Armor 41600 Plate is suitable for high temperatures & protection! Call us today.

MIL–A 46100 steel plate is military spec armor steel. It exhibits high-hardness that is approved for use within the Department of the Army and is available for use by all Departments and Agencies of the Department of Defense. Leeco Steel carries a broad stock of approved material.

Applications vary, but typically armor 41600 steel plate is used to stop high-velocity projectiles (HVPs). This particular grade military spec armor steel plate is especially useful to protect structures or vehicles from sniper fire or any form of weapon that will emit the HVPs. Depending on the threat level, various thicknesses of steel may be required to manufacture the product. The threat level is determined by three factors – the size of the round that the product is meant to defend, the speed at which that round is traveling, and the distance the round will travel before reaching the target.

The steel is quenched and tempered at very high temperatures to sustain a tough surface for the best levels of protection. The surface hardness of this material is between 477 and 534 BHN. While the material can be formed, it is important to note that due to its ductile limitations, it should not be bent improperly.

MIL–A 12560 steel plate is a military spec armor steel plate that is approved by the Material Technology Laboratory, Department of the Army, for use in combat vehicles and for ammunition testing. Thickness ranges from 3/16” through 3” are for use in combat vehicles and ¼” through 12” are for use in proof acceptance testing of armor defeating ammunition.

Typically this grade of armor is used in the protection of landmines or explosive structures. It absorbs shock very well and therefore helps to keep shrapnel to a minimum. Each plate is tested to a Fragment Simulated Projectile standard, which dictates the level of protection for which the plate will ultimately be used.

Largely known as Rolled Homogenous Armor, this variety comes in four different classes. Typical BHN readings on this material are 377 to 415 with other impact and bend tests being performed as well.

MIL–A 46177 steel plate is a military spec armor steel plate that is heat treated and used for its ballistic defeating properties, in a wide variety of armoring applications. From up-armoring kits to a wide variety of other applications, our ballistic steels are designed to meet a client’s needs. Mil-A-46177 is a wrought homogenous armor plate that is typically used in light gauge applications.  It comes in thicknesses from 1/8” (.125) to, but not including, ¼” (.250). It is designed to withstand Mil-Std-662 V 50 Ballistic Test for Armor.

For shock absorption purpose, it is designed to be made (rolled) as homogenous as possible with a minimum Rockwell (HRC) of 39 or Brinell (BHN) of 362.  An average out of flat tolerance of ¾” is allowed from a flat surface; however, a customer may request something more stringent.

This grade is less often requested now but is still used for some liner and/or smaller vehicle applications.  The steel armor covered by this specification is military unique, i.e., the armor is intended for use on combat vehicles, where resistance to armor-piercing types of ammunition and multiple hit capability are required.

Many revisions have been made over the last 10 years to the various types of armor plate, meaning that many types share some of the same characteristics. Therefore, it is important to be sure that the grade requested matches the intended application for use.

Leeco Steel Trading Makes Impression During MINEX Russia 2017

Antonio Rosset, Leeco Steel Trading’s Director, was among the featured speakers at the 13th Mining and Exploration Forum held in Moscow, Russia, October 10 -12, 2017.

Antonio was invited to speak based on his extensive credentials and experience in the international metals markets. His speech focused on how a trading company, such as Leeco Steel Trading, is poised to help distributors, the automotive and off-road truck industries, and many other segments import high-quality steel with competitive prices and an international credit line.

Antonio Rosset speaking on the international metals market.

Captivated Audience

Antonio’s focus was particularly relevant to the audience of 500 due to the Forum’s theme, Mining in Russia. Moving Up with the Buoyant Markets. By spotlighting the development of infrastructure and more efficient solutions to reduce costs and improve efficiency, was a good match for Leeco Steel Trading because that is its main focus.

“The current market has a mixture of rising prices for raw materials, increased political risks, changes in regulation and disruptive technologies,” said Antonio. “Due to volatility in the mining segment, businesses are looking into strategic planning to make smarter decisions. Leeco Steel Trading is in a position to assist in that planning and help companies avoid the same mistakes made during the previous peak pricing period.”

The Mining and Exploration Forum has evolved into one of the most important and authoritative events in Russia and other countries in the Eurasian Economic Union.

Leeco Steel Core Values

No History History http://www.leecosteel.com/history.html Leeco Steels' history began 130 years ago with founder Leopold Cohen who set up shop on Chicago’s west side at 300 Kedzie Avenue South where it remained until 1975.

Leeco Steel History 

Leeco Steel began in 1882 as Leopold Cohen Iron and Metal. The company’s founder, Leopold Cohen, set up shop on Chicago’s west side at 300 Kedzie Avenue South where it remained until 1975. Steady growth and changing market conditions prompted a move to a larger facility at 1600 Kostner Avenue. The business spanned three generations and worked through a century of progress as it continued to strategically place facilities across the United States to better service its customers.

Leeco Steel remained family-owned until 1997 when employees partnered with an investment firm to buy the company. That group of dedicated employees ran a successful ESOP until 2005 when it was purchased by O’Neal Industries.

O’Neal Industries (ONI) is a family of closely related companies, all engaged in the metals industry. Providing products and services that range from steel beams and plates to specialty alloys and complex manufactured components, ONI supplies customers across a variety of industries worldwide. Together, our companies represent the United States’ largest family-owned metals service center. 

Today, Leeco Steel continues to see success and growth. Its legacy is rooted in hard work, employee dedication and industry expertise. We now have eight locations in North America and one in Monterrey, Mexico – and we aren’t done. We are about smart growth that translates to good business that helps our customers.

No Understanding Abrasion Resistant Steel Plate Understanding Abrasion Resistant Steel http://www.leecosteel.com/understanding-abrasion-resistant-steel-plate.html The difference between common steel plate and abrasion resistant steel plate is significant, but the differences between AR400, AR450 and AR500 are more subtle. This article explains how abrasion resistant steel plate is produced, and explores the differences between hardness levels.

AR400 vs. AR450 vs. AR500 – Understanding Abrasion Resistant Steel

Abrasion Resistant Steel Plate

In construction and fabrication, the grade and composition of the steel plate materials used makes a huge impact on the final product. Abrasion resistant steel plate is a common steel plate that boasts a harder, tougher quality that lasts about four times longer than ordinary high-strength structural steel plate.

But what makes it tougher, and how do you know when your project requires abrasion resistant steel?

We get this question a lot, so here’s the run-down on abrasion resistant steel plate, as well as the differences between hardness levels AR400, AR450, AR500 and beyond.

What is Abrasion Resistant Steel Plate?

Abrasion resistant (AR) steel plate is a high-carbon alloy steel plate. This means that AR is harder due to the addition of carbon, and formable and weather resistant due to added alloys.

Carbon added during the formation of the steel plate substantially increases toughness and hardness, but reduces strength. Therefore, AR plate is used in situations where abrasions and wear and tear are the main causes of failure. AR plate is not ideal for structural construction uses, like support beams in bridges or buildings.

Common uses for AR plate include conveyors, buckets, dump liners, construction attachments, grates, body armor and ballistic plates (and as targets at shooting ranges).

How the Quenched & Tempered Process Creates AR Plate

AR material is produced by quenching and tempering forged steel blocks, or ingots. During this process, the grain structure is changed to increase toughness and encourage formability (or, to be less brittle), and results in through-hardening of the material.

Quenching and tempering (Q&T) is a two-part process:

Quenching occurs when steel brought to a high temperature – usually between 1,500-1,650-degrees Fahrenheit – is rapidly cooled with water. This process causes crystal structures to form within the steel, increasing hardness.

Tempering is the process of re-heating quenched steel to a below-critical temperature (around 300-700-degrees Fahrenheit), and then allowing the plate to cool in normal air temperatures.

The reheating the material breaks down the crystal structures formed during the quenching process, while the long cooling allows the crystal structures to refrom – maintaining most of the strength and hardness, but adding to overall ductility.

What’s With the F?

Many times, abrasion resistant steel is labeled "AR400F" and "AR450F" (and sometimes "AR500F"). Today, AR material with or without the "F" are interchangeable, but – historically – material with an "F" simply meant that it was "formable" and could be bent to a certain degree without cracking.

When mills produced both formable and non-formable steel plate, formable was slightly more expensive. However, diminished demand and more competitive pricing has resulted in the production of formable-only AR steel.

Tempering Steel Plate

What is Through-Hardening?

AR steel is often described as being through-hardened, but what does that really mean?

When grain structure changes during the initial heating stage of Q&T, the composition of the entire plate changes. This is referred to as through-hardening. Through-hardening differs from "case-hardening," also referred to as "surface-hardening," which only hardens the surface while allowing the metal deeper underneath to remain soft. In this case, the composition, or hardening, of the plate only changes at the surface level.

AR400 versus AR450 versus AR500+

Before we dive into the difference between these common types of AR steel, it is important to clarify that AR steels are not governed by a specific chemistry, but a level of hardness.

Different mills may have different “recipes” for AR steel, but produced material is administered a hardness test – known as the Brinell Test – to determine the category in which it falls.

The technical difference between AR400, AR450 and AR500 is the Brinell Hardness Number (BHN), which indicates the material’s level of hardness:

AR400: 360-440 BHN Typically
AR450: 430-480 BHN Typically
AR500: 460-544 BHN Typically
AR600: 570-625 BHN Typically (less common, but available)

So, what does this mean in terms of usability? How do you know which level of hardness your project needs?

Projects that require AR materials are typically those that need a specific balance between hardness and brittleness. As you increase hardness, you also increase brittleness, making the material difficult to form, shape and weld. For some projects, hardness is critical, so brittleness is sacrificed. But in other cases, the material must be formed and handled, so the level of hardness must be reduced.

As a general rule, AR400 and AR450 are the “sweet spots” in terms of good hardness combined with good formability. For projects that truly beat up the material, AR500 and AR600 will last longer and need to be replaced less frequently.

Ultimately, you and your team will be the best judge of which material your project needs. Cost, of course, comes into play, as sometimes it’s worth having a formable material that needs to be replaced more often.

No State of the industry from Illinois’s perspective http://www.leecosteel.com/article-three.html AWEA’s Chicago Leadership Forum: State of the industry from Illinois’s perspective

By 

Last year was a banner year for the wind industry with some 12,000 new MW installed. You might guess the top three states for new installations: Texas, California, and Iowa. But can you guess the fourth?  It was Illinois.

Acciona ImageGen

Acciona turbines like this one work at the EcoGrove wind park in Illinois.

The state is also home to a couple of turbine OEMs – Nordex and Acciona – gearbox manufacturer Winergy, tower manufacturer Broadwind, along with many other second and third-tier manufacturers. So to put Illinois in the spotlight, AWEA recently organized the AWEA Chicago Wind Energy Leadership Forum to let several of its wind-industry executives comment on the course of the industry and their best guess where it might be going this year and next.

Panelists included:

The 90 minute discussion ranged from needed legislation, the PTC and the fiscal cliff, improving capacity factors, financing ideas, the compatibility of wind and natural gas, and more. Here are a few of the discussion highlights.

Leeco Steel’s John Purcell: “We made quite a transition from the end of 2012 in which the last five months were almost idle production. We were blessed with the extension of the PTC and that let us ramp up into 2013. Customers are getting more active through this year and we expect that next year as well.”

J.P. Morgan’s John Eber: “Wind delivers clean energy and at a constant fixed price over 20 years. Few other energy sources can do that, so that it provides stability to the market. And that is a big difference compared to where we were in 2004.”

Winergy Drive System’s Terry Royer: “From the manufacturing and supplier’s perspective, we’re also planning on growing into 2014. But questions will arise in the summer months when we start looking out 12 to 18 months more, when the impact of the extension begins wearing off. What happens then? What will be the next discussion regarding legislation that continues to support the industry? Of course, that depends on what legislators do, which might include comprehensive tax reform. Still we look for a healthy 2014, even as we work with legislators to better clarify what will come.”

Bloomberg’s Chris Martin: “The definition of ‘begin construction’ from the PTC is broad enough.

“Cape wind says it received some financing support and would be the first offshore wind if it gets built, but they have to show they started construction this year. Do you see projects forming that could last more than a couple years, to keep the industry moving?”

Winergy’s Terry Royer: “Chris, this is why we are anxious to hear from the Treasury Dept. It is hard to define ‘begin construction’ now. But to a previous question, I think manufacturers are resilient, and financial guys are creative, so we are waiting on legislators. We are just waiting for solid policy and certainty. We think we have a good product and the message is this: Costs have come down, turbines are more reliable than ever, and manufacturing is waiting to do its job again. So when we hear from the Treasury Dept. as to what they say defines the term from the PTC. We’ll also see if there is another cliff in 2014.”

Invenergy’s Jim Murphy: “For onshore wind, the development construction cycle is well known. Typically it’s 6 to 12 months, so I don’t expect to see projects going on for years as an offshore project might. Hopefully, as John was saying, it’s a non-issue, by the time we get to a point where we have certainty in the system.”

Leeco Steel’s John Purcell: “As long as I have known wind energy, it has been asking for more stability, and there have been a variety of different legislative proposals for that. Certainly the RPS provides additional stability and that has been discussed at the national level, but there are more subtle policies in the tax code. One that is getting attention is the Master Limited Partnership which would be an investment vehicle. If put into law, it would not need extending every other year. It’s there for oil and gas, and other energy sectors. So one financing option is to write renewable energy into that law along with gas and oil. That would be helpful, but that takes an act of Congress.  Those three small words are such a hurdle.”

Bloomberg’s Chris Martin: “What tone do you expect from the upcoming AWEA WINDPOWER conference and what will be the important topics for the industry?”

Leeco’s John Purcell: “Since the president has made renewable energy a large part of his administration, and without the hazard of reelection, he has nothing to lose from his actions. So I hope we’ll hear in May that renewable energy remains on the forefront and something that will be a bigger negotiated package for future energy policy. We are here in the President’s hometown, and a state supportive of development and manufacturing.

We make the steel for the towers and turbines, so policy will be a huge jobs creator and positive impact on Illinois and the states around us. A lot of manufacturing that was created has gone away. But I know about capital markets and manufacturing, and if there is certainty in the market, money will be borrowed, lent, and put to good use. That is what I’m hopeful for.”

AWEA’s Rob Gramlich: “One theme at this year’s conference in May is that we are coming off a year for an industry that relies on Washington policy. Things got pretty nasty last year. There was partisan gridlock and partisan attacks. Although some things got accomplished, the attacks on clean energy got pretty nasty.

“Despite that, the wind industry emerged from all that. We look around now and realize that if something does not kill us, it makes us stronger. The wind industry stayed united through all that turmoil, all our allies stood proudly with us, and actually, we feel good about the campaign for the PTC extension. We survived the worst, and some of the gridlock is subsiding. We could have an option teed up with bipartisan support. It is hard to say what legislation opportunities are out there, but we will be ready to keep things moving.”

