Two common methods for cutting stainless steel sheet are shear cutting and laser cutting. Among the benefits of laser cutting is that it creates a small heat-affected zone, which means minimal part distortion. Our stainless steel sheet selection includes a number of grades, cuts, sizes, and finishes that can be customized for the job at hand. View more about stainless steel.

How to grind stainless steel plate?
Always start grinding with a pullback motion instead of a push to reduce the chance of gouging this expensive material. Flap discs are another popular choice for working with stainless steel, because they grind and finish the workpiece in a single step.
How to bend stainless steel sheet?
The thinner the sheet, the easier it is to bend. Thin sheets can be bent by hand, while thicker sheets will require a bending tool.
Stainless steel plates have some obvious features when bending:
⒈Stainless steel is inferior to ordinary low carbon steel due to its thermal conductivity, and its elongation is low, resulting in a large deformation force;
⒉Stainless steel sheets have a strong tendency to rebound when bent compared to carbon steel;
⒊Due to the low elongation of the stainless steel plate, the bending angle R of the workpiece during bending is greater than that of carbon steel, otherwise, there may be cracks;
⒋Due to the high hardness of the SUS304 stainless steel plate, the cold work hardening effect is remarkable. Therefore, when selecting the bending tool, the tool steel with heat treatment hardness of 60HRC or more should be selected, and the surface roughness should be one order of magnitude higher than that of the carbon steel bending tool.
In combination with the characteristics of the above stainless steel, for the general bending:
⒈Under the unit size, the thicker the sheet, the greater the bending force required, and the margin of bending force should be larger when the bending equipment is selected as the thickness increases;
⒉Under the unit size, the greater the tensile strength, the smaller the elongation, the greater the bending force required, and the larger the bending angle should be;
⒊According to the experience, the unfolding dimension of a curved workpiece is equal to the right angle and the two plate thicknesses can be added to meet the design accuracy requirements. The calculation of the expansion amount according to the empirical formula can simplify the calculation. The process greatly improves production efficiency;
⒋The greater the yield strength of the material, the greater the elasticity and the amount of recovery. To obtain the angle of 90 degrees of the bending member, the angle of the required pressing knife should be designed to be smaller. Compared with the same thickness of carbon steel, stainless steel has a large bending angle. This should pay special attention to the occurrence of crushing cracks and affect the strength of the workpiece.
how to cut stainless steel sheet metal?
Stainless steel comes in a wide variety of forms and gauge. In most cases, the gauge of stainless steel determines its thickness. The tools you need to cut stainless steel depending on how thick your steel is. Here are some tools required.
Watch Out for Overheating
As is true of all metals, cutting stainless steel can actually alter the atomic composition of the metal, resulting in changes to its appearance and performance. Welders have to be particularly careful when working with stainless to prevent overheating and problems related to contaminants.
