The billet is a product obtained by casting molten steel obtained by a steelmaking furnace. Steel billets can be mainly divided into two types from the manufacturing process: die casting blanks and continuous casting billets, and the die casting process has been basically eliminated.
There are two main types in appearance:
Slab: The ratio of the width to the section is large, and it is mainly used for rolling sheets.
Billet: The section is wide and high, or the difference is not large. It is mainly used for rolling steel and wire.
The steel billet is originally steel. After processing, it can be used as mechanical parts, forgings, processing various steels, steel Q345B channel steel, and wire is the role of steel billets.
Steel billet refers to the semi-finished product used to produce steel, which is generally not directly available for social use. Billet and steel are strictly divided and cannot be determined by the final product of the enterprise, but by the unified standards of the whole society. In general, billets and steels are relatively easy to distinguish, but for some billets, the same specifications and the same use as steel (such as rolled billet) can be used for other industries, whether it is through the steel processing process. Whether it is processed by the finished rolling mill to distinguish.
