Rough Turning


Turning Steel Bars

Northlake adds value to a hot roll bar by Rough Turning.  This process removes surface defects such as seams, scabs, slivers and decarburization, while holding tight O.D. size tolerances.  We can Turn and Polish (Turn & Burnish) to provide a defect free surface, better surface finish and straightness.

We have two turning lines, sometimes called bar peelers, with a size range of 1” to 4-1/2” and two lathes that can turn up to 30” diameter by 32’ lengths.

Turning is a very cost effective means of resizing existing, damaged or aged inventory.
