The I-Beam is a unique steel section. I-Beam is composed of a vertical web and horizontal flanges at both webs end. Its cross-section is very similar to the letter-I.
I-Beam is generally distinguished by the cross-sectional shape. Manufacturing techniques are generally hot rolling, welding, riveting or cold forming. I-beams are mainly for industrial use.
Because I-Beam has good strength and toughness, it is widely used in high-rise buildings, bridges, automobile manufacturing, and other steel structure buildings. It is a standard structural material used for bearing transverse to longitudinal axis (web) load.
Hot-rolled I beam can carry out a lot of further processing to meet the project’s needs. The flange portion of the I-Beam is tapered in the section for increased strength and bearing capacity.
Applications of I-Beam
I-Beam is used as a link or support material for building structures, bridges, elevated runways, etc., and sometimes in the construction of underground facilities.
I-Beams are used as horizontal steel structures to absorb vertical loads. The flanges of the I-Beam improve flexural forces, while the web section helps resist shearing forces. According to the project’s needs and loading, the design engineer will choose different material standards and types of I-Beam. Rolled I-Beam is also used in machine building, truck building, and other industries.
The welding production process expands the range and efficiency of the I-Beam, making it possible to produce dimensions of any height and width. I-Beams made by welding can be drilled as required, with more customization and better scalability.
We can offer a variety of standard sizes or custom products based on the loading of your project.
