The steel plate is an advanced material made by smelting iron plates again. It is used in many advanced recipes, including electrical distribution logistics, military items, and upgraded production machines. Some of these products in turn are used in the Production science pack, which requires a total of 25 steel plates.

Because the recipe for steel contains a ratio of 5 iron : 1 steel, it requires less space to transport once processed. Because of this, it is easier to transport the finished steel instead of smelting the steel where it needs to be used.
