We have a wide range of materials from round rods, rectangular rods, and hexagonal rods in brass – all of very high quality.
W5000 round rods and W5006 hexagonal rods are precision brass rods that fulfill stringent parameters in all areas pursuant to the guidelines prescribed in EN 12164.
The rods have good machining properties, which results in very fine and uniform chips and less wear on tools during the machining process. This is due to a low content of impurities, an adjusted beta content, and a homogeneous lead distribution in the metal.
The precision brass rods have reduced diameter tolerances and a minimal ovality.
The W5000 precision round rods have a maximum deviation in straightness of 0.05 mm per meter, while the W5006 precision round rods have a maximum deviation in straightness of 1 mm per meter for surface measurements between 10 and 30 mm and a maximum deviation in straightness of 1.5 mm per meter for surface measurements between 30 and 60 mm.
In each case, the figures indicated above are parameters that help to streamline the machining process and protect the tools.
W5000 rods with a diameter up to 30 millimeters and 5006 rods with a diameter up to 16 millimeters are delivered pointed and beveled pursuant to EN 12164.
