How to choose the tool when processing stainless steel sheet

by:Topson     2022-09-16

Stainless steel is a very hard material that requires special stainless steel sheet processing techniques and knives. Stainless steel is used in sheet metal, decorative siding and decorative pipes for items such as furniture frames, closet rods and handrails. It is a hard metal. While it can be used for coating, most machining must be cut first. How to choose tools when machining stainless steel sheet? ? How much do you know about this issue? Now I'm going to tell you something about this issue. I hope it helps you.

1. Circular saw

A handheld circular saw is a tool for cutting large stainless steel sheets. There are two basic types of metal cutting blades. Less expensive are sharpening knives or cutting wheels. It is made of sand and gravel with fibers bonded together by blades.

The cutting capacity of these blades is limited, so they cannot cut very accurately. Special steel blades with thin cuts and specially shaped teeth, with diamond or carbon coating, are suitable for cutting with high cutting edge requirements, are faster and last longer than abrasive blades.

2. Power scissors

A power shear is a handy tool for making fine cuts like curved cuts. When using stainless steel, the main problem is friction. Stainless steel is heated rapidly, and the heat transferred to the blade can soften and break it.

The fine-toothed tungsten carbide steel blade that does not respond quickly to heat is selected to make the saw blade run at a low speed and greatly reduce the friction heating effect.

3. Band saw

Cutting band saws are used to cut pipes and square stainless steel. Unlike woodworking band saws, cutters cut on a horizontal bed, with the blade going down through the material. Some old metal band saws are vertical, some are for wood or metal.

The stainless steel blade has a tooth profile similar to a jig saw blade and is made of tungsten carbide. Whether using a metal cutting band saw or a utility saw, the speed can be set very low for a smooth cut.

4. Hand tools

The hand-held rotary tool cuts a variety of materials using the cut-off wheel attachment. Rotary knives with glass fiber reinforced cut-off wheel attachment for cutting hardened steel. Before cutting, turn on the saw to reach full parameters, lower the saw to the surface, and run the saw slowly through the stainless steel until the cut is complete.
