Engineered Special Bar Quality

The Engineered Bar Products Division produces special-bar quality (SBQ) bars. Typically they are of high-strength carbon or alloy steel that is custom-formulated to meet specific customer design criteria. Engineered bars are sometimes referred to as “specialty bars.”

Round bars
These are most frequently used to make parts for rotating machinery applications. We produce standard lengths and a wide range of grades of high-quality round bars having diameters from 1 inch to 9 inches.

Round corner squares (RCS)
These are mainly used in forging steel parts. Round cornered squares are available in dimensions ranging from 2 to 8 inches and are available in standard lengths.

Reinforcing bars
We occasionally produce No. 5 to No. 11 rebar. These are typically custom-formulated for specific applications. 

Finished bars and testing services
Bar finishing services include straightening, turning, and polishing of round bars, plus precision saw-cutting, heat treating, demagging, non-destructive eddy current and roto-bar testing.
