeled bars gives customers the opportunity to rationalise production and reduce production costs. The extraordinary cleanliness of the steel reduces the risk of unexpected tool failures and downtime, and the excellent straightness minimises the risk of shocks and vibrations that can occur at high cutting speeds. The good surface finish of Ovako’s peeled bars can sometimes eliminate the need for further surface finishing. This saves material, machining and production time.


Ovako’s peeled bars is characterised by:

  • No surface defects
  • Decarburisation-free surface
  • Good surface smoothness
  • Close tolerances
  • Adjusted structure and hardness
  • Good ductility
  • Low content of non-metallic inclusions
  • Good machinability after forming
