Turned and polished bars are produced by a process of machining bars to a desired diameter. By having material turned and polished, the removal of the bars surface layer generally eliminates decarburization, seams, slivers and other surface imperfections. The value of the product can be increased by removing such surface defects. The finished bar can be machined with relative freedom from warpage. Because the surface layer is removed, turned and polished bars are especially well suited for induction hardening. By having bars turned and polished, it leaves a smooth shiny surface. At Jade Sterling Steel, we can have bars turned and polished to meet specific size tolerances without necessarily cold drawing the material. These bars are produced to a superior finish, a high level of concentricity, a defect free surface and optimum straightness.
