Finishing Options

Bar Cutting / Rod Blanking

Processing Services

Our bar cutting service processes more than 2 million billets every year. We also supply bars in standard lengths.

With over 2 million billets cut at our warehouse per year, our ISO 9001 approved rod blanking service will cut bars to more manageable sizes.

If you are currently purchasing your raw material in full bar lengths to cut them down to more manageable billets, it may be worth considering our rod blanking options. The high volumes and scale we process our bar stock enable us to scale efficiencies that reduce our cutting costs to a minimum, and we pass these efficiencies on to our customers.

We have no minimum processing quantity and will process even down to one blank. We also offer pin marking and chamfering as part of our bar cutting service.

Get Ahead

Component manufacturing processes often begin with many simple, repetitive cutting operations. By utilising our additional processing services, you will be able to free up your skilled workforce and their machines to concentrate on the part of your manufacturing process that adds value. Our in-house processing operations promote cost savings for your business from reduced scrap, paperwork, and inspections. In many cases, it is even possible to reduce machinery costs.
