Structural Shapes

Leading the New Era on Structural Shapes with Pioneer Spirits.

We, Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal, since the dawn of the Japanese steel industry,when we started producing Japan's first railroad rails in 1901, and through the nation's reconstruction period after World War II, have been the sole producer of rails and sheet piles in Japan and have contributed to the development of the Japanese economy. Based on our technological advantages and credibility, which were built-up during this process, we pioneered the production and sale of Japan's first rolled wide flanges and, with our half a century of technological innovation, have been responding to a wide variety of customers needs both in Japan and across the globe.

We have also produced and marketed: structural H-shapes with incremental depth and width of 50mm pitch(NSHYPER BEAMTM, 1989); structural H-shapes with fire-resistance(NSFRTM steel, 1990); and other innovative products that span the history of construction in Japan. Working together with end users, we have also endeavored to spread the use of steel structures in building construction and promoted the use of structural H-shapes as well as developed key technologies in design, fabrication and construction fields.

Not resting on our laurels gained through history and experience, we have determined to lead the new era with pioneer spirits and express the hope that Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal's structural H-shapes will continue to enjoy your company's patronage

Features of NSHYPER BEAM™

Depth and Width with 50mm Incremental Unit
  • Increased depth and width by 50mm (app. 2 inch) pitch
Rolled H-shapes to be replaced Built-up H-shapes
  • Advantages on saving labor force and fabrication term as well as higher quality due to elimination of welding operations
Uniform Depth and Width within a Same Size Series
  • The world’s first rolled wide-flange beams with uniform depth and width in a same size series
Wider Size Availabilities (47 series and 609 sizes)*
  • Helping structural design optimize for less steel weight and better cost performance

* Regular sizes: 42 series, 302 sizes, Available sizes: 5 series, 307 sizes

Experience for more than 25 years in Japan
  • Popular H-shapes in steel structures covering building and factory as well as onshore & offshore plant fields
Standard sectional dimensions of JIS G 3192
  • Registered with standard sectional dimensions of JIS G 3192

Production Process (Case of Sakai steelworks)

① Edge rolling mill(variable caliber depth of upper and lower rolls)
Meeting the need for widely ranging web thicknesses by varying upper and lower roll positions to produce fixed widths
② Skewed roll rolling mill
Flexible control of depth using skew rolls
③ Finish rolling mill
Provision of wide-ranging flange thicknesses by controlling the depth to a fixed level and changing upper/lower roll-body widths

Sakai steelworks, rolling freely to achieve due to size by variable-width rolls and skew-roll rolling, a first-of-its-kind rolling, has established the manufacturing technology of the "hyper beam". Kashima steelworks, rolling to an intermediate group, to apply the variable-width roll, rolling freely size has been achieved.
