Everyone is familiar with grandma’s well-seasoned cast iron pan, but cast iron in its bar form is also used by many industries for various applications due to its many machining advantages over carbon and alloy steel – often machinists can turn out more parts per hour when using cast iron.

Industrial Metal Supply has sold cast iron to industries including construction, industrial machining, automotive and transportation. Common applications for cast iron include bearings, bushings, housings, piststainlons, and valve components.

Cast iron bars are one of the most versatile—and therefore widely used—materials for industrial applications. Cast iron offers a number of advantages over carbon steel and alloy steels, as it exhibits greater strength, excellent machinability, and high wear and deformation resistance. In most cases, machinists can produce more parts per hour from cast iron bars than from other similar materials.

Applications for Cast Iron Bars

Because they are so durable and easy to work with, cast iron bars are used in a wide range of applications. Common industrial applications for cast iron bars include:
  • Construction and architecture
  • Tools and utensils

  • and more
