Stainless steel is one of the most popular choices for building materials. For centuries, stainless steel has been used in architecture, engineering, landscape, indoor and marine construction. Rugged, versatile, and recyclable. Here is a brief overview of stainless steel, its properties, and the advantages you get from it.
The following knowledge points are listed below:
What are stainless steel turning parts
The advantages of using stainless steel turning parts
Turning is a machining process. Turning, like other machining processes, is a material removal process. When turning, part of the original material is removed. The machine that completes this process is called a lathe.
(1) Loading and unloading time: Fix the workpiece in the lathe. This step depends on the size, weight and other characteristics of the workpiece.
(2) Cutting time: The cutting tool performs all necessary cutting to obtain the required workpiece.
(3) Free time: remove materials. Change tools and adjust the machine.
(4) Tool replacement time: The time required to replace a tool that exceeds its service life.
After the process is completed, no treatment is needed to improve performance, because it usually has a good surface finish and very narrow tolerances.
The lathe can also be controlled by a computer. In this case, the lathe is CNC (computer numerical control). The movement of the workpiece and the tool are pre-programmed. This is a very high precision lathe.
Stainless steel could be used for one turning material.
Stainless steel is a low carbon steel and must have at least 10% chromium. The addition of chromium to the steel will form a chromium oxide film, which makes the stainless steel have unique properties, such as corrosion resistance and the ability to self-repair in the presence of oxygen.
There are more than 60 different grades of stainless steel. When exposed to the atmosphere and water, the lower grades work well, while the higher grades are more suitable for exposure to alkaline or acidic solutions.
Perhaps the biggest advantage of using stainless steel is its value. Although the up-front cost of this material is high, it has a longer service life compared to other similar materials. In the long run, this makes stainless steel a more economical choice. As of January 2019, the cost per pound of 30.4 billion stainless steel sheets was US$1.38; the cost of 430 sheets of paper per pound was US$1.03. Other advantages of choosing stainless steel are:
(1) It is durable.
Stainless steel is particularly durable because it has anti-corrosion properties and will not rust or be exposed to contaminants. The percentage of chromium determines the resistance of steel to corrosive environments. The lower percentage is suitable for humid environments, while the higher percentage is suitable for acidic or alkaline environments.
(2) It is 100% recyclable.
As many as 50% of the stainless steel produced in the United States uses recyclable metal materials. Recycled steel uses less energy in refining, purifying and forming parts. The strength of steel will not decrease when recycled.
(3) This is hygienic.
Stainless steel is very hygienic and very suitable for use in hospitals, kitchens or where hygiene is most important.
(4) It is heat resistant.
The high temperature resistance of stainless steel makes it a popular choice for various heat exchangers, boilers, valves and other high heat applications.
It has a high strength-to-weight ratio.
Compared with lower grades of stainless steel and other metals, higher grades of steel have significant strength and weight advantages and can use fewer materials to achieve the same effect.
(5) It is aesthetically pleasing.
Many household appliances feature stainless steel. There is a reason, because stainless steel can add visual pleasure to any space..
