The recipe for a perfect stainless-steel processing, according to experts from BP Engineering
In order to avoid potential difficulties arising from the machining of stainless steel, we benefit from the expertise of engineers and machine operators who take care of the machining process. Their invaluable contribution helps to meet the challenges of our daily tasks. With the right machinery and specialised staff known for its qualifications, expertise, and many years of experience, we offer a range of services to ensure that our customers receive parts of the desired properties, dimensions, and shape. Working to order, we are able to perform both stainless steel machining and other equally advanced working techniques.
Stainless Steel Machining and its specifics
The lack of skilled personnel and appropriate equipment can pose a serious challenge in processing stainless steel. Its property, namely lower thermal conductivity and susceptibility to hardening, poses another major problem. Similarly, additional substances in the alloy might be a considerable difficulty when machining the material. At BP Engineering, we apply numerous solutions to guarantee that these complications do not affect the quality of our services. The selection of specialised tools and high-quality solutions, such as cooling and high-class lubricants, promises a remarkable outcome.
Corrosion during the machining of stainless steel - can you avoid it?
Chrome contained in stainless steel reacts with the oxygen in the air to protect the metal against corrosion without any additional protection. Only appropriate cleanliness guarantees the regeneration of the chromium oxide layer on the steel surface after any damage has been done to the raw material. That is why, in BP Engineering, we use appropriate tools and materials, especially during surface grinding, and further thoroughly clean the workpiece from all residues. We make every effort to protect the processed elements from damage without exposing them to harmful substances. Additionally, while performing the mechanical processing of stainless steel, we do not forget to be always cautious not to reuse the same tools while treating other steel grades.