Bloomberg’s Chris Martin: “We talk about the cost of wind power coming down, and fortunately, the development of shale gas has made natural gas more competitive. That has changed the economics of energy. How does it affect the wind industry?”

Invenergy’s Jim Murphy:  “Our costs have been coming down and we have seen great improvement in turbine efficiency. Here’s an example. Our first wind project began development in 2003 but did not finish because the net capacity factor would have been about 20%, not good enough. That would not have been an economic success for the company. Now fast-forward to 2012. We put several farms in Illinois and completed construction on others with net capacity factors over 40%. That is a huge move, a huge increase in energy production, of course with incremental costs and more turbines. So the economics have improved. The net capacity factor is a critical driver and a metric that is important when comparing wind with other sources of generation. You often hear that wind is intermittent and does not have a high capacity factor. And yet, we are moving to higher capacity factors. Projects now in other parts of the Midwest are approaching or exceeding 50%.”

J.P. Morgan’s John Eber: “I can confirm that. We have clients all over the country, some 90 different wind farms. In the last two years, capacity factors are increasing all over the country. Equipment manufacturers have come up with improved designs, taller towers, longer blades, and improved electronics. So the same sites a few years ago would produce the lower factors are now much higher, and that has allowed reducing the cost of power and competing with natural gas.

“In fact, I see wind and natural gas as compatible. They need each other. Natural gas is important to the country but it is not nearly as clean as wind. And wind needs a base load power available when it is not blowing. So there is a compatible mix between the two, and a few utilities show that.

“Remember, you can fix in the cost of wind for 20 years. You can’t do that with natural gas. It’s too volatile even though the price is attractive now.”

(Editor’s note: Bloomberg.com/energy reports that as of March 29, Nymex natural gas carries a price of $4.07/million BTUs, and that is up from about $3.50 a couple months ago and about $2.50 a year ago.)

No Blasting, Burning, Grinding & Drilling Common Ways Steel Plate is Processed http://www.leecosteel.com/steel-plate-processing.html This article will review the most common types of processes and highlight the differences between them. Some applications of steel plate require additional finishing and processing to remove mill scale (a flaky surface that forms as a result of steel manufacturing), cut to a specific size or thickness and more. This article will review the most common types of processes and highlight the differences between them.

From skyscrapers to bridges to stadiums and roads, steel is one of the most widely used materials in the world. Steel plate – or steel that is greater than 3/16-inches thick – is used in a variety of applications, including infrastructure construction, construction equipment, bridges, buildings parts fabrication, wind turbines and armored vehicle production.

This article will review the most common types of processes and highlight the differences between them.

#1: Removing Mill Scale with Shot Blasting

Steel plate often has a thin layer of mill scale, which occurs during the manufacturing process. In most applications, the presence of mill scale is acceptable, as it does not compromise the strength or integrity of the material. However, in applications that require a surface to be painted – such as use on armored vehicles – mill scale must be removed (otherwise the paint will simply flake off over time).

Shot blasting – also referred to as abrasive blasting – is a common method used to clean and polish steel plate. The technique uses steel shot about the size of a grain of sand and blasts that abrasive at the material surface. The abrasive combined with its force effectively removes surface residue but does not damage the steel plate.

Shot Blasting Steel Plate

Steel plate is loaded and preparing to enter a Wheelabrator shot blaster

Shot blasting differs from its cousin, sand blasting, in that sand blasting combines the abrasive material with compressed air, which flows through a blasting nozzle. Shot blasting, on the other hand, uses a throwing wheel that rapidly spins and propels blasting material inside a contained area. This greatly reduces silicon dust and general environmental pollution.

The cost of shot blasting depends on a lot of factors, but typically ranges from $80-$160 per hour. There are sometimes minimum plate size requirements, so it is important to discuss your material needs with an experienced steel plate supplier or processing vendor.

#2: Cutting to Size on the Burn Table

Steel material is popular in construction applications due to its strength in relation to weight and ductility as compared to other high-strength materials.

Just because it is more ductile (or formable) than other construction materials, doesn’t mean it’s easy to cut, drill and weld.

For this reason, processing vendors offer cutting services, the most popular being flame cutting. Flame cutting uses a heat source to cut into hard, thick steel plate material on a large table.

Flame Cutting Steel Plate

There are several methods of flame cutting, including:

Oxy Fuel Cutting: This process uses a flame that heats the material surface, followed by a blast of oxygen along the cut line. Oxygen greatly increases the temperature of the flame, effectively “cutting” (or burning away) the material. Oxy fuel cutting is less precise and slower than other cutting methods, however it can cut much thicker material.

Plasma Fuel Cutting: Plasma cutting uses a channel of compressed, superheated, electrically ionized gas to cut into steel and metal materials. Plasma cutting is more precise and faster than oxy fuel, and is limited by the thickness it can accurately cut.

Plasma Flame Cut Steel Tool

Steel plate pieces machined by plasma cutter.

Two other methods include laser cutting – which uses an electric current and gas to cut into the material – there is also water jet cutting – which uses water and abrasives to cut into the material. These methods are more precise than oxy or plasma fuel cutting, but much more expensive.

#3: Cutting to Size with Sharp Objects

There are two common ways to cut thinner steel plate that do not require a burning method. Typically, these methods are less expensive.

Saw cutting: For thinner plates, a simple steel-blade saw can quickly and cheaply cut steel material. This method is often used to cut steel plate into bars.

Shearing: This method is sometimes referred to as die cutting, as it involves the use of a press with die cutting plates to cut steel. The process is similar in concept to using large, heavy scissors. Like saw cutting, shearing can typically done on plate up to 1-inch thick, and is typically used to cut a plate into bars.

#4: Reducing the Thickness of Plate via Blanchard Grinding

While burning and cutting methods are effective at changing the dimensions of a steel plate, reducing thickness requires a different technique known as rotary surface grinding or Blanchard grinding.

Blanchard grinding uses a magnetic circular table that firmly secures the steel plate. The circular table rotates under a grinding spindle, resulting in a uniform grind across the material surface.

#5: Drilling

For materials that require precise drilled holes, steel plate processors have software-based drill presses that can handle drilling through hard, thick material, and can do so in a highly-precise manner.

Some processors have 3-in-1 or 2-in-1 machines that both cut and drill. These machines are precise and efficient, making them good options for customers with multiple processing needs.

#6: Bending via a Press Brake

Metal fabricators in particular often need steel plate formed to a certain angle. There are multiple methods forming and a press brake is almost exclusively used when bending steel plate.

Press brake bending – also referred to as coining – uses a punch and die to form flat plate into a specified angle. This method is highly accurate and precise, making it an ideal option for fabricators.

#7: Plate Rolling

Construction applications – such as producers of towers – require steel plate to be bent and rolled into a circular or tapered round shapes using a plate roll machine. These machines feed steel plate (and other metal materials) into three or four rollers, which curve the material to a specific angle.

Press brakes can also be used to roll steel, but plate rolls are more effective at rolling 360-degree cylinders as well as larger, thicker plate.

No The Rock Island Clean Line The Rock Island Clean Line http://www.leecosteel.com/the-rock-island-clean-line.html The Rock Island Clean Line is a 500-mile overhead high voltage direct current transmission line...

The Rock Island Clean Line is a 500-mile overhead high voltage direct current transmission line that will deliver 3,500 megawatts from northwest Iowa and the surrounding region to communities in Illinois and other states to the east, areas that have a strong demand for clean, reliable energy. The name of the project comes from the Rock Island Railroad, which stretches across the entire state of Iowa, through the city of Rock Island and into Illinois.

This exciting and vital project is being met with resistance from a variety of angles. Most of that resistance is rooted in misinformation about the industry as a whole. Bottom line: wind energy is clean, endless and a resource for both power and economic impact.

The Rock Island Clean Line is estimated to provide more than 5,000 construction jobs and more than 500 permanent jobs to maintain and operate the wind farms and the transmission line. In addition to these jobs, the Rock Island Clean Line will spur increased employment opportunities in many sectors including manufacturing of turbines, towers and cable, as well as hospitality and education.

As a member of the board of directors for the American Wind Energy Association, and supplier of product that serves the wind industry itself, I felt it was imperative that I shared my views on the importance of the Rock Island Clean line. I wrote an OpEd piece that was distribute to a variety of local newspapers -- here's that letter.
Leeco Steel has been an active supplier and supporter to the wind energy industry for more than six years. As the main supplier of plate steel to the wind industry in North America, we understand that the industry itself is quite young in the United States. We have seen it evolve first hand into an integral component of a national energy policy. Lecco’s Steel’s involvement with wind energy has not been on the perimeter. We have rolled up our sleeves and educated ourselves on best practices, immersed ourselves in our customers business and took action on national policy as a board member of the American Wind Energy Association.

Wind energy has already proven a reliable energy source by providing significant amounts of electricity across major parts of the U.S. Iowa produces more than 20 percent of its electricity from wind, and wind energy recently provided more than 25 percent of the electricity being used across 11 Midwest states. A 2012 report from Synapse Energy Economics found that wind energy can save the average Midwestern household up to $200 per year.
Reports from Minnesota show that in 2011, wind power contributed 12.7 percent of its electricity generation, supported up to 3,000 jobs and contributed $8 million in land-lease payments. And that is just one state.

Data and analysis from utilities, the government and independent utility system operators confirm that adding wind energy displaces large quantities of fossil fuel use and carbon dioxide pollution. That’s because when the wind is blowing, the electricity generated displaces the output of the most expensive, least efficient power plants. Utility operators accommodate gradual and predictable changes in wind output with the same tools they use to deal with fluctuations in electricity demand as well as sudden outages of large fossil and nuclear power plants, which are far more costly to deal with.

Leeco Steel understands that wind power is a vital component of a national energy policy and we know the Rock Island Clean Line is a smart idea for our energy independence.

Yes John Purcell, VP:Energy, thanks Sen. Mark Kirk for supporting the extension of the PTC
in a letter to the editor of the Naperville Sun Wind Power Deserves Support http://www.leecosteel.com/letter-to-the-editor.html

John Purcell, VP, wrote this letter to the editor of Naperville Sun thanking Illinois Senator Kirk for joining a bipartisan coalition calling for the immediate extension of the PTC.

Investing in wind power has proven to be a good deal for Illinois. Wind has attracted over $7.2 billion in capital investment to the state and created thousands of well-paying jobs.

That’s a big reason why I want to thank Illinois Republican Sen. Mark Kirk for supporting policy that will help keep the wind power success story going not just in Illinois, but all across the United States.

Recently, Sen. Kirk joined a bipartisan coalition of 144 Senate and House members calling for an immediate extension of the Production Tax Credit and Investment Tax Credit. These tax credits have helped American wind power attract up to $25 billion a year in private investment into our national economy and foster economic development in all 50 states. Illinois alone has created nearly 7,000 jobs at 36 facilities around the state due to growing wind power.

Leeco Steel started as a scrap shop in south Chicago more than 130 years ago and is now North America’s main supplier of the plate steel used to construct modern wind turbines. Our staff of more than 100 employees has witnessed the positive impact wind energy has had on our business, and manufacturing as a whole. Yet wind lacks the support of a stable national energy policy that will further encourage investment and in turn, create jobs.

By calling for an extension of both the PTC and the ITC, Kirk is standing up for Illinois workers and for an American-made industry that benefits our economy.

As a member of our accounting department, I have very close relationship with what everyone in our company is concerned about – the numbers. 

I have always been a numbers person. They tell me everything I need to know about the health of our company, Leeco Steel, which supplies plate steel to companies all over North America. Everyone on the accounting team is the same way—that’s why we do what we do. 

Processes are part of the daily rhythm of the accounting department. It’s essential we have a steady, and predicable, approach to the tasks we must accomplish for Leeco Steel’s fiscal stability. 

Predictability and routine can often breed complacency. But, this isn’t a place that encourages complacency. We evaluate our company’s process health frequently; asking the questions “How can we do things better for our customers? For our company? How can we use the technology we have to make things better for both of us?”  

We determined it was time to streamline our accounting and billing practices by eliminating one of its biggest components: paper.  Starting spring of 2014, Leeco Steel is hoping to get as many of our customers on e-statements as possible. 

We reviewed the data and it was clear that savings could be seen in a variety of ways by using e-statements:

Historia de Leeco Steel

Leeco Steel comenzó en 1882 como Leopold Cohen Iron and Metal. El fundador de la compañía, Leopold Cohen, se estableció en el lado oeste de Chicago en la 300 Kedzie Avenue South donde se quedó hasta 1975. Crecimiento contínuo y condiciones de merecado cambiantes impulsaron una mudanza a una instalación más grande en la 1600 Kostner Avenue. El negocio abarcó tres generaciones y trabajó a lo largo de un siglo de progreso a medida en que continuaba ubicando estratégicamente instalaciones a lo largo y ancho de los Estados Unidos con el fin de servirle mejor a sus clientes.

Leeco Steel continuó estando en las manos de la familia hasta 1997 cuando empleados se hicieron socios con una firma de inversiones para comprar la compañía. Ese grupo de empleados dedicados manejaban un ESOP exitoso hasta el 2007 cuando fue comprado por O’Neal Industries.

Con ventas anuales de aproximadamente 25 mil millones $2.5 billion en el 2012, Industrias O’Neal es el centro de servicio familiar de metals más grande de la nación. La compañía consiste de 13 marcas líderes trabajando cooperativamente para brindar valor agregado a clientes en diversos mercados en todo el mundo.

No La Línea Limpia de Rock Island La Línea Limpia de Rock Island http://www.leecosteel.com/the-rock-island-clean-line.html The Rock Island Clean Line is a 500-mile overhead high voltage direct current transmission line...

La Línea Limpia de Rock Island es un línea aérea de transmisión de corriente de alto voltaje de 500 millas que entregará 3,500 megawatts desde el noroeste de Iowa y la región circundante hasta comunidades en Illinois y otros estados al este, áreas que tienen una fuerte demanda para energía limpia y fiable. El nombre del proyecto viene del Ferrocarril Rock Island, el cual cruza todo el estado de Iowa, a travéz de la ciudad de Rock Island y hasta Illinois.

Este emocionnte y vital proyecto se ha estado enfrentando con resistencia desde varios ángulos. La mayoría de esa resistencia viene de información errónea acerca de la industria como un todo. La cuestión principal: la energía eólica es limpia, sin fin y un recurso de impacto tanto energético como económico.

Se calcula que la Línea Limpia de Rock Island proverá más de 5,000 trabajos de construcción y más de 500 trabajos permanentes para mantener y operar las granjas eólicas y la línea de transmisión. Además de estos trabajos, la Línea Limpia de Rock Island impulsará un incremento de oportunidades de empleo en muchos sectores incluyendo la manufactura de turbinas, torres y cable, además de hospitalidad y educación.

