Below, read more about how bar milling is done and the services we offer at National Metal Fabricators.

What Types of Bar Milling Services Does National Metal Fabricators Offer?

National Metal Fabricators excels at continuous bar milling, a process sometimes referred to as conversion. In short, the process involves taking a flat bar, square bar, angle, channel, round rod or other structural metal shape and cutting it into a new, usable shape for construction or any other process. We do this by feeding material through a cutting fixture that mills the material into a new shape down the entire length. The end result is consistently milled from end to end, ready for use.

What Shapes and Materials Do We Work With?

When it comes to meeting customer needs, the team at National Metal Fabricators is very versatile. Our bar milling services are available for flat bar stock, angles, rounds, hex bars, channels and even customized shapes. We are proud to be able to accommodate any specifications you might request — regardless of complexity. Some of the shapes we specialize in include keyways, slots, bevels and steps. We also specialize in size reduction, milling materials down to a smaller dimension that keeps its original shape.

We have the tools and expertise to craft virtually anything you need, all in a timely manner. By using a series of specialized cutters and fixtures engineered for certain jobs, our proficient team can handle jobs of all kinds.
