Smiths High Performance is a stockist of magnesium bar products, which are ideal for use in motorsport applications due to the alloys excellent strength to weight ratio. We stock bar products in a variety of lengths and diameters to ensure that we have material which is suitable for your machining requirements.
While magnesium is a potentially volatile material, the alloy is relatively straightforward to cut. Magnesium has a much lower cutting resistance when compared to most alloys (only 55% of the power required to cut aluminium) and is usually cut dry. Although powder and dust produced during the cutting process are incredibly flammable, safe storage practices and the use of sharp cutting tools will eliminate risk.
We have all the necessary experience and expertise to process your magnesium bar products in-house, and to lengths which suit your requirements. Our 'cut to size' service is an attractive proposition to our customers due to the potential hazards encountered during processing.
We pride ourselves in offering the highest standards of quality. All materials under our care carry a unique bar code which offers complete traceability. Quality plays an integral part in everything that we do. Our bespoke IT platform provides a fully embedded quality management system to ensure that the best quality practices are observed.
We offer magnesium round bar in the following grades:
