Stainless Steel Machining
Expert Applications for Machining Stainless Steel
Stainless steel machining is a critical process used to cut bars, plates or sheets into precise shapes for numerous industries such as shipping, retail, paper, food packaging, automotive, and aeronautics. Machining can be accomplished through the use of CADCAM software programming CNC machines to create complex parts or even manually if only simple shapes are required.
For complex shapes and projects, we use GibbsCAM to create efficient programs for our machines. All employees are highly-trained, have the necessary certifications and credentials, and undergo continuous cross-training on both equipment and software. This ensures that despite the difficulties of machining stainless steel, we are able to handle whatever is thrown our way.
Difficulties of Stainless Steel Machining
Stainless steel can be difficult to machine. It has a very low machinability rating as compared to many other materials. It can be hard on tooling and machines if not handled properly. For instance, if the speed of a drill is too fast, it can destroy the tip of the drill and work harden the material in front of it. This makes it even more difficult and sometimes impossible to drill the rest of your hole. That will make for a really bad day. That’s why when choosing a shop to take care of your stainless steel machining needs, you need someone that has the tools and experience to handle it correctly. JBC Machine has been manufacturing quality parts from stainless steel for over 30 years. We have experience with many different grades of stainless steel including 303, 304, 316, 321, 410, 416, 420, 431, 440C, 15-5PH, 17-4PH & 2205 Duplex.
