Featured Aluminum

We continue to expand our steel and metal production so that we can meet the heavy demands set by different industries that have sought us out for the quality materials that we provide.

Our centerless ground bar and aluminum round bar stock is but one from the vast extensive product line of aluminum selection that we have that is best used in aerospace and aircraft structure applications for its lightweight properties. 

Aside from aircraft construction, aluminum, and producing a variety of forged parts are also highly in demand in a wide range of industrial and manufacturing sectors including automotive, military defense, appliance, architecture, petrochemical process equipment, and marine industries.

Aluminum forgings possess excellent properties such as corrosion resistance and malleability as well as the strength-to-weight ratio that are well-suited for various conditions.

We at O’Hare Precision Metals are currently working on widening our capabilities to comply with the high requirements and requests of our busy customers. Our capacities involve prototypes, small to medium runs, and full production of quantities that way we can provide you with timely delivery of material supply to meet your needs and requests. 

We do our best to maintain a full inventory of aluminum alloys in a wide variant of sizes, shapes, weight, length, and finishes.

As an aluminum round bar supplier, we are also capable of performing professional machining operations as we have employed highly skilled experts to help us achieve high quality and precision in all the processes that we do.

Aluminum Grades

The aluminum grades that we possess demonstrate a wide variation of properties that are dependent on their alloying elements and have undergone heat-treated conditions.

Aluminum Grades

Aluminum grades exhibit ease of fabrication, good appearance, good corrosion resistance, high fracture toughness, good weldability, and high strength-to-weight ratio.

Each aluminum grade is characterized by its excellent mechanical and chemical properties and the elements found in its composition.

The selection of aluminum mainly depends on the intentions and applications necessary to achieve excellent working conditions. The intended application allows manufacturers and other material users to rank the characteristics and properties of each aluminum grade from least to the most important.

This somehow helps in narrowing down the lists of aluminum grades and their suitability in varying applications and treated conditions. There are important factors to consider in the selection of aluminum bar stock metal grades including weldability, workability, machinability, corrosion resistance, heat treating, and strength. These factors may greatly affect the performance of each aluminum grade when used.

We’ve managed to expand our capabilities in the manufacturing of aluminum steel bars in rounds, flats, and squares at O’Hare Precision Metal.

Stated below are the selections of aluminum grades that we have in store for you:

Aluminum Round Bars

Our aluminum round bar stock has been widely used in a lot of heavy-duty structures and marine environments.

Aluminum Round Bars

As an aluminum round bar supplier, we at O’Hare Precision Metals have made it our goal to provide our clients with only the best aluminum round bars throughout local and global locations.

Our aluminum bar stock metal is highly resistant to corrosive environments and suited for severe components and structures like machine parts, electrical fittings, worm gears, marine fittings, appliance fittings, fixtures, and truck components. 

A lot of industries have recognized that investing in a metal such as this comes with so many great advantages that you can make use of.

Aluminum round bars can also be made out of different aluminum grades and these bars may have a particular application or use, depending on the strength, and other mechanical properties exhibited by each aluminum grade. Some aluminum grades can easily be machined and welded into bars.

Within the annealed state, aluminum can allow standard methods to be used for cutting, drilling, stamping, deep drawing, bending, and tapping the material. Luckily, our professional operators are experienced in all phases of machining operations, that’s how they are able to help us produce quality aluminum round bars for a multitude of applications in varied industries from small to large sectors.

We are a precision grinding services provider that makes it a habit to stock up on aluminum round bars in varying sizes and finishes with tight tolerances and precision in diameter.

Aluminum Steel Bars

Aluminum steel bars are a lot more common in the market nowadays since they are normally used as raw material for machined and stamped cast products in varying industries.

Aluminum Steel BarsWe here at O’Hare Precision Metal have managed to extend our capabilities in the production of aluminum steel bars that are available in rounds, flat, or square. 

We all know that aluminum is best known for its high strength, anti-corrosion, thermally conductive, and low weight properties that are highly applied for structural, support, and high heat applications. 

There are properties that are found in aluminum round bars which allows them to be one of the most highly sought-after materials by engineers and manufacturers alike.

Below are some of the key characteristics that aluminum has to offer you:

  • Corrosion and high heat resistance
  • Electrically and thermally conductive
  • Lightweight and high strength
  • Accepts paints and coatings
  • Easily stamped, formed, welded, and machined

Common aluminum steel bar applications:

  • Gussets
  • Braces
  • Trim
  • Mounting plates
  • Enclosures
  • Motor and engine components
  • Hardware
  • Housing panels

Aluminum steel bars are best suited for heavy and rigorous applications that require great immunity against extreme wear, corrosion, and oxidation. Steel bars alloyed with aluminum exhibit the best mechanical properties which include low density, lightweight, corrosion resistance, malleability, toughness, and hardness. 

While aluminum is best known for its many properties that make it one of the trusted metals applied in each extremely corrosive environment. They are forged into different sizes, lengths, and diameters along with various finishes.