Como miembro de la junta directiva de la Asociación Americana de Energía Eólica, y suministrador de productos que le sirven a la misma industria eólica, sentí que era imperativo compartir mis opiniones sobre la importancia de la Línea Limpia de Rock Island. Escribí un artículo de OpEd que fue distribuido a una variedad de periódicos locales – aquí está la carta.
Leeco Steel ha sido un suministrados activo y apoyador de la industria de energía eólica por más de seis añoos. Como el suministrador principal de lámina de acero en la industria eólica en Norte América, entendemos que la industria en sí es muy reciente en los Estadoos Unidos. La hemos visto evolucionar en primer plano hasta ser un componente integral de una política energética nacional. El involucramiento de Leeco Steel con la industria eólica no ha sido en el perímetro. Nos hemos subido las mangas y nos hemos educado en cuanto a las mejores prácticas, nos hemos sumergido en los negocios de nuestros clientes y tomamos acción en políticas nacionales como miembro de la junta de la Asociación Americana de Energía Eólica.

La energía eólica ya ha sido comprobada ser una fuente fiable de energía al brindar cantidades significativas de electricidad a lo largo de grandes partes de los Estados Unidos. Iowa produce más de 20% de su electricidad del viento, y la energía eólica recientemente proporcionó más de 25 porciento de la electricidad siendo utilizada en 11 estadosd e medio-oeste. Un reporte del 2012 de Synapse Energy Economics encontró que la energía eólica le puede ahorrar el núcleo familiar promedio del medio-oeste hasta $200 por año.
Reportes desde Minnesota demuestran que en el 2011, la energía eólica contribuyó 12.7 porciento de su generación de electricidad, apoyó hasta 3,000 empleos y contribuyó $8 millones en pagos de alquiler de propiedad land-lease payments. Y eso es sólo un estado.

Datos y análisis de servicios públicos, el gobierno y operadores de sistemas independientes de servicios públicos confirman que agregando la energía eólica desplaza/destituye grandes cantidades de uso de combustible fósil y la contaminación por dióxido de carbono. Eso es porque cuando sopla el viento, la electricidad generada desplaza la producción de las plantas de energía más caras y menos eficientes. Los operadores de servicios públicos acomodan cambios graduales y predecibles en la producción eólica con las mismas herramientas que utilizan para tratar con las fuctuaciones en la demanda eléctrica además de cortes repentinos de grandes plantas nucleares y fósiles, los cuales son mucho más costosos de lidear con ellos.

Leeco Steel entiende que la energía eólica es un componente vital de una política energética nacional y sabemos que la Línea Límpia Rock Island es una idea inteligente para nuestra independencia energética.

Yes Estado de la industria desde la perspectiva de Illinois http://www.leecosteel.com/article-three.html AWEA’s Chicago Leadership Forum: State of the industry from Illinois’s perspective

By

El año pasado fue un año sobresaliente para la industria eólica con unas 12,000 nuevas MW instaladas. Se podrá imaginar los tres estados principales para nuevas instalaciones: Texas, California, y Iowa. ¿Pero se puede imaginar el cuarto? Fue Illinois.

Acciona ImageGen

Turbinas acciona turbines como esta trabajan en el parque eólico Grove en Illinois.

El estado también es hogar a unas turbinas OEMs – Nordex y Acciona – manufacturador de engranaje Winergy, manufacturador de torre Broadwind, en conjunto con muchos otros manufacturadores de segundo y tercer nivel. Con el fin de poner a Illinois en la mira, la AWEA recientmente organizó el Forum AWEA de Liderazgo de Energía Eólica de Chicago para que varios de los ejecutuvos de su industria eólica comentaran sobre el curso de la industria y su mejor cálculo en cuanto a dónde se dirige este año y el siguiente.

Los panelistas incluyeron:

La discusión de 90 minutos tocó desde la legislación necesaria, la PTC y el precipicio fiscal, mejorando los factores de capacidad, ideas de financiamiento, la compatabilidad del viento y el gas natural, y mucho más. Aquí hay algunos de los puntos destacados de la discusión.

John Purcell, de Leeco Steel: “Hicimos una transición bastante notable desde finales del 2012, en el que los últimos cinco meses fueron casi de produción inactiva idle production. Fuimos bendecidos con la extención de la PTC y eso nos permitió entrarle con ganas (ramp up) al 2013. Los clientes se están poniendo más activos a lo largo de este año y tenemos previsto lo mismo para el siguiente año también.”

John Eber, de J.P. Morgan: “El viento brinda energía limpia y en un constante costo fijo por más de 20 años. Pocas otras fuentes de energía pueden hacer eso, entonces eso brinda estabilidad al mercado.Y eso es unagran diferencia en comparación con donde estábamos en el 2004.”

Terry Royer, de Winergy Drive System: “Desde la perspectiva del manufacturador y del suministrador, también tenemos planeado crecer en el 2014. Pero las preguntas comenzarán a surgir en los meses de verano cuando comenzamos viendo al futuro, de 12 a 18 meses más, cuando el impacto de la expansión comienza a desgastarse. ¿Qué pasará en ese entonces? ¿Cuál será la siguiente discusión acerca de la legislación que continúa apoyando a la industria? Por supuesto, eso depende de lo que hagan los legisladores, que puede incluir una amplia reforma fiscal. De igual manera buscamos un 2014 saludable, aún a medida en que trabajamos con los legisladores para aclarar mejor el porvenir.”

Chris Martin, de Bloomberg : “La definición de ‘comience la construcción’ de la PTC es suficientemente amplia.

“Cape wind dice que recibió un apoyo financiero y sería la primera energía eólea mar adentro si se construye, pero deben mostrar que comenzaron con la construcción este año. ¿Usted ve proyectos que se están formando que podrían durar más que un par de años, para mantener a la industria en movimiento?”

Terry Royer, de Winergy: “Chris, ésto es el porqué estamos tan ansiosos para tener noticia del Departamento de Tesorería. Es difícil de definir ahora ‘comience la construcción’. Pero a una pregunta previa, yo creo que los manufacturadores son resilientes/perseverantes, y los chicos financieros son creativos, así que estamos esperando a los legisladores. Sólo estamos esperando una póliza sólida y certeza. Pensamos que tenemos un buen producto y el mensaje es este: los costos han bajado ,las turbinas son más fiables que nunca, y la manufacturación está esperando a hacer su trabajo otra vez. Entonces cuando sepamos del Departamento de Tesorería en cuanto a lo que ellos digan define los términos del PTC. También veremos si hay otro acantilado en el 2014.”

Jim Murphy, de Invenergy: “Para viento tierra adentro, el ciclo de construcción es bien conocido. Típicamente es de 6 a 12 meses, así que no espero ver proyectos tardando años como podría un proyecto mar adentro. Ojalá, como estaba diciendo John, no es un asunto non-issue, para cuando lleguemos a un punto cuando tenemos certeza en el sistema. John was saying, it’s a, by the time we get to a point where we have certainty in the system.”

John Purcell, de Leeco Steel: “En todo el tiempo que he conocido la energía eólica, ha estado pidiendo mayor establidad, y han habido una variedad de propuestas legislativas para eso. Ciertamente la RPS brinda estabilidad adicional y eso se ha discutido a nivel nacional, pero hay pólizas más sutíles en el código de impuestos. Una que está recibiendo atención es la Master Limited Partnership, el cual sería un vehículo de inversiones investment vehicle. Si se hace ley, no necesitaría una extensión cada año por medio. Está allí para el petróleo y el gas, y otros sectores de energía. Entonces una opción financiera es incluir la energía renovable en esa ley al lado del petróleo y el gas. Eso sería de ayuda, pero eso necesita un acto del Congreso. Esas tres palabras pequeñas son un gran obstáculo.”

Chris Martin, de Bloomberg: “¿Cual tono espera usted de la próxima coonferencia de AWEA WINDPOWER y cuales serán lostemas importantes para la industria?”

John Purcell, de Leeco: “Ya que el Presidente ha hecho de la energía renovable una gran parte de su administración, y sin el riesgo de la reelección, él no tiene nada que perder por sus acciones. Entonces espero que escucharemos en mayo que la energía renovable se mantiene en un primer plano y algo que será un paquete negociado más grande para una futura póliza de energía. Estamos aquí en la ciudad natal del Presidente, y un estado que apoya el desarrollo y la manufacturación.

Hacemos el acero para las torres y las turbinas, así que la póliza será un gran creador de empleos e imacto positivo en Illinois y los estados a nuestro alrededor. Mucha de la manufacturación que fue creada se ha ido. Pero yo conozco los mercados capitales y la manufacturación, y si hay certeza en el mercado, el dinero será tomado prestado, se hubiera prestado y puesto a un buen uso. Eso es en lo que yo tengo fe.”

Rob Gramlich, de AWEA: “Un tema en la conferencia de este año en mayo es que estamos saliendo de un año para una industria que depende de la póliza de Washington. Las cosas se pusieron bastante feas el año pasado. Hubo paralización partidaria y ataques partidarios. Aunque se lograron algunas cosas, los ataques a la energía limpia se pusieron bastante feas.

“A pesar de ello, la industria eólica salió de todo eso. Volvemos a ver ahora y nos damos cuenta de que si algo no nos mata, nos fortallece. La industria eólica permaneció unida a lo largo de todo ese caos, y todos nuestros aleados permanecieron orgullosamente a nuestro lado, y en realidad, nos sentimos bien con la campaña para la extención de la PTC. Sobrevivimos a lo peor, y parte de la paralización se está disminuyendo. Puede que tengamos una opción lista con apoyo bipartidario. Es difícil decir cuales oportunidades legislativas están allí, pero estaremos listos para mantener las cosas en movimiento.”

Chris Martin, de Bloomberg: “Hablamos de la disminución del costo de la energía, y afortunadamente, el desarrollo del gas de esquisto ha hechio más competiitivo el gas natural. Eso ha cambiado la economía de la energía. ¿Cómo afecta esto a la industria eólica?”

Jim Murphy, de Invenergy: “Nuestros costos se han estado disminuyendo y hemos visto una gran mejoría en la eficiencia de las turbinas. Aquí hay un ejemplo. Nuestro primer proyecto eólico comenzó con el desarrollo en el 2003 pero no terminó porque el factor de capacidad neto hubiera sido como un 20%, lo cual no es suficiente. Eso no hubiera sido un logro económico para la compañía. Ahora adelantese hasta el 2012. Pusimos varias granjas en Illinois completamos construcción en variios otros con un factor de capacidad neta de más de 40%. Esto es un gran movimiento, un gran incremento en la producción energética, por supuesto con costos adicionales y más turbinas. Así que las economías han mejorado. El factor de capacidad neto es un impulsor crítico y una métrica que es importante cuando se compara al viento con otras fuentes de generación. A menudo se escucha que el viento es intermitente y que no tiene un alto factor de capacidad. Sin embargo, estamos moviendo hacia mayores factores de capacidad. Proyectos ehora en otras partes de medio-oeste se están aproximándose o excediendo el 50%.”

John Eber, de J.P. Morgan: “Yo puedo confirmar eso. Tenemos clientes en todo el país, unas 90 diferentes granjas eólicas. En los últimos dos años, los factores de capacidad están incrementando en todo el país. Manufacturadores de equipo han llegado con diseños mejorados, torres más altas, hélices más largas, y electrónica mejorada. Así que los mismos sitios que hace un par de años producían los factores menores, ahora son mucho mayores, y eso ha permitido reducir el costo de la energía y competir con el gas natural.

“De hecho, yo veo al viento y al gas natural como compatibles. Ellos se necesitan mútuamente. El gas natural es importante para el país pero no es tan limpio como el viento. Y el viento necesita de una energía de carga base base load power cuando no está soplando. Así que hay una mezcla comppatible entre los dos, y unas cuantas utilidades demuestran eso.

“Recuerda, puedes fijar fix in el costo del viento por 20 años. No puedes hacer eso con el gas natural. Es demasiado volátil aunque es precio es atractivo ahorita.”

(Nota del Editor: Bloomberg.com/energy reporta que a partir del 29 dde marzo, el gas natural de Nymex lleva un precio de $4.07/million BTU, y eso es en aumento de unos $3.50 hace unos cuantos meses y como unos $2.50 hace un año.)

Yes John Purcell, VP:Energy, thanks Sen. Mark Kirk for supporting the extension of the PTC
in a letter to the editor of the Naperville Sun Wind Power Deserves Support http://www.leecosteel.com/letter-to-the-editor.html

John Purcell, VP, wrote this letter to the editor of Naperville Sun thanking Illinois Senator Kirk for joining a bipartisan coalition calling for the immediate extension of the PTC.

Investing in wind power has proven to be a good deal for Illinois. Wind has attracted over $7.2 billion in capital investment to the state and created thousands of well-paying jobs.

That’s a big reason why I want to thank Illinois Republican Sen. Mark Kirk for supporting policy that will help keep the wind power success story going not just in Illinois, but all across the United States.

Recently, Sen. Kirk joined a bipartisan coalition of 144 Senate and House members calling for an immediate extension of the Production Tax Credit and Investment Tax Credit. These tax credits have helped American wind power attract up to $25 billion a year in private investment into our national economy and foster economic development in all 50 states. Illinois alone has created nearly 7,000 jobs at 36 facilities around the state due to growing wind power.

Leeco Steel started as a scrap shop in south Chicago more than 130 years ago and is now North America’s main supplier of the plate steel used to construct modern wind turbines. Our staff of more than 100 employees has witnessed the positive impact wind energy has had on our business, and manufacturing as a whole. Yet wind lacks the support of a stable national energy policy that will further encourage investment and in turn, create jobs.

By calling for an extension of both the PTC and the ITC, Kirk is standing up for Illinois workers and for an American-made industry that benefits our economy.

John Purcell

Yes By the Numbers By the Numbers http://www.leecosteel.com/by-the-numbers.html I have always been a numbers person. They tell me everything I need to know about the health of our company, Leeco Steel, which supplies plate steel to companies all over North America...

As a member of our accounting department, I have very close relationship with what everyone in our company is concerned about – the numbers. 

I have always been a numbers person. They tell me everything I need to know about the health of our company, Leeco Steel, which supplies plate steel to companies all over North America. Everyone on the accounting team is the same way—that’s why we do what we do. 

Processes are part of the daily rhythm of the accounting department. It’s essential we have a steady, and predicable, approach to the tasks we must accomplish for Leeco Steel’s fiscal stability. 

Predictability and routine can often breed complacency. But, this isn’t a place that encourages complacency. We evaluate our company’s process health frequently; asking the questions “How can we do things better for our customers? For our company? How can we use the technology we have to make things better for both of us?”  

