Glass Industry
United Cast Bar supplies Unibar material into the glass industry sector for various applications: Continuous Cast Iron material is used by major manufacturers of glass products. Unibar is used for the production of glass bottles as well as float glass applications. Unibar GF and Unibar GP are the primary materials used for the production of glass moulds and glass mould neck rings. Unibar GF and Unibar GP are used to replace sand castings and offers a microstructure of interdendritic graphite in a ferritic matrix. Unibar GF and Unibar GP are titanium treated which gives a very fine graphite matrix. The fine graphite produces an exceptionally fine polished finish, perfect for the manufacture of glass bottles where a highly polished finish is required. Unibar material is also used for the production of float glass. United Cast Bar manufacture carrying rollers manufactured from Unibar ADI material. Unibar ADI offers a unique combination of toughness and wear resistance. Strengths of over 1500 MPa (216,000 psi) can be developed, similar to that of high tensile steels. Unibar ADI retains its beneficial properties such as excellent machinability, vibration and noise damping capacity, 10% weight reduction and high wear resistance due to the self lubricating network of graphite.

Manufacturing Process
Manufacturing Process The Unibar horizontal continuous casting machine consists of four major units: A holding furnace with liquid-cooled dies. A pulling unit. A notching and breaking device. A control panel that regulates the flow of coolant and the speed of casting, and co-ordinates the function of the other three components of the machine. As can be seen from the animation, in the closed system a liquid-cooled die is built into the holding furnace so that the liquid metal enters the die without coming into contact with the atmosphere. Because the bar is pulled horizontally, the metal flows more uniformly and is always subjected to a much higher ferrostatic pressure than in sand castings. This, combined with rapid cooling in the die, ensures superior soundness, good surface finish and homogenous structure as well as excellent structural cohesion throughout the section. As a result, the outside rim (periphery) is solid the moment it leaves the die and cooling system (which conforms the profile shape), while the core remains liquid. Due to the fast cooling, the periphery has very fine graphite in a predominant ferritic matrix with a high material cohesion; much higher than is obtained with sand casting. It should be noted that the bars, particularly in larger sizes, will have some ‘A’ type graphite while the outer region will have either fine dendritic or rosette type formation. The lack of porosity, slag and other inclusions are ensured by the Unibar process which, together with other advantages ensures a much better fatigue strength. The starter bars are inserted into graphite die prior to filling the holding furnace. Liquid metal, on entering the die, freezes on the protruding bolts and is then gradually extracted by means of standard round pulling bars connecting the starting blocks with the drive mechanism. After the newly cast material has passed the pulling mechanism, the pulling bars are disconnected and the material itself is notched and broken into individual bars, which are commonly 2 – 4 metres long. The quality of the material can be readily checked by observing fresh fractures on every length of bar produced.

Steel Manufacturing
Unibar ADI is primarily used for applications such as rock drill heads and rock drill pistons. They present substantial advantages over other material types. Reliability is one of the key factors when specifying Unibar ADI. The cost of downtime due to failure or late delivered parts can run into 000''s per hour. Unibar ADI guarantees reliable, on-time deliveries backed by a technical expertise second to none. Manufacturers utilise the superior qualities of Unibar ADI to achieve significantly improved machining times which leads to overall cost savings with improved mechanical characteristics. Unibar ADI is currently operational in several tube forming facilities across Europe. The machinability of all the Unibar grades of iron is such that complex forms, bores and keyways can be machined up to 50% faster than in tool steel and forged steel. In cold metal forming applications, the presence of graphite in the microstructure has improved productivity on materials that are prone to producing dust and swarf during the rolling operation such as galvanised coated steel. Additionally Unibar ADI is used in cold aluminium rolling where the aluminium is prone to stick to tool steel.

