Alcoa Engineered Products (AEP), innovation leader in the aluminium industry, is introducing ACC-U-BAR, a premium, high-performance extruded square and rectangular bar product. AEP announced today that it will add ACC-U-BAR to its family of branded bar products. ACC-U-BAR will be available in the 3rd quarter of 2004. AEP is a leading supplier of extruded aluminium products to the distribution, commercial transportation, industrial and consumer markets.
ACC-U-BAR was developed for applications requiring tighter tolerances and reduced twist such as the telecom and manifold bar markets. ACC-U-BAR features superior machinability and straightness and represents the next generation of precision bar products for AEP. "Expanding the AEP family of tight tolerance, superior machining, branded products was in direct response to our customer's need for improved productivity and reduced waste in machining operations," said Jay Grissom, Product Manager. "Interest in ACC-U-BAR has already exceeded our expectations."