We determined it was time to streamline our accounting and billing practices by eliminating one of its biggest components: paper.  Starting spring of 2014, Leeco Steel is hoping to get as many of our customers on e-statements as possible. 

We reviewed the data and it was clear that savings could be seen in a variety of ways by using e-statements:

 Time.

Money

We do have some customers that want the paper correspondence and we will happily accommodate. But the transition from the habit of paper to the ease of e-statements translates into savings for both Leeco Steel and its customers.

Yes Why Houston? Manager of Houston facility discusses Leeco Steel Houston http://www.leecosteel.com/why-houston.html As summer gets into full swing, it’s becoming clear why the next step in Leeco's growth plan was to expand our Texas reach to Houston. There’s a lot happening here!

Leeco Steel, Houston, officially opened in February.  As summer gets into full swing, it’s becoming crystal clear why the next logical step in Leeco’s growth plan was to expand our Texas reach to Houston. There’s a lot happening here.

We have seen first hand how the south is a robust market for steel plate. Leeco Steel set up shop in Fort Worth early in 2009 with a hardworking, knowledgeable team backed by an impressive supply of steel plate ready to ship. During these past five years, our Texas team has become familiarized in the market tendencies and intricacies of the South, one of the largest steel plate consumption markets in North America.

Leeco Steel doesn’t want to add locations for the sake of adding locations. The decision to add a facility in a market must make sense – and Houston was a no-brainer. Our customer base was, and is, growing and we need to offer them advantages: in proximity, in freight, and foremost – in our service. Our strength is in our products and our people and to become “The Strongest Name in Steel,” we know you can’t have one without the other.

Our dedication to the service side of steel plate distribution has helped galvanize our reputation of strength and strategic decision making on behalf of our customers. Or commitment to Houston is rooted in the purchase of a 67,000 square foot building where each and every piece of steel is protected from the elements in an indoor facility. As a global company, Leeco Steel’s buying power continues to grow even faster than Leeco itself, which also benefits our customers.

And that’s what it’s all about: benefitting our customers. Every decision we make has this end goal in mind and that was the driving force behind opening Leeco Steel Houston. We are excited to be here. 

- C.J. Tylka, manager of the Houston facility

Yes Leeco Steel Featured for Utilizing AP, AR Automation Taking It Paperless: Major Steel Distributor Utilizes AP, AR Automation http://www.leecosteel.com/leeco-steel-featured-for-utilizing-ap-ar-automation.html Industry leader, Leeco Steel, went paperless in both their AP and AR departments and the results of doing so were extremely beneficial.

Read the full article here: www.manufacturing.net

Every company is looking for ways to become more efficient and accurate, especially in their accounts payable (AP) and accounts receivable (AR) departments. Whether it’s saving time, minimizing mistakes, or streamlining processes, it’s vital to a company that AP and AR are running smoothly. Going paperless with a document management system has helped businesses manage time more effectively, better utilize their Microsoft Dynamics ERP solution and improve business processes.

A Paperless ERP solution can benefit any organization in any industry. In one case study, major steel industry player, Leeco Steel, went paperless in both their AP and AR departments and the results of doing so were extremely beneficial. Leeco has been experiencing sufficient growth in the company and, rather than adding more employees to their departments, they wanted to make their processes more efficient.

“A lot happened at the end of 2013,” CFO Mark Krzmarzick said. “We saw a lot of growth and we didn’t want to just add more people, we needed to make everybody more efficient in preparation for our growth.”

Upon looking for a paperless document management solution, Leeco Steel was seeking to:

·         Increase employee efficiency and effectiveness

·         Simplify AP processes

·         Find a scalable solution that applied to other departments

·         Increase billing accuracy

·         Make the AP process more transparent

·         Streamline AR processes

A document management solution that has the ability to automate AP and AR processes helps eliminate manual data entry. In this case, Leeco Steel wanted a product that would allow them web access and the ability for the company’s IT department to manage their own system to cut back on costs. Going paperless helps companies minimize mistakes caused by manual data entry, losing paper documents and misfiling papers.

Here’s how a document management solution helped Leeco Steel operate more efficiently and strive toward continued growth:

Accounts Payable Automation

Looking toward the future, Leeco Steel wanted an automation solution that would be able to expand into other departments. By streamlining the AP process, other processes would follow suit and create a more efficient workflow.

In the AP department, Leeco’s chosen document management solution managed all of their invoices, both print and electronic. The invoices were indexed, routed, and archived without the need for manila folders, filing cabinets and binder tabs. Instead of risking the possibility of data entry errors, the entire process is now automated and keeps their invoices and other documents meticulously organized. In doing this, time can be used more efficiently by employees who are no longer tediously entering data manually. Better time management leads to a more effective company.

Accounts Receivable Automation

The company’s AR department also benefitted from streamlining processes with automated document management. The department had previously endured a daily multi step process to manage documents. The company chose to automate instead. In doing so, they were able to reduce the cumbersome process and, rather than sending multiple email to clients and customers, they were able to send out one all-inclusive email that contained all of the content that had previously been sent individually.

Companies can become more efficient by streamlining business processes and integrating both the accounts payable and accounts receivable departments. This integration makes it quicker, easier, and safer to manage invoices and other documents. By automating these processes, employees are freed up to work on other crucial business projects.

Since implementing AP and AR automation with their existing Microsoft Dynamics GP platform, productivity at Leeco has been enhanced. Previously, Leeco was processing approximately 3,000 invoices through their AP department. They are now able to process 3,600, a 20 percent increase.

In addition, Leeco’s daily Received Not Invoiced (RNI) report, or accrued payables, previously documented $8 million worth of unpaid materials. Their RNI report has been reduced to only $1 million. This has resulted in fewer incorrectly vouchered receipts in the RNI report and has saved the AP department time and improved accuracy.

If your company is ready to streamline AP and AR processes, increase efficiency, and better manage time spent handling and approving invoices and other documents, it may be time to look into an automated document management system.

What is Mill Scale?

Mill scale is a flakey overlay that forms on steel plate during the hot-rolling or heat-treatment processes. Mill scale, which is a type of iron oxide, actually protects steel from corrosion for a period of time, but begins to break and flake as it is handled and exposed to the atmosphere. Mill scale does not diminish the strength or quality of steel plate, but can be unattractive. For projects that require a finished, polished look, mill scale is often fully removed, but many projects allow mill scale to fall away naturally.

Can I Paint Over Mill Scale?

Mill scale is not uniform and falls away over time. For these reasons, painting over mill scale will result in chipping, cracking and popping of the paint, as the scale flakes away. To paint a steel plate covered in mill scale, the scale must first be removed.

How Does Leeco Steel Remove Mill Scale?

Leeco Steel’s shot blast machine uses abrasive blasting to remove mill scale. A steel plate is placed on a bed of rollers. The bed then inverts at a 45-degree angle and enters the shot blast chamber, where tiny pellets – about the size of sand – are blasted against the top and bottom plate surfaces, dislodging and removing dirt and scale. Because steel is so strong, this process does not damage the actual steel plate. Contact Leeco Steel’s sales team at (888) 533-2606 to learn more about this process.

Exploring Structural Steel

From the buildings we visit, to the homes we live in to the roads we travel, structural steel is a versatile construction material that offers structural strength and fabrication versatility.

This article takes a deeper look at structural steel, its composition, characteristics, uses and more. For information on specific grades of structural steel, browse our high-strength low-alloy structural steel plate page.

What is Structural Steel?

Structural steel is a regulated category of steel that must meet industry standards for composition and dimensional tolerances. In the United States, ASTM International specifies and regulates steel grades. Similarly, Canada and Europe have their own regulating bodies and standards. While Leeco Steel does supply CSA G40.21 steel plate and EN standard steel plate, this article will focus on ASTM standards.

There are a variety of structural steel grades, the most popular being ASTM A36 and ASTM A572. These and other structural steel grades are primarily used to build frames of buildings and bridges. They are also used in the construction of:

According to research published by the American Institute of Steel Construction, structural steel comprised 47% of all construction materials, making it highly likely that any building, bridge or structure you encounter owes some of its design to structural steel.

Producing & Testing Structural Steel

To fully understand how structural steel differs from non-structural steel, such as steel used on military tanks, ships or truck beds, we must first look at structural steel’s composition.

Steel can be produced from recycling old steel, or can be made from raw materials. The process of converting recycled steel into new steel involves melting down existing steel and refining it to fit certain specifications. Producing steel from raw materials is a much longer process.

Steel is an alloy comprised of iron and carbon, both of which are abundant, but rarely found in pure form. To produce steel from raw materials, iron is extracted from iron ore, which is rich in iron oxides. In the United States, the majority of iron ore is extracted from taconite, which is found in abundance in Minnesota. The extraction process grinds taconite into a sandy composition, and uses magnets to separate iron ore (in the form of magnetite) from other minerals and substances.

While iron is typically thought of as being hard and strong, raw iron ore is actually soft enough to cut with a knife and some muscle. It is the addition of carbon that gives iron-based alloys their strength.

The most common way of producing an iron-carbon alloy is by mixing coke, a carbon-rich form of coal, with iron ore and applying heat until the coke ignites. This intense heating causes coke to drop carbons and bond to oxygens from the iron oxides, leaving a mixture of iron and carbon. This process known as reduction.

After reduction, the material contains about 4% carbon. It then undergoes additional heating and cooling processes to reduce the amount of carbon, making the material harder and stronger. The material becomes steel once the carbon content falls below 2.1% of the material’s weight. To produce structural steel, carbon must be further reduced until its composition is only 0.05-0.25%.

Stack of finished steel plate

The end result is structural steel, which boasts a high strength-to-weight ratio, is 100% recyclable and economically priced. There are many grades of structural steel, all of which differ slightly in composition. These compositions play a major role in determining the material needed for any given project.

Alternatively, the steel can be further processed – through additional heating and cooling treatments and/or the addition of alloys such as chromium, molybdenum and titanium – to increase hardness. These processes impact overall brittleness, in most cases, making the resulting material not ideal for structural use.

Structural Steel Composition

Below is the composition of two popular grades of structural steel: ASTM A36 and ASTM 572. Other structural steel grades have similar compositions, but may also have additional alloys or have underwent further processing.

GradeCarbonManganesePhosphorusSulfurSilicone
A36 0.25-0.29% 1.03% 0.04% 0.05% 0.28%
A572 0.18-0.23% 0.5-0.7% ?0.035% ?0.04% 0.150-0.3%
A514* 0.12-0.21% 0.85% Not specified Not specified 0.28%

*A514 also contains 0.48% chromium, 0.2% molybdenum, 0.02% titanium, 0.05% vanadium and 0.003% boron.

The primary difference in composition between structural and non-structural steel are the presence of additional alloys that increase hardness, but also increase brittleness. In some cases, the additional alloys still produce structural-grade steel, but in other cases, the steel produced is too brittle to be used in structural capacities.

Yield and Tensile Strength

Outside of chemical composition, yield and tensile strengths help determine the steel grade and overall application.

Yield strength is the maximum point of stress at which material will change shape permanently. For example, when jumping off a diving board, the board naturally bends to absorb your weight and energy, but once you leap from the board, the board will return to its original shape.

The board’s yield strength would be the point where it bends under weight and energy, and remains permanently bent even after the diver launches.

Yield is an important characteristic of structural steel, which must have some give to absorb weight. In bridges, for example, the yield strength is the maximum weight the bridge can withstand before undergoing permanent damage.

Tensile strength is the point at which bent material will break. In our diving board example, this is the weight and energy it would take to snap the board.

Below is a chart that shows the yield and tensile points of three types of common structural steel. These points are measured in pounds per square inch (“psi”) or kilopounds per square inch (“ksi”), as shown below. They are also sometimes referenced in megapascals.

GradeYield PointTensile Point
A36 36 ksi 58-80 ksi
A572 42-65 ksi* 0.5-0.7%
A514 100 ksi 110-130 ksi

*Yield is dependent on thickness, but 50 ksi is the most common grade

These two metrics are critical to engineers as they plan the material needed for a particular project.

Charpy Impact Test

Especially important in structures is their ability to absorb energy. Brittle materials can only absorb a low amount of energy before fracturing or failing. Structural steel combines strength with ductility, allowing it to absorb great amounts of energy before failing.

The Charpy impact test – named after Georges Charpy, who standardized impact testing – uses a heavy hammer pendulum to measure the amount of energy a type of steel can absorb. The test goes a step further and tests impacts at varying temperatures. This is important for steel-based structures that are outdoors in extreme temperatures.

Charpy tests are quite common for structural steel projects. A small sample of the steel – known as a coupon – is cut out of the master plate and taken to an independent lab for testing. The results tell engineers if the material is adequate for their project.

By 

Last year was a banner year for the wind industry with some 12,000 new MW installed. You might guess the top three states for new installations: Texas, California, and Iowa. But can you guess the fourth?  It was Illinois.

Acciona ImageGen

Acciona turbines like this one work at the EcoGrove wind park in Illinois.

The state is also home to a couple of turbine OEMs – Nordex and Acciona – gearbox manufacturer Winergy, tower manufacturer Broadwind, along with many other second and third-tier manufacturers. So to put Illinois in the spotlight, AWEA recently organized the AWEA Chicago Wind Energy Leadership Forum to let several of its wind-industry executives comment on the course of the industry and their best guess where it might be going this year and next.

Panelists included:

The 90 minute discussion ranged from needed legislation, the PTC and the fiscal cliff, improving capacity factors, financing ideas, the compatibility of wind and natural gas, and more. Here are a few of the discussion highlights.

Leeco Steel’s John Purcell: “We made quite a transition from the end of 2012 in which the last five months were almost idle production. We were blessed with the extension of the PTC and that let us ramp up into 2013. Customers are getting more active through this year and we expect that next year as well.”

J.P. Morgan’s John Eber: “Wind delivers clean energy and at a constant fixed price over 20 years. Few other energy sources can do that, so that it provides stability to the market. And that is a big difference compared to where we were in 2004.”

Winergy Drive System’s Terry Royer: “From the manufacturing and supplier’s perspective, we’re also planning on growing into 2014. But questions will arise in the summer months when we start looking out 12 to 18 months more, when the impact of the extension begins wearing off. What happens then? What will be the next discussion regarding legislation that continues to support the industry? Of course, that depends on what legislators do, which might include comprehensive tax reform. Still we look for a healthy 2014, even as we work with legislators to better clarify what will come.”

Bloomberg’s Chris Martin: “The definition of ‘begin construction’ from the PTC is broad enough.

“Cape wind says it received some financing support and would be the first offshore wind if it gets built, but they have to show they started construction this year. Do you see projects forming that could last more than a couple years, to keep the industry moving?”

