Turning is a process of machining bars to a desired size. By having material Rough Turned, the removal of the bars surface layer generally eliminates decarburization, seams, slivers and other surface imperfections. The value of material 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 bars are especially well suited for induction hardening. Rough turned bars may be polished following machining, leaving a smooth shiny surface. By having material rough turned, Jade Sterling Steel is able to provide a product with a superior finish, a high level of concentricity, a defect free surface and optimum straightness.
