Bar Stock has its day
The usage of bar stock in hydraulics has long been an integral part of components and systems. Now, bar stock is recognized for its huge contribution to fluid power in the June 2015 Fluid Power Handbook.
Bar stock is typically used to make manifolds to direct fluid through a system. As we at Fluid Power World cover hydraulic systems in their entirety, we felt it important to include the material used to make manifolds as well as for mounting components.