Winergy’s Terry Royer: “Chris, this is why we are anxious to hear from the Treasury Dept. It is hard to define ‘begin construction’ now. But to a previous question, I think manufacturers are resilient, and financial guys are creative, so we are waiting on legislators. We are just waiting for solid policy and certainty. We think we have a good product and the message is this: Costs have come down, turbines are more reliable than ever, and manufacturing is waiting to do its job again. So when we hear from the Treasury Dept. as to what they say defines the term from the PTC. We’ll also see if there is another cliff in 2014.”

Invenergy’s Jim Murphy: “For onshore wind, the development construction cycle is well known. Typically it’s 6 to 12 months, so I don’t expect to see projects going on for years as an offshore project might. Hopefully, as John was saying, it’s a non-issue, by the time we get to a point where we have certainty in the system.”

Leeco Steel’s John Purcell: “As long as I have known wind energy, it has been asking for more stability, and there have been a variety of different legislative proposals for that. Certainly the RPS provides additional stability and that has been discussed at the national level, but there are more subtle policies in the tax code. One that is getting attention is the Master Limited Partnership which would be an investment vehicle. If put into law, it would not need extending every other year. It’s there for oil and gas, and other energy sectors. So one financing option is to write renewable energy into that law along with gas and oil. That would be helpful, but that takes an act of Congress.  Those three small words are such a hurdle.”

Bloomberg’s Chris Martin: “What tone do you expect from the upcoming AWEA WINDPOWER conference and what will be the important topics for the industry?”

Leeco’s John Purcell: “Since the president has made renewable energy a large part of his administration, and without the hazard of reelection, he has nothing to lose from his actions. So I hope we’ll hear in May that renewable energy remains on the forefront and something that will be a bigger negotiated package for future energy policy. We are here in the President’s hometown, and a state supportive of development and manufacturing.

We make the steel for the towers and turbines, so policy will be a huge jobs creator and positive impact on Illinois and the states around us. A lot of manufacturing that was created has gone away. But I know about capital markets and manufacturing, and if there is certainty in the market, money will be borrowed, lent, and put to good use. That is what I’m hopeful for.”

AWEA’s Rob Gramlich: “One theme at this year’s conference in May is that we are coming off a year for an industry that relies on Washington policy. Things got pretty nasty last year. There was partisan gridlock and partisan attacks. Although some things got accomplished, the attacks on clean energy got pretty nasty.

“Despite that, the wind industry emerged from all that. We look around now and realize that if something does not kill us, it makes us stronger. The wind industry stayed united through all that turmoil, all our allies stood proudly with us, and actually, we feel good about the campaign for the PTC extension. We survived the worst, and some of the gridlock is subsiding. We could have an option teed up with bipartisan support. It is hard to say what legislation opportunities are out there, but we will be ready to keep things moving.”

Bloomberg’s Chris Martin: “We talk about the cost of wind power coming down, and fortunately, the development of shale gas has made natural gas more competitive. That has changed the economics of energy. How does it affect the wind industry?”

Invenergy’s Jim Murphy:  “Our costs have been coming down and we have seen great improvement in turbine efficiency. Here’s an example. Our first wind project began development in 2003 but did not finish because the net capacity factor would have been about 20%, not good enough. That would not have been an economic success for the company. Now fast-forward to 2012. We put several farms in Illinois and completed construction on others with net capacity factors over 40%. That is a huge move, a huge increase in energy production, of course with incremental costs and more turbines. So the economics have improved. The net capacity factor is a critical driver and a metric that is important when comparing wind with other sources of generation. You often hear that wind is intermittent and does not have a high capacity factor. And yet, we are moving to higher capacity factors. Projects now in other parts of the Midwest are approaching or exceeding 50%.”

J.P. Morgan’s John Eber: “I can confirm that. We have clients all over the country, some 90 different wind farms. In the last two years, capacity factors are increasing all over the country. Equipment manufacturers have come up with improved designs, taller towers, longer blades, and improved electronics. So the same sites a few years ago would produce the lower factors are now much higher, and that has allowed reducing the cost of power and competing with natural gas.

“In fact, I see wind and natural gas as compatible. They need each other. Natural gas is important to the country but it is not nearly as clean as wind. And wind needs a base load power available when it is not blowing. So there is a compatible mix between the two, and a few utilities show that.

“Remember, you can fix in the cost of wind for 20 years. You can’t do that with natural gas. It’s too volatile even though the price is attractive now.”

(Editor’s note: Bloomberg.com/energy reports that as of March 29, Nymex natural gas carries a price of $4.07/million BTUs, and that is up from about $3.50 a couple months ago and about $2.50 a year ago.)

Yes The Rock Island Clean Line The Rock Island Clean Line http://www.leecosteel.com/the-rock-island-clean-line.html The Rock Island Clean Line is a 500-mile overhead high voltage direct current transmission line...

The Rock Island Clean Line is a 500-mile overhead high voltage direct current transmission line that will deliver 3,500 megawatts from northwest Iowa and the surrounding region to communities in Illinois and other states to the east, areas that have a strong demand for clean, reliable energy. The name of the project comes from the Rock Island Railroad, which stretches across the entire state of Iowa, through the city of Rock Island and into Illinois.

This exciting and vital project is being met with resistance from a variety of angles. Most of that resistance is rooted in misinformation about the industry as a whole. Bottom line: wind energy is clean, endless and a resource for both power and economic impact.

The Rock Island Clean Line is estimated to provide more than 5,000 construction jobs and more than 500 permanent jobs to maintain and operate the wind farms and the transmission line. In addition to these jobs, the Rock Island Clean Line will spur increased employment opportunities in many sectors including manufacturing of turbines, towers and cable, as well as hospitality and education.

As a member of the board of directors for the American Wind Energy Association, and supplier of product that serves the wind industry itself, I felt it was imperative that I shared my views on the importance of the Rock Island Clean line. I wrote an OpEd piece that was distribute to a variety of local newspapers -- here's that letter.
Leeco Steel has been an active supplier and supporter to the wind energy industry for more than six years. As the main supplier of plate steel to the wind industry in North America, we understand that the industry itself is quite young in the United States. We have seen it evolve first hand into an integral component of a national energy policy. Lecco’s Steel’s involvement with wind energy has not been on the perimeter. We have rolled up our sleeves and educated ourselves on best practices, immersed ourselves in our customers business and took action on national policy as a board member of the American Wind Energy Association.

Wind energy has already proven a reliable energy source by providing significant amounts of electricity across major parts of the U.S. Iowa produces more than 20 percent of its electricity from wind, and wind energy recently provided more than 25 percent of the electricity being used across 11 Midwest states. A 2012 report from Synapse Energy Economics found that wind energy can save the average Midwestern household up to $200 per year.
Reports from Minnesota show that in 2011, wind power contributed 12.7 percent of its electricity generation, supported up to 3,000 jobs and contributed $8 million in land-lease payments. And that is just one state.

Data and analysis from utilities, the government and independent utility system operators confirm that adding wind energy displaces large quantities of fossil fuel use and carbon dioxide pollution. That’s because when the wind is blowing, the electricity generated displaces the output of the most expensive, least efficient power plants. Utility operators accommodate gradual and predictable changes in wind output with the same tools they use to deal with fluctuations in electricity demand as well as sudden outages of large fossil and nuclear power plants, which are far more costly to deal with.

Leeco Steel understands that wind power is a vital component of a national energy policy and we know the Rock Island Clean Line is a smart idea for our energy independence.

Yes John Purcell, VP:Energy, thanks Sen. Mark Kirk for supporting the extension of the PTC
in a letter to the editor of the Naperville Sun Wind Power Deserves Support http://www.leecosteel.com/letter-to-the-editor.html

John Purcell, VP, wrote this letter to the editor of Naperville Sun thanking Illinois Senator Kirk for joining a bipartisan coalition calling for the immediate extension of the PTC.

Investing in wind power has proven to be a good deal for Illinois. Wind has attracted over $7.2 billion in capital investment to the state and created thousands of well-paying jobs.

That’s a big reason why I want to thank Illinois Republican Sen. Mark Kirk for supporting policy that will help keep the wind power success story going not just in Illinois, but all across the United States.

Recently, Sen. Kirk joined a bipartisan coalition of 144 Senate and House members calling for an immediate extension of the Production Tax Credit and Investment Tax Credit. These tax credits have helped American wind power attract up to $25 billion a year in private investment into our national economy and foster economic development in all 50 states. Illinois alone has created nearly 7,000 jobs at 36 facilities around the state due to growing wind power.

Leeco Steel started as a scrap shop in south Chicago more than 130 years ago and is now North America’s main supplier of the plate steel used to construct modern wind turbines. Our staff of more than 100 employees has witnessed the positive impact wind energy has had on our business, and manufacturing as a whole. Yet wind lacks the support of a stable national energy policy that will further encourage investment and in turn, create jobs.

By calling for an extension of both the PTC and the ITC, Kirk is standing up for Illinois workers and for an American-made industry that benefits our economy.

John Purcell

Yes By the Numbers By the Numbers http://www.leecosteel.com/by-the-numbers.html I have always been a numbers person. They tell me everything I need to know about the health of our company, Leeco Steel, which supplies plate steel to companies all over North America...

As a member of our accounting department, I have very close relationship with what everyone in our company is concerned about – the numbers. 

I have always been a numbers person. They tell me everything I need to know about the health of our company, Leeco Steel, which supplies plate steel to companies all over North America. Everyone on the accounting team is the same way—that’s why we do what we do. 

Processes are part of the daily rhythm of the accounting department. It’s essential we have a steady, and predicable, approach to the tasks we must accomplish for Leeco Steel’s fiscal stability. 

Predictability and routine can often breed complacency. But, this isn’t a place that encourages complacency. We evaluate our company’s process health frequently; asking the questions “How can we do things better for our customers? For our company? How can we use the technology we have to make things better for both of us?”  

We determined it was time to streamline our accounting and billing practices by eliminating one of its biggest components: paper.  Starting spring of 2014, Leeco Steel is hoping to get as many of our customers on e-statements as possible. 

We reviewed the data and it was clear that savings could be seen in a variety of ways by using e-statements:

 Time.

Money

We do have some customers that want the paper correspondence and we will happily accommodate. But the transition from the habit of paper to the ease of e-statements translates into savings for both Leeco Steel and its customers.

Yes Why Houston? Manager of Houston facility discusses Leeco Steel Houston http://www.leecosteel.com/why-houston.html As summer gets into full swing, it’s becoming clear why the next step in Leeco's growth plan was to expand our Texas reach to Houston. There’s a lot happening here!

Leeco Steel, Houston, officially opened in February.  As summer gets into full swing, it’s becoming crystal clear why the next logical step in Leeco’s growth plan was to expand our Texas reach to Houston. There’s a lot happening here.

We have seen first hand how the south is a robust market for steel plate. Leeco Steel set up shop in Fort Worth early in 2009 with a hardworking, knowledgeable team backed by an impressive supply of steel plate ready to ship. During these past five years, our Texas team has become familiarized in the market tendencies and intricacies of the South, one of the largest steel plate consumption markets in North America.

Leeco Steel doesn’t want to add locations for the sake of adding locations. The decision to add a facility in a market must make sense – and Houston was a no-brainer. Our customer base was, and is, growing and we need to offer them advantages: in proximity, in freight, and foremost – in our service. Our strength is in our products and our people and to become “The Strongest Name in Steel,” we know you can’t have one without the other.

Our dedication to the service side of steel plate distribution has helped galvanize our reputation of strength and strategic decision making on behalf of our customers. Or commitment to Houston is rooted in the purchase of a 67,000 square foot building where each and every piece of steel is protected from the elements in an indoor facility. As a global company, Leeco Steel’s buying power continues to grow even faster than Leeco itself, which also benefits our customers.

And that’s what it’s all about: benefitting our customers. Every decision we make has this end goal in mind and that was the driving force behind opening Leeco Steel Houston. We are excited to be here.

Yes Leeco Steel Featured for Utilizing AP, AR Automation Taking It Paperless: Major Steel Distributor Utilizes AP, AR Automation http://www.leecosteel.com/leeco-steel-featured-for-utilizing-ap-ar-automation.html Industry leader, Leeco Steel, went paperless in both their AP and AR departments and the results of doing so were extremely beneficial.

Read the full article here: www.manufacturing.net

Every company is looking for ways to become more efficient and accurate, especially in their accounts payable (AP) and accounts receivable (AR) departments. Whether it’s saving time, minimizing mistakes, or streamlining processes, it’s vital to a company that AP and AR are running smoothly. Going paperless with a document management system has helped businesses manage time more effectively, better utilize their Microsoft Dynamics ERP solution and improve business processes.

A Paperless ERP solution can benefit any organization in any industry. In one case study, major steel industry player, Leeco Steel, went paperless in both their AP and AR departments and the results of doing so were extremely beneficial. Leeco has been experiencing sufficient growth in the company and, rather than adding more employees to their departments, they wanted to make their processes more efficient.

“A lot happened at the end of 2013,” CFO Mark Krzmarzick said. “We saw a lot of growth and we didn’t want to just add more people, we needed to make everybody more efficient in preparation for our growth.”

Upon looking for a paperless document management solution, Leeco Steel was seeking to:

·         Increase employee efficiency and effectiveness

·         Simplify AP processes

·         Find a scalable solution that applied to other departments

·         Increase billing accuracy

·         Make the AP process more transparent

·         Streamline AR processes

A document management solution that has the ability to automate AP and AR processes helps eliminate manual data entry. In this case, Leeco Steel wanted a product that would allow them web access and the ability for the company’s IT department to manage their own system to cut back on costs. Going paperless helps companies minimize mistakes caused by manual data entry, losing paper documents and misfiling papers.

Here’s how a document management solution helped Leeco Steel operate more efficiently and strive toward continued growth:

Accounts Payable Automation

Looking toward the future, Leeco Steel wanted an automation solution that would be able to expand into other departments. By streamlining the AP process, other processes would follow suit and create a more efficient workflow.

In the AP department, Leeco’s chosen document management solution managed all of their invoices, both print and electronic. The invoices were indexed, routed, and archived without the need for manila folders, filing cabinets and binder tabs. Instead of risking the possibility of data entry errors, the entire process is now automated and keeps their invoices and other documents meticulously organized. In doing this, time can be used more efficiently by employees who are no longer tediously entering data manually. Better time management leads to a more effective company.

Accounts Receivable Automation

The company’s AR department also benefitted from streamlining processes with automated document management. The department had previously endured a daily multi step process to manage documents. The company chose to automate instead. In doing so, they were able to reduce the cumbersome process and, rather than sending multiple email to clients and customers, they were able to send out one all-inclusive email that contained all of the content that had previously been sent individually.

Companies can become more efficient by streamlining business processes and integrating both the accounts payable and accounts receivable departments. This integration makes it quicker, easier, and safer to manage invoices and other documents. By automating these processes, employees are freed up to work on other crucial business projects.

