Metal Manufacturing for Agriculture Equipment
The manufacturing industry is fundamentally tied to the agricultural sector, from feeding pails and milking machines to tractors and silos.
There's no singular grade of material that is right for every agriculture machinery application, but common steel products used to manufacture components for the sector include:
- Hot–Rolled Pickled & Oiled Steel - Pickling and oiling hot-rolled steel offer improved durability and workability while lowering costs. It also provides a cleaner surface, making the material suitable for painting.
- Hot–Rolled Steel- Hot rolled steel sheets and coils are basic carbon steel products commonly used for applications in which dimensional tolerances and surface finish quality are not critical.
- Hot Dipped Galvanized Steel - Hot-Dip Galvanizing is a process of coating steel with a thin zinc layer, which serves as a barrier between the steel and the environment. The finish is applied by passing the steel through a molten zinc bath at a high temperature. Galvanized steel is well suited for applications that need corrosion-resistant materials at a competitive price and easily integrates with other materials.
With a steel service center, like Alliance Steel, agricultural original equipment manufacturers and their supply chain partners can supply quality products on time and maximize productivity.
Importance Of Steel to the Agriculture Industry
When it comes to farm machinery and product manufacturing, no material is more widely utilized than steel. Steel is strong, lightweight, formable, and capable of withstanding exposure to moisture, dirt, and chemicals when supplied in the proper condition.
Farmers and ranchers have the critical task of delivering healthy and nutritious food products to store shelves worldwide. From seeders to silos to tractor parts, the metal manufacturing industry is intertwined to the agricultural industry. When people look at vegetables, fruits, meats, milk, and juices, they don’t see the equipment that gets the product to the market.
