In every industry, there is a strong need for iron and steel products. Be it to make the machinery or to create the goods that the industry specializes in or in order to package the manufactured products, there is always a need for the steel products. Though there are two major types of steel products such as the flat steel products and the long steel products, the long steel ones are really very useful and high on demand. However, before you go on purchasing them for your industrial needs, it is a must that you know about the usage of these products.
Types of long steel products:
- Billets and blooms: These are mainly used in manufacturing the other long steel components. The billets are comparatively shorter and the blooms are the larger versions of the billets. These ms beams are obtained by rolling the ingots and casting the steel.
- Bars: From the billets and blooms, the bars are manufactured. These are usually of two major types – the merchant types and the rebar or the reinforcement bars. Flat, round, square, ms channels, angles and different other types of the merchant bars are available in the market. The rebar on the other hand is used to strengthen the other elements. The usage of these bars railings of stairs and furniture and in manufacturing the equipment for farms and agricultural needs. The rebar is used is in construction purposes like bridge, highway and building.
- Wire products: Ring shaped coils and ms rounds are used in manufacturing the wire rods. In construction, automotive and engineering industries and in welding purposes, these have a prominent usage. In fact, these wire rods are used in manufacturing springs, fasteners, electric wires, cables and conductors.
How are they manufactured?
The ms long steel product or the mild steel long products are manufactured by using molten and liquid metal raw material. These are purchased from the steel melting shop. Depending on the requirement, the molten steel is cast into the billets, blooms, bars and wires and others. These are then sold to the buyers, depending on their requirements.
How to choose the best suppliers?

The best way to choose a supplier is to go through their client base. The ones that have SAIL or JINDAL as their clients, is a good manufacturer and supplier.