Since implementing AP and AR automation with their existing Microsoft Dynamics GP platform, productivity at Leeco has been enhanced. Previously, Leeco was processing approximately 3,000 invoices through their AP department. They are now able to process 3,600, a 20 percent increase.

In addition, Leeco’s daily Received Not Invoiced (RNI) report, or accrued payables, previously documented $8 million worth of unpaid materials. Their RNI report has been reduced to only $1 million. This has resulted in fewer incorrectly vouchered receipts in the RNI report and has saved the AP department time and improved accuracy.

If your company is ready to streamline AP and AR processes, increase efficiency, and better manage time spent handling and approving invoices and other documents, it may be time to look into an automated document management system.

Yes Steel Country http://www.leecosteel.com/steel-country.html Leeco Steel thrives in the city of Pittsburgh, where the city’s hard working attitude pushes the needle forward for the steel industry.

Growing up in Pittsburgh, you can't help but feel like steel is in your blood whether you work in the industry or not. Pittsburgh may not be the steel maker it once was, but you wouldn't know that with the amount of pride people here carry with them. This blue collar town has a hard-working attitude that continually grows the industry….no wonder Leeco Steel is the perfect fit for the city of Pittsburgh. This company’s competitive mindset sets the precedent for steel plate distribution and our East branch has, and will continue, to grow year after year.

As a resident of downtown Pittsburgh, I have seen the progress in the construction of this city. Each week, it feels as though a new restaurant, office building, or sports complex is in the works. With this expansion, I believe that we will be in more need than ever, as steel provides the strongest foundation for many of these structures.

Yes Understanding Abrasion Resistant Steel Plate Understanding Abrasion Resistant Steel http://www.leecosteel.com/understanding-abrasion-resistant-steel-plate.html The difference between common steel plate and abrasion resistant steel plate is significant, but the differences between AR400, AR450 and AR500 are more subtle. This article explains how abrasion resistant steel plate is produced, and explores the differences between hardness levels.

AR400 vs. AR450 vs. AR500 – Understanding Abrasion Resistant Steel

Abrasion Resistant Steel Plate

In construction and fabrication, the grade and composition of the steel plate materials used makes a huge impact on the final product. Abrasion resistant steel plate is a common steel plate that boasts a harder, tougher quality that lasts about four times longer than ordinary high-strength structural steel plate.

But what makes it tougher, and how do you know when your project requires abrasion resistant steel?

We get this question a lot, so here’s the run-down on abrasion resistant steel plate, as well as the differences between hardness levels AR400, AR450, AR500 and beyond.

What is Abrasion Resistant Steel Plate?

Abrasion resistant (AR) steel plate is a high-carbon alloy steel plate. This means that AR is harder due to the addition of carbon, and formable and weather resistant due to added alloys.

Carbon added during the formation of the steel plate substantially increases toughness and hardness, but reduces strength. Therefore, AR plate is used in situations where abrasions and wear and tear are the main causes of failure. AR plate is not ideal for structural construction uses, like support beams in bridges or buildings.

Common uses for AR plate include conveyors, buckets, dump liners, construction attachments, grates, body armor and ballistic plates (and as targets at shooting ranges).

How the Quenched & Tempered Process Creates AR Plate

AR material is produced by quenching and tempering forged steel blocks, or ingots. During this process, the grain structure is changed to increase toughness and encourage formability (or, to be less brittle), and results in through-hardening of the material.

Quenching and tempering (Q&T) is a two-part process:

Quenching occurs when steel brought to a high temperature – usually between 1,500-1,650-degrees Fahrenheit – is rapidly cooled with water. This process causes crystal structures to form within the steel, increasing hardness.

Tempering is the process of re-heating quenched steel to a below-critical temperature (around 300-700-degrees Fahrenheit), and then allowing the plate to cool in normal air temperatures.

The reheating the material breaks down the crystal structures formed during the quenching process, while the long cooling allows the crystal structures to refrom – maintaining most of the strength and hardness, but adding to overall ductility.

What’s With the F?

Many times, abrasion resistant steel is labeled "AR400F" and "AR450F" (and sometimes "AR500F"). Today, AR material with or without the "F" are interchangeable, but – historically – material with an "F" simply meant that it was "formable" and could be bent to a certain degree without cracking.

When mills produced both formable and non-formable steel plate, formable was slightly more expensive. However, diminished demand and more competitive pricing has resulted in the production of formable-only AR steel.

Tempering Steel Plate

What is Through-Hardening?

AR steel is often described as being through-hardened, but what does that really mean?

When grain structure changes during the initial heating stage of Q&T, the composition of the entire plate changes. This is referred to as through-hardening. Through-hardening differs from "case-hardening," also referred to as "surface-hardening," which only hardens the surface while allowing the metal deeper underneath to remain soft. In this case, the composition, or hardening, of the plate only changes at the surface level.

AR400 versus AR450 versus AR500+

Before we dive into the difference between these common types of AR steel, it is important to clarify that AR steels are not governed by a specific chemistry, but a level of hardness.

Different mills may have different “recipes” for AR steel, but produced material is administered a hardness test – known as the Brinell Test – to determine the category in which it falls.

The technical difference between AR400, AR450 and AR500 is the Brinell Hardness Number (BHN), which indicates the material’s level of hardness:

AR400: 360-440 BHN Typically
AR450: 430-480 BHN Typically
AR500: 460-544 BHN Typically
AR600: 570-625 BHN Typically (less common, but available)

So, what does this mean in terms of usability? How do you know which level of hardness your project needs?

Projects that require AR materials are typically those that need a specific balance between hardness and brittleness. As you increase hardness, you also increase brittleness, making the material difficult to form, shape and weld. For some projects, hardness is critical, so brittleness is sacrificed. But in other cases, the material must be formed and handled, so the level of hardness must be reduced.

As a general rule, AR400 and AR450 are the “sweet spots” in terms of good hardness combined with good formability. For projects that truly beat up the material, AR500 and AR600 will last longer and need to be replaced less frequently.

Ultimately, you and your team will be the best judge of which material your project needs. Cost, of course, comes into play, as sometimes it’s worth having a formable material that needs to be replaced more often.

Exploring Structural Steel

From the buildings we visit, to the homes we live in to the roads we travel, structural steel is a versatile construction material that offers structural strength and fabrication versatility.

This article takes a deeper look at structural steel, its composition, characteristics, uses and more. For information on specific grades of structural steel, browse our high-strength low-alloy structural steel plate page.

What is Structural Steel?

Structural steel is a regulated category of steel that must meet industry standards for composition and dimensional tolerances. In the United States, ASTM International specifies and regulates steel grades. Similarly, Canada and Europe have their own regulating bodies and standards. While Leeco Steel does supply CSA G40.21 steel plate and EN standard steel plate, this article will focus on ASTM standards.

There are a variety of structural steel grades, the most popular being ASTM A36 and ASTM A572. These and other structural steel grades are primarily used to build frames of buildings and bridges. They are also used in the construction of:

According to research published by the American Institute of Steel Construction, structural steel comprised 47% of all construction materials, making it highly likely that any building, bridge or structure you encounter owes some of its design to structural steel.

Producing & Testing Structural Steel

To fully understand how structural steel differs from non-structural steel, such as steel used on military tanks, ships or truck beds, we must first look at structural steel’s composition.

Steel can be produced from recycling old steel, or can be made from raw materials. The process of converting recycled steel into new steel involves melting down existing steel and refining it to fit certain specifications. Producing steel from raw materials is a much longer process.

Steel is an alloy comprised of iron and carbon, both of which are abundant, but rarely found in pure form. To produce steel from raw materials, iron is extracted from iron ore, which is rich in iron oxides. In the United States, the majority of iron ore is extracted from taconite, which is found in abundance in Minnesota. The extraction process grinds taconite into a sandy composition, and uses magnets to separate iron ore (in the form of magnetite) from other minerals and substances.

While iron is typically thought of as being hard and strong, raw iron ore is actually soft enough to cut with a knife and some muscle. It is the addition of carbon that gives iron-based alloys their strength.

The most common way of producing an iron-carbon alloy is by mixing coke, a carbon-rich form of coal, with iron ore and applying heat until the coke ignites. This intense heating causes coke to drop carbons and bond to oxygens from the iron oxides, leaving a mixture of iron and carbon. This process known as reduction.

After reduction, the material contains about 4% carbon. It then undergoes additional heating and cooling processes to reduce the amount of carbon, making the material harder and stronger. The material becomes steel once the carbon content falls below 2.1% of the material’s weight. To produce structural steel, carbon must be further reduced until its composition is only 0.05-0.25%.

Stack of finished steel plate

The end result is structural steel, which boasts a high strength-to-weight ratio, is 100% recyclable and economically priced. There are many grades of structural steel, all of which differ slightly in composition. These compositions play a major role in determining the material needed for any given project.

Alternatively, the steel can be further processed – through additional heating and cooling treatments and/or the addition of alloys such as chromium, molybdenum and titanium – to increase hardness. These processes impact overall brittleness, in most cases, making the resulting material not ideal for structural use.

Structural Steel Composition

Below is the composition of two popular grades of structural steel: ASTM A36 and ASTM 572. Other structural steel grades have similar compositions, but may also have additional alloys or have underwent further processing.

GradeCarbonManganesePhosphorusSulfurSilicone
A36 0.25-0.29% 1.03% 0.04% 0.05% 0.28%
A572 0.18-0.23% 0.5-0.7% 0.035% max 0.04% max 0.150-0.3%
A514* 0.12-0.21% 0.85%     0.28%

*A514 also contains 0.48% chromium, 0.2% molybdenum, 0.02% titanium, 0.05% vanadium and 0.003% boron.

The primary difference in composition between structural and non-structural steel are the presence of additional alloys that increase hardness, but also increase brittleness. In some cases, the additional alloys still produce structural-grade steel, but in other cases, the steel produced is too brittle to be used in structural capacities.

Yield and Tensile Strength

Outside of chemical composition, yield and tensile strengths help determine the steel grade and overall application.

Yield strength is the maximum point of stress at which material will change shape permanently. For example, when jumping off a diving board, the board naturally bends to absorb your weight and energy, but once you leap from the board, the board will return to its original shape.

The board’s yield strength would be the point where it bends under weight and energy, and remains permanently bent even after the diver launches.

Yield is an important characteristic of structural steel, which must have some give to absorb weight. In bridges, for example, the yield strength is the maximum weight the bridge can withstand before undergoing permanent damage.

Tensile strength is the point at which bent material will break. In our diving board example, this is the weight and energy it would take to snap the board.

Below is a chart that shows the yield and tensile points of three types of common structural steel. These points are measured in pounds per square inch (“psi”) or kilopounds per square inch (“ksi”), as shown below. They are also sometimes referenced in megapascals.

GradeYield PointTensile Point
A36 36 ksi 58-80 ksi
A572-50 50 ksi* 65 ksi
A514 110-130 ksi 90-100 ksi*

*Tensile strength for ASTM A514 is dependent on thickness

These two metrics are critical to engineers as they plan the material needed for a particular project.

Charpy Impact Test

Especially important in structures is their ability to absorb energy. Brittle materials can only absorb a low amount of energy before fracturing or failing. Structural steel combines strength with ductility, allowing it to absorb great amounts of energy before failing.

The Charpy impact test – named after Georges Charpy, who standardized impact testing – uses a heavy hammer pendulum to measure the amount of energy a type of steel can absorb. The test goes a step further and tests impacts at varying temperatures. This is important for steel-based structures that are outdoors in extreme temperatures.

Charpy tests are quite common for structural steel projects. A small sample of the steel – known as a coupon – is cut out of the master plate and taken to an independent lab for testing. The results tell engineers if the material is adequate for their project.

Yes By the Numbers By the Numbers http://www.leecosteel.com/by-the-numbers.html I have always been a numbers person. They tell me everything I need to know about the health of our company, Leeco Steel, which supplies plate steel to companies all over North America...

As a member of our accounting department, I have very close relationship with what everyone in our company is concerned about – the numbers. 

I have always been a numbers person. They tell me everything I need to know about the health of our company, Leeco Steel, which supplies plate steel to companies all over North America. Everyone on the accounting team is the same way—that’s why we do what we do. 

Processes are part of the daily rhythm of the accounting department. It’s essential we have a steady, and predicable, approach to the tasks we must accomplish for Leeco Steel’s fiscal stability. 

Predictability and routine can often breed complacency. But, this isn’t a place that encourages complacency. We evaluate our company’s process health frequently; asking the questions “How can we do things better for our customers? For our company? How can we use the technology we have to make things better for both of us?”  

We determined it was time to streamline our accounting and billing practices by eliminating one of its biggest components: paper.  Starting spring of 2014, Leeco Steel is hoping to get as many of our customers on e-statements as possible. 

We reviewed the data and it was clear that savings could be seen in a variety of ways by using e-statements:

 Time.

Money

We do have some customers that want the paper correspondence and we will happily accommodate. But the transition from the habit of paper to the ease of e-statements translates into savings for both Leeco Steel and its customers.

Yes La Línea Limpia de Rock Island La Línea Limpia de Rock Island http://www.leecosteel.com/the-rock-island-clean-line.html The Rock Island Clean Line is a 500-mile overhead high voltage direct current transmission line...

La Línea Limpia de Rock Island es un línea aérea de transmisión de corriente de alto voltaje de 500 millas que entregará 3,500 megawatts desde el noroeste de Iowa y la región circundante hasta comunidades en Illinois y otros estados al este, áreas que tienen una fuerte demanda para energía limpia y fiable. El nombre del proyecto viene del Ferrocarril Rock Island, el cual cruza todo el estado de Iowa, a travéz de la ciudad de Rock Island y hasta Illinois.

Este emocionnte y vital proyecto se ha estado enfrentando con resistencia desde varios ángulos. La mayoría de esa resistencia viene de información errónea acerca de la industria como un todo. La cuestión principal: la energía eólica es limpia, sin fin y un recurso de impacto tanto energético como económico.

Se calcula que la Línea Limpia de Rock Island proverá más de 5,000 trabajos de construcción y más de 500 trabajos permanentes para mantener y operar las granjas eólicas y la línea de transmisión. Además de estos trabajos, la Línea Limpia de Rock Island impulsará un incremento de oportunidades de empleo en muchos sectores incluyendo la manufactura de turbinas, torres y cable, además de hospitalidad y educación.

