Bright steel is characterised, among other things, by its good machinability and a flat, smooth surface. This is achieved either by non-cutting cold forming or machining. For more than 40 years, WIEHLSTAHL has been your tool, stainless and bright steel dealer with a complete steel service. Thanks to our many years of experience, we can offer you short delivery times and absolute reliability.
As a bright steel trader, we count numerous companies from the industrial sector among our customers. These come from a wide variety of sectors, such as mechanical engineering and toolmaking. Companies from special machine construction or the supplier industry of the automotive sector also trust in the high quality of our steel products and services as well as in our know-how when they buy steel from us. Important areas of application for bright steel are, for example, drive shafts, cutter shafts in kitchen machines as well as various pins, bolts and axles.
Bright steel is usually produced with a square, round, rectangular or even hexagonal cross-section. We also offer steel in these shapes. In addition, we offer the materials 1.0037 and 1.0050 in angular form. The decisive factor for a decision in favour of bright steel is usually the various advantages that the material can offer in comparison to hot-rolled steel: In addition to the smooth surface, a higher dimensional accuracy comes into play. Furthermore, internal and surface defects can be better controlled. In the case of drawn steel, the increased surface strength also plays a role; depending on the design, the surface can be additionally refined. In summary, the user benefits from reduced effort during processing as well as higher productivity and lower material losses.
