Available in a wide range of shapes, our bright bar grades eliminate processing steps and unnecessary stock build-up. This creates additional floor space in operations and/or warehouse and reduces capital tied up in raw material.

Lower stock and fewer production steps rationalizes production and reduces manufacturing costs. Clean production lowers maintenance costs and the production is greener with a minimum of chips handling.

Bright bar, as it also is named, is a substantial part of our further processed bar offering. It contains peeled bar, drawn bar, ground bar and finally pre-components. With outer diameter tolerances of ground bar down to IT 6 or cut bar length tolerances of only +/- 0.05 mm we can help you to rationalize your production by eliminating some of your operations. That enables you to focus on the more critical value-added processes.

Reducing global CO2 emissions demands smarter product solutions and requires rethinking on many levels: more performance benefits per kilogram of product, less raw materials, and substituting fossil fuel energy sources with primarily fossil-free electricity.

Advantages of further processed bars

  • Minimized risk of shocks and vibrations at high cutting speeds by using high and consistent quality bars from Ovako
  • Reduced need for further surface finishing
  • Just-in-time contract for deliveries according to specific needs
  • Lean production through a wide range of packaging solutions
  • Avoid spending CAPEX on non-core processes


We made it! But we are still not satisfied

What a journey! It took years of hard work to make our steelmaking operations more sustainable. In 2022, we went carbon neutral in all operations. But we´re still not satisfied - our journey towards steel production without CO2 emissions continues.
