Selecting pre-machined components is often a cost effective solution as it eliminates customers own stockholding, crosscutting and machining, as well as converting fixed costs to variable. Ovako has comprehensive resources for manufacturing pre-components in various grades of machining.
Our pre-components are produced with close tolerances combined with a high and even level of quality. Pre-components from bar can be produced from hot-rolled, peeled, ground or drawn bars. All executions are available in a wide range of sizes and steel grades.
