Aluminum Round Bars
The precursor of aluminum round bars are cast and heat treated slabs with round diameter, called billets.
Cast billets are available up to a diameter of approx. 39.4 in. and they are mostly used in smaller sections for further processing in extrusion. During the extrusion the heated section of the billet will be pressed by mechanical or hydraulic pressure through a round mold.
The result is a aluminum round bar with a specific diameter. With special mechanical and thermal post-treatments the particular properties of the different alloys can be improved. Round bars are often used for the production of rotationally symetric parts, shafts or axis. Cuttings of round bars with a bigger diameter are also used for the manufacturing of round indexing tables.
