Bar Stock

Central Wire manufactures bars up to 0.750 inches (19.05 mm) to your specifications for parameters such as tensile strength, Rockwell hardness, diameter tolerance, and length. Material is usually supplied to 12 foot (3.65 m) random lengths. When required, bars are supplied centerless ground to meet high custom tolerances.

The through-feed centerless grinding process ensures high productivity. The object being ground is held between two grinding wheels during the centerless grinding process. One of the wheels remains stationary and serves as a stabilizer, while the other wheel moves slightly and aids in the regulation of the grinding process. Material is bundled by individual lot to ensure full traceability back to the mill source.

  • Long, round bars are ground using the thru-feed grinding method. The workpiece (bar) is fed into the grinding machine, pulled past the grinding wheel by the regulating wheel, and then flies out on the opposite side. Long bars and tubes are commonly used in automotive and engineering applications.
  • For grinding steel materials with relatively complex shapes and geometric figures, the infeed grinding method is used. To allow the abrasive cutting motion to remove excess parts, the workpiece is held stationary in the blade. The machine can grind even the smallest diameters thanks to three-point positioning. Best suited for camshafts and gear shafts.
