Over the years we have gained a good reputation for products suitable for applications when fatigue strength, toughness and wear resistance are critical. As well as meeting specified requirements, our bar products offer good formability, machinability and weldability, making them a cost-saving solution. Our hot-rolled bars can be further processed by heat treatment and chrome plating.
Our hot-rolled bars are characterised by close tolerances and excellent straightness. In addition, roundness, good surfaces and low decarburization makes our bars ideally suited for forging and machining.
A major part of our round bars is supplied as peeled, ground or drawn bright bars. The Ovako hot-rolled bar offering also contains round bars, flat bars, round corner squared bars, special properties bars, special profiles and precomponents plus our SR-100 Wire and the Cromax product family. All available in a variety of sizes.
