We have bones of steel the next step is to pour it into cooled moulds. This causes the metal to cool quickly. Once cooled the metal is then cut into desired lengths depending upon the application e.g.: slabs and plates, blooms for sections such as beams and billets for long products such as wiring or thin pipes.
Also known as Primary Forming, the initial shapes of slabs, blooms, and billets are formed into their various shapes usually by hot rolling. Products that are hot rolled are then divided into flat products, long products, seamless tubes, especially products for one last stage of processing.
The Manufacturing, Fabrication & Finishing Process
Finally, a variety of secondary forming techniques including shaping, machining, jointing and coating give the products their tall –tale shapes and properties.
So there you have it, the entire steelmaking process in six steps if you are in need of particular metal part then why not contact us. We have skills and the experience to construct just about anything you want.
