Quality Bar custom-engineers bars for end users
Quality Bar understand the many trade offs involved when manufacturing TG&P bars. The trade offs have a lot to do with thru-put speed, which affects production costs. For example, compare the turning or peeling process to the way one cuts the grass. For a better looking lawn one has to overlap the cuts, the more the overlaps the better the results. It is the same with a peeler, the more the over laps, the better the quality. In the peeling process the overlaps are called wraps. Wraps are measured by how many overlaps there are per inch of length. There is an optimum number of wraps for each diameter and metallurgy, depending upon the surface quality one expects. The more the wraps, the lesser the thru-put and the higher the production cost. Conversely, the fewer the wraps, the more the thru-put and the lower the production cost.
Unlike when making a commodity bar, where one maintains a high thru put speed, when making a custom-engineered bars one optimizes the number of wraps. The tighter the tolerance the more wraps required.
Similar trade offs exist in the straighten process and the grinding process. Quality Bar's understands these trade offs and custom-engineer bars to match end users requirements.
