What is Angle Iron?

angle iron


Angle Iron, also commonly known as angle steel, is a 90 degree folded flat metal along its length. With equal length of the 2 sides of the angle, we called it “Equal steel Iron”, otherwise, we called it “Unequal Steel Iron”. Its specifications expressed in “Edge width * Edge width × Edge Thickness”. “30×30×3″ for example, it means the edge width of Steel Iron is 30mm, and the thickness is 3 mm.

Applications of Angle Iron

According to the different needs, Angle Iron often used as structural element in building, bridge, Transmission tower, Lifting and transport machinery, or for variety of supports, such as bed frame, Warehouse shelves, etc.

Factors that affect angle iron prices

Size of Angle iron, The type and grades of Steel are normal factors that impact prices of Steel Iron. Other factors like shipping cost, import & export clearance fees should also considered if you want to buy Angle Iron from China steel suppliers.

1.Depends on your projects or intended applications, you need different dimensional size and  thickness of Angle Iron, the Typical size range: 20×20-200×200, 0.3mm-25mm Thick, 6m-13m Long. With more steel is used to create a larger Angle Iron, the price will increase accordingly, Normally, your suppliers will provide you the prices based on the weight of Angle iron.

2.The type of steel used to produce Angle iron can also impact the prices because the cost of the steel types varies greatly. Galvanized angle iron with hot-dip galvanized (zinc) coatings need more labor and process, which will cost much more money. And those cost will be added onto the prices.

3.If you import angle iron from China, you may also consider to adding boron into angle iron. By adding boron, China Steel suppliers can get a 9% to 13% tax rebate for a number of products, which makes huge differences on the price . The difference can up to 100 USD/MT. You can save more cost by importing angle iron from private mills instead of State owned mills.

How Many Do You Know about Angle Iron?

Angle iron is becoming more and more important in building structures and engineering structures to fulfill our daily life. There are so many angle iron suppliers in China and the angle iron prices are competitive. Among them, Steel from China guarantees great quality and reasonable prices.

Angle iron is mainly used to make the frame structure, such as high-voltage transmission tower, steel bridge frame on both sides of the tower, crane on the construction site of the column and arm, workshops columns and beams, some small places like the roadside flowerpot shape shelf, hanging shelf solar air conditioning in windows. Angle of the surface quality requirements in the standard, general requirements may not exist in the use of harmful defects such as delamination, scarring, and cracks. Angle iron geometry of the allowable range in the standard deviation is also provided, generally comprises a curved edge, width edge, other items of the theoretical weight and the predetermined angle of twist can not be significant.

The manufacturing process of angle iron is relatively simple, and according to the production technique angle iron can be divided into two types which are hot-rolled and cold-formed. Hot rolled steel angle is large, while cold-formed is relatively smaller. Standard process is billet through a dedicated many channels repeatedly rolling steel mills gradually rolled into v shape. There is a transition in the inner corner of the arc with reliable mechanical properties. Rather small workshop production is directly rolled sheet or strip with a curve into the inside corner no transition arc, and because the larger the bending stress in a corner, and poor mechanical properties, the most important point is that the material is not guaranteed, this generally can not buy back angle bend, nor welding, drilling up to take the length. Angle steel billets for the production of raw material for carbon square steel billets, hot rolled angles finished forming, hot-rolled or normalizing the status of delivery.
