Press Brake

For sheet metal bending, the press brake is a necessary machine. We have NC type and CNC type press brakes. At the same time, we can customize the punches and dies according to your practical use in sheet metal fabrication.

Shearing Machine

For the straight cutting of steel plate, hydraulic shearing machine is a good choice. It not only has high cutting efficiency, but also requires less investment. We have both swing beam shears and guillotine shears for your selection.

Laser Cutting Machine

In the current metal plate and pipe cutting, laser cutting machine is undoubtedly the best choice. It can not only cut various shapes, but also has small cutting gap, high precision and high cutting efficiency. Today, it is very cost-effective.

I Beam Size And Weight Chart (Definition, Types, Size & Weight)

What is I beam?

I-beam, also known as universal beam, is a long strip of steel with I-shaped section.

I-beam is divided into ordinary I-beam and light I-beam. It is a section steel with I-section shape.

Types of I-beam steel

I-beam is mainly divided into ordinary I-beam, light I-beam and wide flange I-beam.

According to the height ratio of flange to web, it is divided into wide, medium and narrow flange I-beams. The specifications of the first two are #10-60, that is, the corresponding height is 10cm-60cm.

At the same height, the light I-beam has narrow flange, thin web and light weight.

Wide flange I-beam, also known as H-beam, is characterized by two parallel legs and no inclination on the inner side of the legs.

It belongs to economic section steel and is rolled on four high universal mill, so it is also called “universal I-beam”.

Ordinary I-beam and light I-beam have formed national standards.
