Understanding the Importance of Flatness in Steel Plate Quality

When steel is described as “flat,” this refers to the surface condition of a steel plate or sheet. Specifically, flatness in steel indicates the material’s surface is even and uniform without significant waviness, twists, or warping. Flatness is critical for various applications where precision and consistency are required, such as in machinery manufacturing, construction, and automotive industries. (more…)

Understanding the Differences: Hot Rolled Steel vs. Cold Rolled Steel

When it comes to processing wear-resistant steel, there are many ways to go about it, including forging, casting, extrusion, machining, as well as hot and cold rolling. Each method has its unique advantages and can be selected based on the required properties and the intended use of the final steel product.

The main difference between hot rolled steel and cold rolled steel lies in the manufacturing process and the resulting properties of the finished products. Both processes involve the rolling of steel between two or more rollers, which compress the metal to a desired thickness. Somewhat like rolling dough with a rolling pin to make a pie crust, the processes of hot and cold rolling steel produce a product that can be trimmed to a desired width and length. (more…)
