We are a world-class supplier of engineering raw materials. Our objective is to provide all our customers, from the small machine shop to the large multi-national corporation, a supply path that continuously delivers the highest levels of service, quality and value.
Offering excellent corrosion resistance, our range of stainless steel hollow bars come in a variety of grades and sizes to suit your engineering and fabrication needs. Our stainless bar stock is also available in tighter incremental sizes which result in products which suit your size requirements literally 'off the shelf'.
Stainless steel hollows differ from tubular products because the material has a thicker internal wall. A hollow stainless bar offers similar strength and performance characteristics when compared to solid bars. However, it is lighter in this form and therefore provides potential cost reductions without negating performance in specific engineering applications. Processing cost reductions are also a feature - reduced machining times and machining steps, increased productivity, and reduced demand on tooling are all aspects to consider when purchasing stainless steel hollows instead of solid bar counterparts.
The product is ideal for applications where corrosion is a known issue, and it is more economical to use this shape than to bore our solid bar instead. Typical applications include components in architectural, medical, petrochemical, food processing and pharmaceutical.
We stock Stainless Steel Hollow Bar in a variety of grades.
Our knowledgeable staff and resident metallurgists will be pleased to assist you further on any technical topic. Smiths Metal Centres Limited also boasts an in-house UKAS Accredited Testing Laboratory which is unique within the multi-metal and plastic stockholding sector. We believe this underlines our total commitment to quality and our ethos of being the complete service provider.