Como miembro de la junta directiva de la Asociación Americana de Energía Eólica, y suministrador de productos que le sirven a la misma industria eólica, sentí que era imperativo compartir mis opiniones sobre la importancia de la Línea Limpia de Rock Island. Escribí un artículo de OpEd que fue distribuido a una variedad de periódicos locales – aquí está la carta.
Leeco Steel ha sido un suministrados activo y apoyador de la industria de energía eólica por más de seis añoos. Como el suministrador principal de lámina de acero en la industria eólica en Norte América, entendemos que la industria en sí es muy reciente en los Estadoos Unidos. La hemos visto evolucionar en primer plano hasta ser un componente integral de una política energética nacional. El involucramiento de Leeco Steel con la industria eólica no ha sido en el perímetro. Nos hemos subido las mangas y nos hemos educado en cuanto a las mejores prácticas, nos hemos sumergido en los negocios de nuestros clientes y tomamos acción en políticas nacionales como miembro de la junta de la Asociación Americana de Energía Eólica.

La energía eólica ya ha sido comprobada ser una fuente fiable de energía al brindar cantidades significativas de electricidad a lo largo de grandes partes de los Estados Unidos. Iowa produce más de 20% de su electricidad del viento, y la energía eólica recientemente proporcionó más de 25 porciento de la electricidad siendo utilizada en 11 estadosd e medio-oeste. Un reporte del 2012 de Synapse Energy Economics encontró que la energía eólica le puede ahorrar el núcleo familiar promedio del medio-oeste hasta $200 por año.
Reportes desde Minnesota demuestran que en el 2011, la energía eólica contribuyó 12.7 porciento de su generación de electricidad, apoyó hasta 3,000 empleos y contribuyó $8 millones en pagos de alquiler de propiedad land-lease payments. Y eso es sólo un estado.

Datos y análisis de servicios públicos, el gobierno y operadores de sistemas independientes de servicios públicos confirman que agregando la energía eólica desplaza/destituye grandes cantidades de uso de combustible fósil y la contaminación por dióxido de carbono. Eso es porque cuando sopla el viento, la electricidad generada desplaza la producción de las plantas de energía más caras y menos eficientes. Los operadores de servicios públicos acomodan cambios graduales y predecibles en la producción eólica con las mismas herramientas que utilizan para tratar con las fuctuaciones en la demanda eléctrica además de cortes repentinos de grandes plantas nucleares y fósiles, los cuales son mucho más costosos de lidear con ellos.

Leeco Steel entiende que la energía eólica es un componente vital de una política energética nacional y sabemos que la Línea Límpia Rock Island es una idea inteligente para nuestra independencia energética.

Yes Estado de la industria desde la perspectiva de Illinois http://www.leecosteel.com/article-three.html AWEA’s Chicago Leadership Forum: State of the industry from Illinois’s perspective

By

El año pasado fue un año sobresaliente para la industria eólica con unas 12,000 nuevas MW instaladas. Se podrá imaginar los tres estados principales para nuevas instalaciones: Texas, California, y Iowa. ¿Pero se puede imaginar el cuarto? Fue Illinois.

Acciona ImageGen

Turbinas acciona turbines como esta trabajan en el parque eólico Grove en Illinois.

El estado también es hogar a unas turbinas OEMs – Nordex y Acciona – manufacturador de engranaje Winergy, manufacturador de torre Broadwind, en conjunto con muchos otros manufacturadores de segundo y tercer nivel. Con el fin de poner a Illinois en la mira, la AWEA recientmente organizó el Forum AWEA de Liderazgo de Energía Eólica de Chicago para que varios de los ejecutuvos de su industria eólica comentaran sobre el curso de la industria y su mejor cálculo en cuanto a dónde se dirige este año y el siguiente.

Los panelistas incluyeron:

La discusión de 90 minutos tocó desde la legislación necesaria, la PTC y el precipicio fiscal, mejorando los factores de capacidad, ideas de financiamiento, la compatabilidad del viento y el gas natural, y mucho más. Aquí hay algunos de los puntos destacados de la discusión.

John Purcell, de Leeco Steel: “Hicimos una transición bastante notable desde finales del 2012, en el que los últimos cinco meses fueron casi de produción inactiva idle production. Fuimos bendecidos con la extención de la PTC y eso nos permitió entrarle con ganas (ramp up) al 2013. Los clientes se están poniendo más activos a lo largo de este año y tenemos previsto lo mismo para el siguiente año también.”

John Eber, de J.P. Morgan: “El viento brinda energía limpia y en un constante costo fijo por más de 20 años. Pocas otras fuentes de energía pueden hacer eso, entonces eso brinda estabilidad al mercado.Y eso es unagran diferencia en comparación con donde estábamos en el 2004.”

Terry Royer, de Winergy Drive System: “Desde la perspectiva del manufacturador y del suministrador, también tenemos planeado crecer en el 2014. Pero las preguntas comenzarán a surgir en los meses de verano cuando comenzamos viendo al futuro, de 12 a 18 meses más, cuando el impacto de la expansión comienza a desgastarse. ¿Qué pasará en ese entonces? ¿Cuál será la siguiente discusión acerca de la legislación que continúa apoyando a la industria? Por supuesto, eso depende de lo que hagan los legisladores, que puede incluir una amplia reforma fiscal. De igual manera buscamos un 2014 saludable, aún a medida en que trabajamos con los legisladores para aclarar mejor el porvenir.”

Chris Martin, de Bloomberg : “La definición de ‘comience la construcción’ de la PTC es suficientemente amplia.

“Cape wind dice que recibió un apoyo financiero y sería la primera energía eólea mar adentro si se construye, pero deben mostrar que comenzaron con la construcción este año. ¿Usted ve proyectos que se están formando que podrían durar más que un par de años, para mantener a la industria en movimiento?”

Terry Royer, de Winergy: “Chris, ésto es el porqué estamos tan ansiosos para tener noticia del Departamento de Tesorería. Es difícil de definir ahora ‘comience la construcción’. Pero a una pregunta previa, yo creo que los manufacturadores son resilientes/perseverantes, y los chicos financieros son creativos, así que estamos esperando a los legisladores. Sólo estamos esperando una póliza sólida y certeza. Pensamos que tenemos un buen producto y el mensaje es este: los costos han bajado ,las turbinas son más fiables que nunca, y la manufacturación está esperando a hacer su trabajo otra vez. Entonces cuando sepamos del Departamento de Tesorería en cuanto a lo que ellos digan define los términos del PTC. También veremos si hay otro acantilado en el 2014.”

Jim Murphy, de Invenergy: “Para viento tierra adentro, el ciclo de construcción es bien conocido. Típicamente es de 6 a 12 meses, así que no espero ver proyectos tardando años como podría un proyecto mar adentro. Ojalá, como estaba diciendo John, no es un asunto non-issue, para cuando lleguemos a un punto cuando tenemos certeza en el sistema. John was saying, it’s a, by the time we get to a point where we have certainty in the system.”

John Purcell, de Leeco Steel: “En todo el tiempo que he conocido la energía eólica, ha estado pidiendo mayor establidad, y han habido una variedad de propuestas legislativas para eso. Ciertamente la RPS brinda estabilidad adicional y eso se ha discutido a nivel nacional, pero hay pólizas más sutíles en el código de impuestos. Una que está recibiendo atención es la Master Limited Partnership, el cual sería un vehículo de inversiones investment vehicle. Si se hace ley, no necesitaría una extensión cada año por medio. Está allí para el petróleo y el gas, y otros sectores de energía. Entonces una opción financiera es incluir la energía renovable en esa ley al lado del petróleo y el gas. Eso sería de ayuda, pero eso necesita un acto del Congreso. Esas tres palabras pequeñas son un gran obstáculo.”

Chris Martin, de Bloomberg: “¿Cual tono espera usted de la próxima coonferencia de AWEA WINDPOWER y cuales serán lostemas importantes para la industria?”

John Purcell, de Leeco: “Ya que el Presidente ha hecho de la energía renovable una gran parte de su administración, y sin el riesgo de la reelección, él no tiene nada que perder por sus acciones. Entonces espero que escucharemos en mayo que la energía renovable se mantiene en un primer plano y algo que será un paquete negociado más grande para una futura póliza de energía. Estamos aquí en la ciudad natal del Presidente, y un estado que apoya el desarrollo y la manufacturación.

Hacemos el acero para las torres y las turbinas, así que la póliza será un gran creador de empleos e imacto positivo en Illinois y los estados a nuestro alrededor. Mucha de la manufacturación que fue creada se ha ido. Pero yo conozco los mercados capitales y la manufacturación, y si hay certeza en el mercado, el dinero será tomado prestado, se hubiera prestado y puesto a un buen uso. Eso es en lo que yo tengo fe.”

Rob Gramlich, de AWEA: “Un tema en la conferencia de este año en mayo es que estamos saliendo de un año para una industria que depende de la póliza de Washington. Las cosas se pusieron bastante feas el año pasado. Hubo paralización partidaria y ataques partidarios. Aunque se lograron algunas cosas, los ataques a la energía limpia se pusieron bastante feas.

“A pesar de ello, la industria eólica salió de todo eso. Volvemos a ver ahora y nos damos cuenta de que si algo no nos mata, nos fortallece. La industria eólica permaneció unida a lo largo de todo ese caos, y todos nuestros aleados permanecieron orgullosamente a nuestro lado, y en realidad, nos sentimos bien con la campaña para la extención de la PTC. Sobrevivimos a lo peor, y parte de la paralización se está disminuyendo. Puede que tengamos una opción lista con apoyo bipartidario. Es difícil decir cuales oportunidades legislativas están allí, pero estaremos listos para mantener las cosas en movimiento.”

Chris Martin, de Bloomberg: “Hablamos de la disminución del costo de la energía, y afortunadamente, el desarrollo del gas de esquisto ha hechio más competiitivo el gas natural. Eso ha cambiado la economía de la energía. ¿Cómo afecta esto a la industria eólica?”

Jim Murphy, de Invenergy: “Nuestros costos se han estado disminuyendo y hemos visto una gran mejoría en la eficiencia de las turbinas. Aquí hay un ejemplo. Nuestro primer proyecto eólico comenzó con el desarrollo en el 2003 pero no terminó porque el factor de capacidad neto hubiera sido como un 20%, lo cual no es suficiente. Eso no hubiera sido un logro económico para la compañía. Ahora adelantese hasta el 2012. Pusimos varias granjas en Illinois completamos construcción en variios otros con un factor de capacidad neta de más de 40%. Esto es un gran movimiento, un gran incremento en la producción energética, por supuesto con costos adicionales y más turbinas. Así que las economías han mejorado. El factor de capacidad neto es un impulsor crítico y una métrica que es importante cuando se compara al viento con otras fuentes de generación. A menudo se escucha que el viento es intermitente y que no tiene un alto factor de capacidad. Sin embargo, estamos moviendo hacia mayores factores de capacidad. Proyectos ehora en otras partes de medio-oeste se están aproximándose o excediendo el 50%.”

John Eber, de J.P. Morgan: “Yo puedo confirmar eso. Tenemos clientes en todo el país, unas 90 diferentes granjas eólicas. En los últimos dos años, los factores de capacidad están incrementando en todo el país. Manufacturadores de equipo han llegado con diseños mejorados, torres más altas, hélices más largas, y electrónica mejorada. Así que los mismos sitios que hace un par de años producían los factores menores, ahora son mucho mayores, y eso ha permitido reducir el costo de la energía y competir con el gas natural.

“De hecho, yo veo al viento y al gas natural como compatibles. Ellos se necesitan mútuamente. El gas natural es importante para el país pero no es tan limpio como el viento. Y el viento necesita de una energía de carga base base load power cuando no está soplando. Así que hay una mezcla comppatible entre los dos, y unas cuantas utilidades demuestran eso.

“Recuerda, puedes fijar fix in el costo del viento por 20 años. No puedes hacer eso con el gas natural. Es demasiado volátil aunque es precio es atractivo ahorita.”

(Nota del Editor: Bloomberg.com/energy reporta que a partir del 29 dde marzo, el gas natural de Nymex lleva un precio de $4.07/million BTU, y eso es en aumento de unos $3.50 hace unos cuantos meses y como unos $2.50 hace un año.)

Yes John Purcell, VP:Energy, thanks Sen. Mark Kirk for supporting the extension of the PTC
in a letter to the editor of the Naperville Sun Wind Power Deserves Support http://www.leecosteel.com/letter-to-the-editor.html

John Purcell, VP, wrote this letter to the editor of Naperville Sun thanking Illinois Senator Kirk for joining a bipartisan coalition calling for the immediate extension of the PTC.

Investing in wind power has proven to be a good deal for Illinois. Wind has attracted over $7.2 billion in capital investment to the state and created thousands of well-paying jobs.

That’s a big reason why I want to thank Illinois Republican Sen. Mark Kirk for supporting policy that will help keep the wind power success story going not just in Illinois, but all across the United States.

Recently, Sen. Kirk joined a bipartisan coalition of 144 Senate and House members calling for an immediate extension of the Production Tax Credit and Investment Tax Credit. These tax credits have helped American wind power attract up to $25 billion a year in private investment into our national economy and foster economic development in all 50 states. Illinois alone has created nearly 7,000 jobs at 36 facilities around the state due to growing wind power.

Leeco Steel started as a scrap shop in south Chicago more than 130 years ago and is now North America’s main supplier of the plate steel used to construct modern wind turbines. Our staff of more than 100 employees has witnessed the positive impact wind energy has had on our business, and manufacturing as a whole. Yet wind lacks the support of a stable national energy policy that will further encourage investment and in turn, create jobs.

By calling for an extension of both the PTC and the ITC, Kirk is standing up for Illinois workers and for an American-made industry that benefits our economy.

John Purcell

Leeco Steel, Lisle

Yes How Much Does Steel Plate Cost? How Much Does Steel Plate Cost? http://www.leecosteel.com/cost-of-steel-plate.html This article looks at the common factors that impact the cost of steel plate, and highlights situations and behaviors that impact price. When budgeting or estimating a project that requires steel plate or any steel material, it is often challenging to find a ballpark material cost without speaking to a steel supplier. This article looks at the common factors that impact the cost of steel plate, and highlights situations and behaviors that impact price.

The cost of steel plate and other steel materials is complex and fluctuating, as there are a number of factors that can impact price.

Steel is typically priced by hundredweight (CWT), which is the price per 100 pounds of material. In some situations – such as materials market reports – carbon steel price may be reflected per-pound. For example, a CWT price of $40* is equal to $0.40 per pound.

To complicate pricing more, units are often quoted in tons, with 1 ton equaling 2,000 pounds.

So, for example:
2,000 pounds = 1 ton = $40 CWT x [2,000 pounds / 100 pounds]
1 ton = $800*

*The price used in this example is arbitrary and not based on current market levels.

Tip: Use our calculator to determine weight using height, width, thickness and quantity.

With this in mind, let’s move on to exploring factors that impact steel plate price.

Market Prices and Supply & Demand

Steel is a basic raw material that is dictated by the laws of supply and demand, which results in an average market price. Excess supply leads to lower market prices, while limited supply drives market prices higher.

