When working with any steel, but in particular wear resistant steels, it is imperative that you know the grain direction of the plate.
A steel plate’s grain direction comes from the mill’s rolling process, which stretches the metallurgical structure of the material. The grains run parallel to the rolling direction. (more…)
In any business, including the steel business, customer service will ultimately determine your success. Just like the restaurant business, if the waiter is not attentive or responsive to your requests, and it takes forever to get a drink or food, you probably will not return, no matter how great the food is.

If you’ve read our blogs on metals and alloys—particularly as they relate to ENDURA steel—you’ve probably heard the team from Titus Steel talking about tensile strength and yield strength. For those who are new to the steel game, we’re going to take a deep dive to explain what they mean. (more…)
A steel grizzly screen (sometimes referred to as a grizzly deck, a grizzly scalper, or a grizzly feeder) is a rugged heavy-duty type of screen that is placed just before the first crusher in a mine or quarry.

Making industrial steel is like baking a cake: various ingredients are mixed together according to a recipe and then baked at temperature. When it comes to industrial steel supply, the ingredients are elements found in the earth such as carbon, iron, and manganese—and, much like making a cake, changing the recipe can drastically change the end product.
