Steel Plates

  1. 1.  Steel plates is a material often used to make products. Steel Plate is cut and welded together to achieve the final product. Mainly used for building ships, bridges, structure for buildings, pressure vessels, industrial machinery and military equipments, nuclear reactors, penstock, etc.
  2. 2. An overview of a general manufacturing process :
  3. 3.  Bridges Ships Buildings Offshore Structures Power Stations Storage Tanks Machinery Boiler and pressure vessels Floor for decks, stairs, bus, etc.
  4. 4. Rolling: Minimize internal flaw of the plate. Automatic dimension control. Reduces thickness deviation.Accelerated Cooling: Process of rolling and accelerated cooling. To produce high tensile steel without any heat treatment.Hot leveling: Residual stress is removed. to provide better flatness of platesUltrasonic Testing: Checks for flaws, such as blow holes, cracks,etc. Done to ensure quality.
