Shapes


Shapes are used in various industrial fields, including building, civil engineering, shipbuilding, railroad, steel towers, and general purposes.JFE Steel Corporation develops and manufactures high-quality shapes in large shape mills of the Kurashiki and Fukuyama Districts of the West Japan Works, and in shape mills of the Himeji Works of JFE Bars & Shapes Corporation, which is a group company.
We offer shapes with a wide variety of sizes and steel grades, high accuracy of dimensions and geometry, high functionality, and high efficiency of construction that have been achieved by introducing advanced technologies for shape manufacturing processes, such as Super-OLAC S and rail on-line heat treatment equipment.
