Channels made of mild steel are a type of structural steel shape that are commonly used in construction and industrial applications. They are characterized by their “C” shape, with two flat, parallel sides connected by a vertical web. The width of the channel is typically smaller than its height.
Hot-rolled mild steel channels are made by heating a steel billet or slab and passing it through a series of rollers to shape it into the “C” shape. Cold-formed mild steel channels are made by bending a flat piece of steel into the “C” shape using a series of rolls or presses.
Top manufacturers of mild steel are Tata, SAIL, JSW and JSPL.
