What is Stainless Steel?

An alloy iron, stainless steel contains a minimum of 10.5% Chromium. Producing a thin layer of oxide on the surface of the steel, the Chromium helps to create what is known as the ‘passive layer’, which helps to prevent corrosion on the surface. If the Chromium is increased, the more resistant the steel will be.

Making it extremely durable, this is what makes stainless steel popular in the process of metal fabrication.

What is Stainless Steel Fabrication?

Much like other forms of metal fabrication, stainless steel fabrication is the process of bending and cutting the steel into a usable structure. This isn’t to be confused with welding, as fabrication is the process of making the product from a metal material, while welding only occurs once the product is complete.

While there are many grades of stainless steel, all can be fabricated. However, austenitic grades are the most popular and easiest to fabricate as they can be deep drawn, hot forged, cold-forged, folded, roll-formed and spun.

Stainless steel fabrication processes include:

  • Forming
  • Machining
  • Work Hardening
  • Laser cutting
  • Machining
  • Punching
  • Welding
  • Soft Soldering
  • Silver Soldering (Brazing)

 

Durable, efficient and hygienic, stainless steel fabricated products are popular in the medical and food industries, but are used in many others, such as within architectural projects.
