Stainless Steel Flat Bar Machine

Midway Metals owns and operates Australia’s only slit rolled edge, flat bar machine. This addition to our processing technology dramatically reduces lead times and enables us to produce any width of bar – from 20mm to 200mm.

Flat Bars are long and rectangle-shaped metal bars that are used in a variety of engineering and architectural applications. Flat bars are often utilised for frame construction as they are easily cut to length and drilled or welded into place for framework. Stainless bars are considerably durable and are able to withstand significant construction weight, allowing them to be a great choice for this purpose. 

Using the slit band from our state-of-the art slitting line, the flat bar machine flattens, straightens, edges and cuts the finished bar into lengths from 2-6m. Custom lengths are available upon request, and innovative service can be used to support special projects as well as ongoing or recurring needs.

At Midway Metals we are proudly enabling Australian industries to deliver world-class products and projects through high-performance stainless steel. We are fully Australian owned and operated and pride ourselves on being the preferred choice for local manufacturers and businesses who need top-quality stainless steel that is fit for purpose and professionally processed. Contact us to talk about your stainless steel needs and how we can help your business or project shine utilising flat bar production or any of our other stainless steel processes.