Supply and demand are the most important factors in determining the price of steel at any given moment in time. These market prices change from day-to-day, and sometimes multiple times per day.

Day-to-day fluctuations in price are typically small, meaning it won’t greatly impact the cost of small-to-medium-sized projects. However, for large projects – let’s say a project that requires 10,000 tons of steel – a $1 increase in CWT would add $200,000 to the bill.

Let’s now explore the factors impacting daily steel prices.

#1: Steel Grade

Someone buying a car can expect to pay more for a top-of-the-line SUV than they would a compact economy vehicle.

The same is true with steel. Certain grades are inherently more expensive than others.

ASTM A572 Steel Plate

In general, the CWT increases as the steel grade becomes more specialized – either by adding alloys or using quenched and tempering processes to harden the material.

Below are general steel material categories, ranked from lowest-price to highest.**

**There are exceptions within each category. For example, A656 is a specialty High Strength Low Alloy grade, but is priced more in the range of Quenched & Tempered grades. Conversely, AR-Medium is an Abrasion Resistant grade, but its pricing is more in the range of Pressure Vessel Quality grades.

When soliciting quotes for a project, understand that certain grades will have a higher CWT than others. A full quote should list CWT for each grade. If it does not, it is certainly acceptable to ask. This can help you compare apples-to-apples between quotes.

#2: Order Quantity

As with anything, buying in bulk often lowers per unit costs. The same is true with steel.

When buying in bulk (which is roughly 22 tons or greater), suppliers can build time savings (such as speed and human resources) into CWT.

Additionally, bulk orders enable the supplier to buy in larger bulk from a mill manufacturer, which sees similar time-savings advantages that are passed on through their CWT.

#3: Future Needs

Don’t have a bulk-quantity need? No problem.

Your needs over time can still impact CWT price. Someone who needs one piece of AR500 steel plate for a target practice backdrop has less future need than someone who requires one piece of AR500 per month for five years.

When submitting your project needs to a steel supplier, be sure to indicate future needs, even if buying in smaller quantities. This insight will help the supplier offer a more accurate quoted price on this and future orders.

#4: Steel Grade Origin

The country of origin where the steel material is produced can play a large factor into overall CWT price. Some projects require specific countries of origin to meet quality requirements, but others can be more flexible about where the material originates.

Look for suppliers who source from domestic as well as international mills. These suppliers are more likely to have a wider price range of steel material, giving you more options when you buy.

#5: Required Processes

Requesting steel material that is cut, drilled or cleaned will likely add to overall cost, but may reduce CWT if the steel supplier can handle these requests in-house.

Related: Common Ways Steel Plate is Processed

By bundling a material order with a processing request, suppliers may have more wiggle room with CWT. Be sure to mention any processing needs you may have with suppliers as you solicit quotes.

#6: Steel Material Location

It is costly – in both time and dollars – to transport steel material due to size and weight. For this reason, quality steel suppliers have distribution centers in strategic cities across North America. This allows the supplier to deliver steel faster and more economically to customers across the continent.

A few suppliers build transportation cost into CWT, but most tack it on as an additional expense. When evaluating steel material quotes, be sure to understand how transportation will impact your total cost.

#7: Grade Liquidation

Occasionally, a steel supplier may have too much of a non-standard size or grade and will slash CWT in order to move the material (and clear warehouse space for more popular sizes and grades).

If a project has flexibility around a size and/or grade, it is certainly worth mentioning as you solicit quotes.

Calculating Steel Weight

#8: Supplier Niche

When sourcing steel materials, partnering with a niche supplier can save greatly on CWT. For example, Leeco Steel specializes exclusively in supplying steel plate. Because this is our focus, we can be much more competitive on steel plate pricing than someone who supplies a more mixed variety of steel products (i.e. bars, coils and sheet).

However, sometimes your project requires more varied material types. In these cases, you should evaluate the time saved by working with a general “one-stop-shop” supplier and if it outweighs the CWT savings that can be offered by a niche supplier.

#9: Market Regulation

How could we not mention the elephant in the room? Market regulation can greatly impact global and domestic CWT.

The most recent – and visible – example being the U.S. tariffs placed on imported steel and aluminum in June of 2018. The tariffs made buying steel and aluminum with non-U.S. origins significantly more expensive. The result was a greater demand for U.S. steel (by American buyers). Basic macroeconomics took hold: greater demand lowered the supply and increased prices.

Another related – but perhaps lesser known – variable is government subsidization. For example, the Chinese government subsidizes Chinese steel producers, allowing Chinese steel to be priced below what it actually costs to produce. This form of regulation caused a depression in steel prices worldwide.

Whatever the regulation, it can have a major impact in CWT across the board.

#10: Natural Disasters

Unpredictable and unstoppable, natural disasters can be devastating. Communities find themselves needing to rebuild buildings, bridges, utilities and more.

In the wake of natural disasters, demand for steel material needed for rebuilding can push prices temporarily higher across the market. These instances are – thankfully – rare, but natural disasters remain a significant factor in determining steel material price.

Despite touching on ten factors that impact steel material pricing, this list is not exhaustive. However, armed with a better understanding of the major players in steel material pricing, you are better equipped to find the right steel material supplier for your project needs.

Raw materials can greatly influence the cost of a given project, making smart sourcing an important step in the process. Steel is a versatile raw material, but the process of finding, buying and transporting steel can be a bit hazy. We developed four must-follow steps for buying steel plate that will ensure you source the right steel at a fair price for every project.

Buying Steel Plate in Bulk Quantities

Step 1: Determine what you need.

While your steel supplier may be very knowledgeable on the variety and types of steel grades, you are ultimately responsible for defining the steel grade, size and quantity needed. This first step is critical to receiving an accurate and thorough quote from a steel supplier.

There are several categories of steel plate products, but the most common include:

Each category of steel contains grades suited for applications in different environments. These differences are often documented with composition, hardness, ductility and strength tests.

Also See: Exploring Structural Steel

Engineers are ultimately responsible for determining which type and grade of steel are best suited to the project at hand, which is why the steel grade needed must be communicated to your steel supplier.

Determine if Alternative Grades Are an Option

Some projects require very specific grades of steel. However, some projects have greater flexibility in the steel grade.

For example, if you need abrasion resistant steel with a hardness of 480 bhn, both AR 450 and AR 500 grades could be options for this project.

Knowing if alternative grades are acceptable for your specific project could give you more buying power in terms of pricing and availability, which we’ll touch on later in this article.

Size and Weight

How to Measure Steel Plate

Next to knowing a project’s required grade(s), knowing the size of your steel plate needs is one of the most basic pieces of information steel suppliers need to quote an order.

Steel plate is purchased in units of Thickness x Width x Length. Steel plate, by definition, has a minimum thickness of 0.1875” - 0.24”. Although width and length can vary greatly, steel plate’s most common dimensions are around 8ft wide by 12ft or 20ft long.

Cutting tables allow many steel plate suppliers to sell steel plate customized to unique length and width dimensions. Thickness, however, cannot be modified.

While there may be small differences, the weight of a plate of steel is generally about the same, regardless of the grade. To calculate the estimated weight of your steel plate order, multiply the quantity of plate by volume and density:

Weight = {[Thickness (mm) x Width (mm) x Length (mm)] x 0.00000785 kg/mm3} x Plate Qty

Or, in pounds and inches:

Weight = {[Thickness (in) x Width (in) x Length (in)] x 0.2836 in/lb3 } x Plate Quantity

Weight = {[0.5 in x 96 in x 240 in] x 0.2836 in/lb3} x 15 plates
= {[11,520] x 0.2836} x 15
= {3,267.072} x 15
= 49,006.08 lbs

The density of steel (0.2836 in/lb3) can range anywhere between 0.28-0.291 lb/in3. The above formula provides a good weight estimate, but your final material weight may vary slightly.

Also See: Leeco Steel’s steel plate weight calculator

Benefits of Buying in Bulk

The price per unit of steel plate decreases when purchasing steel plate in bulk. The term “bulk” means at least enough steel for one truckload, which is typically around 21 tons (42,000 lbs).

In the case of a standard 0.5in x 8ft x 20ft steel plate (like in the weight calculation example above), orders of 12 or more would likely be considered bulk.

Bulk steel plate suppliers – such as Leeco Steel – pass down cost savings from labor and equipment use efficiencies (it takes time, a human and a magnetic crane to load steel plate) onto the per-unit cost of the steel.

While bulk steel plate suppliers specialize in full and partial truckload orders, these suppliers can often be competitive with small or one-off orders, too. Feel free to reach out to the Leeco Steel team – via web form or at (800) 621-4366 – for quoting on your next project.

Step 2: Evaluate Your Timeline

Needing steel this week versus needing steel in three months can greatly impact your steel plate vendor choice and overall price.

Steel plate suppliers have a finite inventory. This inventory could all be housed in one location, or could be spread throughout multiple locations, like we do at Leeco Steel.

If the plate you need is at a location near you, then receiving your steel plate quickly and cost effectively is very doable.

However, if your steel plate requirements are specific and unique (such as requiring uncommon sizes, rare grades or specific country of origin), steel plate suppliers may need to special order the plate directly from a mill. This process could take months.

When evaluating your steel plate supplier, it is important to ask if the product you need is in inventory, and – furthermore – where that inventory is in relation to the delivery destination.

Step 3: Pay Attention to Freight

Transport Bulk Quantities of Steel Plate

Freight is a major factor to the cost and availability of steel plate. Of course, the further the plate needs to travel, the greater the cost and time. Therefore, one of the first freight questions you should ask your steel plate supplier is, "Where is my order coming from?"

Vendors with inventory locations near your final destination may be able to fulfill your order at those locations, thus reducing the time and money spent on transportation. Of course, having a physical inventory location does not always mean the supplier can fulfill the order from that particular location.

The second question you should ask your steel plate supplier is if freight is included in their quote. Leeco Steel, for example, works with a network of freight carriers, and includes the cost of transporting an order domestically in each quote, unless otherwise specified.

If a steel plate supplier does not provide freight solutions, your team will assume responsibilities of coordinating the delivery, so it’s important to clarify this during the quoting process.

Step 4: Partner with Someone You Trust

When it comes to supplying steel plate, company longevity, reputation and trust matter. Here are some good trust indicators to use when evaluating steel suppliers:

Much of this information can be found online, but – ultimately – the relationship you have with your sales representative says a lot about a company. Leeco Steel’s sales team prides itself on being more of an extension of your team, rather than a supplier.

Yes Chemistry Behind Alloy Steel How Adding Elements Changes Steel Properties http://www.leecosteel.com/how-adding-elements-changes-steel.html This article will look at the most common elements comprising the wide range of steel grades and will explore their impact on material properties. Steel is the backbone of modern-day infrastructure and has uses across a wide variety of industries. The ability to manipulate steel’s properties through the addition of other elements is what makes steel such a widely-used resource. This article will look at the most common elements comprising the wide range of steel grades and will explore their impact on material properties.

Iron Alone is Not Enough

Iron in its purest form is neither exceptionally hard nor strong. In fact, a block of pure iron could be cut with a knife. It’s the addition of carbon and the removal of oxygen that gives iron-based steel its incredible strength.

An alloy is defined as a metal made by combining two or more metallic elements. By adding additional metallic and non-metallic elements to iron and carbon, the properties of the material can be manipulated to suit a specific need or application.

Even the manipulation of the amount of carbon combined with iron can affect the material properties. High-carbon steel contains between 0.60% and 0.95% of carbon (as a percentage of weight) and is incredibly hard and strong, but is less ductile and difficult to weld and machine. As carbon is reduced, the material becomes more like pure iron: softer and more ductile.

The maximum carbon content in steel is 2.1%. Anything more than that is not truly classified as steel. As carbon is reduced, the material falls into one of four categories:

#1: Very high carbon steel (0.96%-2.1% carbon)

Produced via a specialized process, very high carbon steel is extremely strong and capable of resisting localized deformation under high tensions (real speak: it’s really, really strong). Consequently, bending, machining or welding this material is nearly impossible.

#2: High carbon steel (0.55%-0.95% carbon)

Used until recently in railroad track applications, high carbon steel is quite strong, but does offer more ductility than very high carbon steels. Other examples of use include cutting and chiseling tools.

#3: Medium carbon steel (0.3%-0.54% carbon)

Used primarily in machine parts (i.e. gears, axels, bolts), medium carbon balances strength and hardness with ductility.

#4: Low carbon steel (0.05%-0.25%)

Compared to other categories of steel, low carbon steel provides incredible strength relative to a lighter weight. Adding alloys can give low carbon steel different properties without greatly impacting weight.

While all categories of steel can use alloys and non-metallic elements to alter properties, this article will focus on how certain elements alter low carbon steel properties.

Elements that Harden

Before looking at elements that harden, let’s first look at the difference between hardening and strengthening.

Steel hardness refers to the level of impact a material can absorb before denting and is usually measured by a Charpy impact test. Temperatures can greatly affect hardness, as material can generally absorb less impact in colder temperatures.

Steel strength, however, focuses on yield point and tensile strength. A yield point is the point in which a material is stressed and deforms (but does not break). Tensile strength is the amount of stress required for the material to fail, or break.

Elements that can harden steel increase the amount of impact a material can absorb. The most common hardening elements are:

These hardening elements are common in quenched and tempered grades (i.e. ASTM A710 or ASTM A514) and offshore grades (i.e. ASTM A633). While nickel is added to carbon steel alloys, it is more common in stainless steel grades.

*Manganese, phosphorus and silicon are the most common elements added to steel. ASTM A36 (a mild steel) and ASTM A572-50 (a high-strength, low-allow steel) are two of the most widely-used grades in North America and contain levels of these three elements.

Elements that Strengthen

Elements that strengthen steel increase the load the material can bear. For this reason, it is common to see these elements in infrastructure, such as bridges, buildings and roads. The most common strengthening elements are:

These strengthening elements are common in high-strength low-alloy grades (i.e. ASTM A572-50 and ASTM A656) and quenched and tempered grades (i.e. ASTM A514).

Elements that Increase Ductility

Ductility is an important factor in projects that require material welding, drilling, bolting or machining. Common elements added to steel alloys that promote ductility include:

These softening elements are common in quenched and tempered grades (i.e. ASTM A514), and are used variously across dozens of others.

Elements that Resist Corrosion

For applications that require resistance to atmospheric conditions, elements that promote corrosion resistance are critical to steel alloys. Common elements used include:

Corrosion resistance is important for structural steel used in outdoor applications, such as bridges, as well as marine or offshore applications.

The Power of Chemistry

The building blocks of steel are simple: iron and carbon. But a wide range of metallic and non-metallic elements can alter the properties and behavior of steel, making it a viable resource for a number of applications.
