If you’re in the market for steel bar products, look no further than the extensive inventory at Samuel. For more information on our industry-leading products please review the charts below or contact us with questions.
Alloy Steel Bar
Alloy bars are most commonly hot rolled or hot rolled heat treated – and we certainly offer those. However, we also offer them in cold finished in case you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary.
If increased strength, toughness, wear resistance and fatigue resistance are top priorities for you, then alloy bars are the way to go. Some of their most common uses include: camshafts, axles, shafts, pistons, gears and bearings.
Cold Finished Bar
Cold finished steel bars are generally used for machined parts and shafting, however, exact uses vary by series type.
Those in the 1000 series would typically be used for: shafting, conveyors, furniture and display systems.
Those in the 11XX series are resulfurized steels designed for improved machinability, like gears, pinions, rotors and heavy duty threaded fasteners.
Finally, the 12XX series represents resulfurized and rephosphorized steels for screw machined parts, typically with high speed CNC machines. Common applications include: screws, nuts, hose couplings, connectors and small shafts.
Lead is added to 11XX and 12XX series steel, to improve machinability, they will become 11LXX or 12LXX.
