STAINLESS STEEL IS NOT ALWAYS STAINLESS STEEL
It depends on the alloy in question. The characteristics of the respective alloy can make a big difference in the machining of stainless steel. We know about these differences and apply the right machining process to achieve the specific characteristics of the stainless steel required by your components.
Stainless steel is usually used when components have to be durable, stable and have an immaculate finish, for example, in medical engineering, in optoelectronics and sensor technology. These are just a few selected examples of our work. Click on the arrows in the pictures to see the applications.
PRECISION IN THE MICROMETRE RANGE
When turning stainless steel it is necessary to observe the alloy content, adjustment angle, geometry and cutting edge stability of the tool in order to achieve the best possible surface finish quality of the turned part. During the production process, these influencing factors are continually checked and if necessary adjusted by our experts to improve the result.
KSP stands for precision in the micrometre range (from 0.001 mm) and parts with an immaculate finish.
In order to meet these requirements, we use microscopes fitted directly to the production machines. For fine finishing we use a number of processes such as barrel finishing, brushing or polishing. In particular, the gloss of the ground and polished stainless steel components represents the high quality which is an important quality characteristic for many of our customers.
We machine all rust-free steel alloys including 1.4301, 1.4305, 1.4307, 1.4404, 1.4112, etc.
