Bars, i.e. oblong metal products, are divided into several types. One of the division criteria is the production technique. Therefore, we distinguish rolled and drawn bars. Each type is created during precise processing with the use of specialized machines. Rolled bars come out of special rolling mills, while drawing dies are used for the production of drawn bars. The product prepared in this way is then subjected to further treatments. The bars undergo grinding and flaking to remove value-degrading irregularities and blemishes from their surface. Another criterion for the division of bars is their cross-section. In this respect, we can divide them into round, square, rectangular and cubic. Rods with a circular cross-section and a diameter of up to a few millimeters are wires. We offer various types and sizes of bars. Our assortment includes products in popular sizes, but we also carry out special orders at the customer’s request. We invite you to familiarize yourself with the full range of rods available in our warehouse.
Bronze bars and other metal products
It is worth paying attention to bronze bars, which, due to their strength and other features desirable in various industries, are used for the production of precision elements, are exposed to high forces. Bronze, i.e. an alloy of copper with tin and other metals, is resistant to abrasion and corrosion. Hence, it is used in the construction of marine fittings, screws, gears, bearings and sliding sleeves. It is also often used in the manufacture of parts for hydraulic devices. The bronze rods we offer are made of high-quality materials, withstand changing loads well, do not wear off and are resistant to high temperatures. We produce bars from various grades of bronze, e.g. of tin, silicon, manganese, aluminum, phosphor and beryllium bronze.
Use of bars
Bars are widely used in many industries. They are particularly popular in construction, where they are used to strengthen the structure, but also in the production of agricultural machinery, cars, ships and planes. Depending on the specific use, different types of rods are preferred. Square bars are often used for the construction of fences, bridges and trusses, and flat bars for the production of industrial machinery. We provide advice in choosing the right products. Our wholesale offer includes brass bars, bronze, aluminum and copper bars.
Rolled and drawn bars
The process of rolling bars not only changes their shape but also their properties. During rolling, the nanostructure is distorted, which changes flexibility and strength depending on the rolling technique (cold or hot).
Bar drawing is a process that guarantees high precision in terms of element shapes and dimensions. The treatment causes the rod to stretch, which translates into a slight loss of flexibility and an increase in strength parameters. An additional advantage of the drawing process is obtaining a smooth surface of the bars.
