These con rods were recently cut for a midlands based customer who suffered a breakdown in production after their existing rods which were cast cracked (see photo) we were able to quickly cut new rods and dispatch them. The main benefit to the customer of having these flame cut over cast is the speed at which they will be produced which if they fail again should mean less down time for their production operation.

They were cut from EN8 steel and were 220mm thick and 1662mm long x 830mm wide. In total they weighed 2.7tonns.