Testimonials
"I have been putting Timbrenson all of my plow vehicles ever since I heard of them 8 years ago. They are agreat product and good investment for anyone in the snow removal business." Aaron - Lakewood, Ohio "Great price fast shipping,would buy from you again." John - Georgetown, Mass. "I have heard very good reviews on this prouduct. I am looking forward to using the system." Bob - Layton, Utah "I bought a Timbren SES Kit for one of my pickup trucks from a local dealer, then I found your site. I was so impressed with the ride improvement when loaded down, that I am buying another kit from you for my other pickup. You have the best price I could find, and you will have my business again in the future." David - Hampton, NH "This past winter I put a snow plow on my 1/2 ton Dodge truck. Since the truck was not designed to support a Plow on the front, I was having troubles with the front end sagging and the mount scraping on the ground over bumps. After installing timbren rubber supports for the front end, I gained clearance for the mount and the truck rested on the rubber and did not sag as much. After talking to some snowplow owners in my area, I have sold them on the timbrens also. I own a Auto Repair Shop and I continue to tell the story to customers." Tony - Clyde, OH "I have co-workers that have your system on their trucks and I see the difference it makes in handling and caring heavier loads, so I have to put it on my dually. I use it to haul cars with a wheel lift and Ii know it''s gong to make a world of difference for me too..." Laurice Puckett - Kirkland, IL "Great service, quality product." RP - Mechanicville, NY "Timbren kits are a cinch to install. I''ve used these on two other vehicles. No pneumatic lines or leaks to worry, they just go to work as soon as they are bolted on. Great product, Thanks." Mike - Freeland, Michigan "We have a fifth wheel livestock trailer. When loading the overhead with calves, the 3/4 ton Ford pickup rear sags excessively. Adding Timbren to the rear end of the truck fixed the problem. Thanks." Paul - Manlius, NY "I own a 2007 f250 and I had a salt dog spreader in the rear. It was shooting salt at an angle and not speading far. I got the timbrens in the rear and the front for the plow. Now the truck is level and the salt spreads correctly when I start with a full load. Everything works better, and the drivetrain is working in a normal position. It will have less wear and tear in the rear and the front. Thanks Timbren!! I''m ordering a set for my new f350, which has a bigger plow and needs the timbrens up front!!! Just makes sense to have them!!!" Michael - East Greenbush, NY "I received the springs and have them installed. Thanks for your fine product." Kyle "I purchased a set of DVR05091 on Monday the 8th of Dec. 2008, and I received the product on Tuesday the 9th in the afternoon. I am very satisfied with the service that you give and the product works perfectly. My first set was installed on our 2004 Dodge Sprinter 2500, and it did improve a lot of the stability and the leveling of the vehicle. Keep up the good work. Thanks." Pierre - Canada "I ordered my first set of Timbrens and I got an email confirmation. The Timbrens came to me super fast. I have no complaints." Edgar - Wilton, CT “Very fast shipping! Very easy to deal with” Byard - Heber Springs, AR “ The Timbren system is great! I own a Hotshot trucking company and with as much as 15k loads on my gooseneck, I get no sway on my f350 pickup. I also don''t have to worry about leakage or punctures to the bags. Great system and I''m adding two more pair to other trucks now in the fleet.” Don - longmont, CO “ I ordered a set of Timbrens last year for my Chevy 2500HD. I called to learn of how Timbrens could work for me and I got a lot more info then what I asked for. I wasn''t sure how to adjust the trucks torsion bars but the sales person helped me out.” E&S Landscaping - Wilton, CT “ It was so easy to make my purchase using your online store and I was pleasantly surprised to also get a store discount of $20.00. Your price is the best I could find. Thankyou very much” Vern - Edmonds, WA “ I bought a set for my Dodge Caravan and it made a great difference when towing. When not towing, the vehicle ide on its usual suspension. I highly reccommend these parts. I am about to order another set for my Linc Navagator. Great price in comparrison to local auto merchants. Install is a snap.” Eduardo - Cascade, MD “ I sold a wood splitter and about 5 pickup truck loads of wood to my neighbor,he came over last night to get a couple loads of the wood.now i just purchased a 1500 chevy pick up.anyway we where loading his pickup with the wood and i ask him (is your truck a 1 ton)he said no its a 1/2 ton.i said wow ,what do you have xtra springs put in,he said no i have timbren rubber kits installed.i was very impressed,i''m going to put them on mine (no question)” Richard - Berlin, NY “ I purchased my first set of Tembren''s from Albany Spring. That was in 2005. I had to call them about a question I had for my old ''98 K2500 Chevy truck. I found them to be knowledgeable and courteous. Didn''t matter if I bought or not, but I did come back later and bought a set. Shipping was fast, and the kit was the correct one for my application. I will order from them again.” Snakeman - Niles, MI “ Timbrens are the best product in the catagory, period! Albany Spring offers the best price and quick quality service!” Chris - Great Falls, MT
