ROUGH TURNED BAR
Ellwood City Forge manufactures carbon, alloy, stainless, and other specialty steel rough turned bars using electric furnace, ladle refined, vacuum degassed steels in weights up to 110,000 pounds, lengths up to 57 feet long and diameters from 6 inches to 140 inches. Additional refining, via Vacuum Arc Remelting (VAR) or Electro Slag Remelting (ESR) can also be provided, when required. We have several sizes of electrodes available to handle most customer requirements.
ECF's forging facility consists of five hydraulic presses from 1000 to 5000 tons. Our standard practices insure all bars receive adequate forge reduction--all bars are ultrasonic tested to assure sound centers.
After forging, bars move through ECF's unique rough-turned "bar processing cell". Here lathes and auxiliary equipment are configured so that all operations are performed within the cell. This provides for increased efficiency and reliable, on-time delivery.
We offer complete heat treat capabilities including anneal, normalize and temper, solution treatment, quench (polymer, oil and water) and temper and stress relieve. Our testing and inspection capabilities include chemical analysis, mechanical testing, nondestructive testing including Level III ultrasonic, penetrant testing, and magnetic particle testing.
Our progressive manufacturing methods, along with our metallurgical expertise ensure that you get the highest quality bar product.
