Bar Products

Bar metal service centers carry a wide range of grades and/or alloys in many different sizes. Sales staff need to be able to locate material with specific metal standards (ASTM, ASME, EN, etc.) and/or chemical or mechanical test results (40 to 45 PSI, for example). Specialty processes such as heat treatment, turning, and trepanning are also offered, performed in-house or at outside processors.

INVEX ERP software enables bar companies to quickly take and ship orders with minimal steps. It also easily handles complex orders with multiple processing steps. This blend of simplicity with complexity is a key attribute in yielding operationally efficient, sales-oriented organizations.

INVEX metal and steel software accommodates all metals (carbon, alloy, aluminum, stainless, titanium, copper and brass, etc.) across all metal forms (angles, bars, structural, pipe and tubing, plate and sheet, wire mesh, rebar, coil, etc.).
