Stainless steel Round Bars

Stainless steel has outstanding characteristics essential in a wide variety of applications.

Stainless Steel Round Bar Stock Rods

STAINLESS STEEL Round Bar Stock

In focus, stainless steel round bar stock manifests excellent resistance to corrosion, oxidation, and with proper machining, it will result in a smooth surface finish.

It is also interesting to note that a stainless steel bar stock has 12% percent of chromium content responsible for its good corrosion resistance.

 

Yet, that’s not the only thing the chromium content does for stainless steel as it also contributes to improving its ductility, hardness, high strength, workability, and formability.

Additionally, stainless steel bars are low-cost as they are 100% recyclable and recoverable which industries swipe such an opportunity and use a stainless steel round bar stock transforming it into a centerless ground bar, hot-rolled bar, cold rolled bar, cold-rolled steel bar, or even precision-ground steel bar in applicable areas of their businesses. 

A stainless steel round bar stock can already do a lot of things which is why it is often the most chosen material for various metalworking operations of centerless grinding, saw cutting, turning, and more.

Forte Precision Metals sees the demand for supplies of stainless steel round bars, whether in round or centerless ground bar form, from a wide range of industries.

Accordingly, we always strive hard in providing high-quality round or ground bars intended for various applications.

At present, we provide to a lot of companies from a wide range of industries such as the automotive, medicine, aircraft, construction, oil and chemical processing, and military equipment industries, to name but a few. 

We continue to improve in every way we can and be the most dependable stainless steel round bar supplier here, in the Midwest. 

STAINLESS STEEL BAR SHAPES

With how versatile stainless steel is, it is no wonder that stainless steel bars and rods come in different shapes formed according to their intended applications. 

Forte Precision Metals, the reliable stainless steel round bar supplier to most companies here in the Midwest, specializing in supplying stainless steel round bar stock, also accept custom-made orders befitting clients’ specifications such as turning all of it into a hot-rolled, cold-rolled bar, or precision ground bar stock

Stainless steel is used in nearly all typical applications, creating trim, shafts, braces, awnings, and even the framework of a building which is why we intend to match the steel’s versatility by providing applicable grinding and other machining operations with it. 

Forte Precision Metals, an all-rounder stainless steel round bar supplier, also caters to requests of stainless steel in hex, square, or flat bars and even transforms them into a cold rolled bar, hot rolled bar, cold-rolled steel bar, or have the entire stock turn into precision ground bar stock depending on your industry’s specifications.

STAINLESS STEEL ROUND BAR GRADES

Stainless steel bar grades differ in properties and elemental compound composition and as such, Forte Precision Metals offers a stainless steel round bar stock in numerous grades.

These stainless steel bars are evaluated and grouped according to the machining process they will undergo whether cold-rolling, hot rolling, or precision grinding processes. 

These particular metalworking processes, which Forte Precision Metals offers, bring out the best of the stainless steel, and depending on its expected application, they will end up having a finished product of either cold-rolled bar, cold-rolled steel bar, precision-ground steel bar, or an entire precision ground bar stock.  

However, one cannot just simply use any stainless steel grade for whatever industrial application, it is necessary that the appropriate stainless steel grade is used according to a specific industrial application. 

By classifying them into appropriate stainless steel grade, proper machining and grinding applications will be used to transform round bars into a hot rolled bar, cold rolled bar, cold-rolled steel bar, precision-ground steel bar, or an entire stock into precision ground bar stock. 

Below is a list of the grades of the stainless steel round bar stock that Forte Precision Metals, your trusted stainless steel round bar supplier, offers:
