Steel Plates

Hot Rolled Steel Plates

Hot rolled steel plate is made by heating it until it is malleable, and putting it through rollers until it is the desired thickness.

Hot rolled metals generally have little directionality in their mechanical properties and deformation induced residual stresses. However, in certain instances non-metallic inclusions will impart some directionality and workpieces less than 20 mm (0.79 in) thick often have some directional properties.

Hot rolled mild steel seems to have a wider tolerance for amount of included carbon than cold rolled, making it a bit more problematic to use as a blacksmith. Also for similar metals, hot rolled seems to typically be less costly.

Hot rolling is used mainly to produce sheet metal or simple cross sections.

Cold Rolled Steel Plates

Cold rolled steel plate is made by putting it through rollers until it reaches the required thickness. Cold rolling occurs with the metal below its recrystallization temperature (usually at room temperature), which increases the strength via strain hardening up to 20%. It also improves the surface finish and holds tighter tolerances.

Commonly cold-rolled products include sheets, strips, bars, and rods; these products are usually smaller than the same products that are hot rolled.

Typical uses for cold rolled steel include metal furniture, filing cabinets, shelves, tables, chairs, computer cabinet and hardware, all home appliances and components, hinges, tubing, steel drums, lawn movers, electronic cabinetry, metal containers, and a variety of construction-related products.
