As a value-added service to clients, Universal Steel America provides in-house beveling of steel plate and pipe orders upon request. As a result, you’ll receive shipments of steel with edges beveled to your requirements. This can save you time and money over the long haul.
What is Beveling?
Beveling is the process of cutting an angled slope on the edge of metal, usually in preparation for secondary operations or to remove imperfections such as roughness.
Why Is Beveling Advantageous?
The process is ideal for welding applications. It increases the surface area of a weld site, resulting in stronger welds that can handle more stress. Bevels also create depressions where molten flux can flow, making it easier to produce attractive, straight, and uniform welds.
Beveling is a critical but often overlooked aspect of steel product manufacturing. Able to improve performance when fatigue is a concern, it plays an integral role in building everything from simple metal cabinets to complex metal structures.
