Round Bar

Round Bar is a cylindrical metal bar with a circular cross-section. It is one of the most common and versatile forms of metal stock, used in various applications across different industries.



Round bars can be made from a variety of materials, including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, and other alloys. The choice of material depends on factors such as strength requirements, corrosion resistance, and specific application needs.


The dimensions of a round bar are typically specified by its diameter, which is the distance across the circular cross-section. Common diameters range from a fraction of an inch to several inches, and the dimensions are usually specified in inches or millimeters.


Construction: Round bars are used in construction for various purposes, such as structural elements, supports, and reinforcement.

Manufacturing: They are utilized in the manufacturing of machinery, tools, and components where cylindrical shapes are required.

Shafts and Axles: Round bars are often used for creating shafts and axles due to their rotational symmetry.

Fasteners: They are employed in the production of fasteners like bolts and screws.

Machining and Fabrication: Round bars are easily machinable and can be fabricated to suit specific requirements. Machining processes include turning, milling, and drilling.

Strength and Versatility: Round bars are valued for their strength, versatility, and ease of handling. They can be cut, welded, and shaped to fit various applications.

Finishes: Round bars can have different finishes based on the material and application. Finishes may include plain (uncoated), polished, or coated for improved corrosion resistance.

Stainless Steel and Special Alloys: In applications where corrosion resistance is crucial, stainless steel round bars or special alloy round bars may be used.
