Chase Brass Rod Manufacturing Finishing Process
At Chase Brass and Copper Company, pickled coil or straight rod is transferred to finishing machines. There, the brass rod is cold drawn to the finish size requested, cut to length, straightened, chamfered and bundled to customer specifications.
When conducted under strict quality guidelines, cold drawing brass rod creates:
- Correct diameter
- Excellent surface condition
- Hardness of material
Chase Brass integrates Eddy Current testing equipment into its production to verify that brass rod surfaces meet industry standards.
Brass rod is cut precisely to length: 10 – 16 foot.
In 2000, Chase Brass completed its Project 400 at the mill which added finish lines which provide production flexibility and additional capacity to meet customer needs.
