With over 2 million billets cut at our warehouse per year, our ISO 9001:2000 approved rod blanking service will cut your bars to your machining requirements. We are capable of handling solids and most sections without any marking or crushing.
If you're currently buying your raw material in full bars only to cut them down to more manageable billets, it may be worth considering our rod blanking options. We currently cut over two million billets a year and with volumes like that we are able to employ scale-efficiencies that reduce our cutting costs to a minimum which we can pass on to our customers.
Each of our service centres is equipped with full rod blanking facilities but they're also backed-up by our ultra-high volume CNC machines located at our central cutting operation.
