Stainless steel is the most demanding material for both customers and manufacturers because of its capabilities and utilization in different kinds of applications. Machining stainless steel has become popular because it comes in different grades and also provides several benefits, features and is also suitable for various applications. To be called stainless steel, it must contain 10% of the chromium which provides stainless steel so many different properties like corrosion resistance and healing itself.
Stainless steel one major quality is that it heals itself after the CNC machining procedure is done. The chromium forms an invisible film over the iron to secure it from air and water, this process is called passivation. If the surface of the stainless steel is scratched it quickly rebuilds itself in the presence of oxygen. This makes the quality of the stainless steel consistent even if scratched during machining. To ensure the highest degree of machinability and dimensional stability most of the quality materials are stress relieved.
Stainless steel is very difficult to machine as compared to other soft metals like aluminum. Stainless steel is an alloy with high strength and good plasticity which makes it harder to machine. During the process of machining, the stainless steel material can become very harder and generate lots of heat which leads to cutting tool wear. And chip breaking is also not easy to break or bend, so this can lead to damaging the surface of the part and lower product quality.
So, the difficulties are:
In short, stainless steel is one of the most difficult materials to machine. If the supplier can machine the copper, aluminum, and carbon steel very well it doesn’t necessarily mean that they can also machine stainless steel efficiently and effectively. So if you are looking to get the accurate and precise stainless steel machined part, DEK should be your priority to look into.
Stainless steel is widely used in different industries in a routine and it has many industrial machining applications. Some of the benefits of stainless steel are mentioned below:
Its strength-to-weight ratio allows it to be machined from thin material which makes popular machining material. Stainless steel can bear extreme temperature and its strength can be improved by cold hardening and heat curing methods to make it fit into applications. Among different stainless steel metallurgical structures, martensitic stainless steel is of the highest strength.
Stainless steel is easily formed, cut, machined, and welded due to its flexibility as compared to other traditional steel. Among other stainless steel austenitic is considered as the most formable and stainless steel’s formability can be increased by adding sulfur. The adaptability and versatility of stainless steel along with our modern manufacturing process make it useful for a variety of applications.
Stainless steel comes in many surface finishes and is many kitchens, home design and them due to its attractive and modern appearance.
Stainless Steel is highly corrosion resistant which makes it useful in multiple applications. Low alloyed grades of steel can resist the atmospheric conditions whereas high alloyed grades of steel are capable of resisting the chloride, acid, and alkaline solution. Austenitic stainless steel grades have a higher amount of chromium boast which makes it more resistant to corrosive environments.
Stainless steel can withstand the extremely harsh environment and high temperature which makes it durable. It is also cost-efficient as compared to other metals. It is preferable in many industries because stainless steel requires low maintenance.
Stainless steel valued characteristics and performance attribute makes the best choice and ideal for different kinds of applications. Automobile exhaust system, grills. Medical equipment like surgical instruments, implantable devices. Kitchen appliances use stainless steel for the rust-free material, cleanliness, and less influence on the taste of the food. Oil and Gas drilling machines use stainless steel to resist extreme heat, acidic conditions, and corrosive environments.
Some of the industries which stainless steel parts are:
There are thousands types of stainless steel alloy that can be produced. Most alloys produced will fall into either one of the three categories mentioned below.
Austenitic stainless steel has two main characteristics. First is there is a lot of chromium included during the manufacturing of austenitic stainless steel. Products produced from this material are more corrosion-resistant. Secondly, the austenitic stainless steel tends to be non-magnetic, although it can become magnetic with a cold forming process. It is the most common type of stainless steel alloy.
This is the second most common type of stainless steel alloy and is also magnetic. This type of stainless steel is less expensive because of its lower nickel content. The materials produced manufactured from this type of stainless steel are hardened through the cold forming process. This type is best known for its formability and is used in applications like appliances, fasteners, axles, and shafts.
It is the least common type of stainless steel alloy and it is used in the application that requires higher tensile strength and a lot of impact resistance. In many cases, to improve the corrosion resistance, this material is also combined with the protective polymer coating. It is brittle in nature which makes it a better option for making bearings, knives, and other wear-resistant applications.
CNC milling machining process is widely used in stainless steel machining around the globe. DEK offers competitive stainless steel CNC milling services with different grades of stainless steel to our customers throughout the world.
This process is also well known in the industries using stainless steel in their manufacturing process. Our quick set tooling, CNC turning capabilities, and highly seasoned engineers ensure your CNC turned parts are produced efficiently and cost-effectively.
Swiss machining is also one of the processes used in stainless steel CNC machining. The Swiss-type machines have a rotating tool that can create cross holes and milled flats. DEK provides swiss-turned parts used in several different industries within a short lead time.
Part of stainless steel materials are removed using the grinding tool embedded in the surface grinding machine. It is also used in finishing the final product of stainless steel. We offer precise and accurate surface grinding services that go with your stainless steel parts.
Stainless steel is the difficult in steel family to grind, especially the austenitic 300 series. It heats up easily and can lose its straightness. DEK provides centerless grinding services for heavy-duty grinding, light grinding, cylindrical and bore grinding for different grades of stainless steel to better fit into your applications
EDM is a process of removing materials from the stainless steel pieces with complex shapes and is widely used in automotive, aerospace, surgical tools, etc. This process is efficient in achieving highly accurate production for stainless steel materials.
Wire EDM technology provides a tight tolerance with a high precision process for creating simple to extremely complex structures and patterns on stainless steel. CNC-controlled cutting patterns can be done on the different grades of stainless steel alloys.
As compared to standard martensitic types some grades of stainless steel require rigorous heat treatment. Heat treating of stainless steel depends upon the type of cast and grade of the stainless steel, also for what reason it is being heat treated. Mostly, heat treatment is used to restore the altered properties (ductility, hardness, and corrosion resistance) during the fabrication process and stainless steel can perform its intended application in the needed environment. There are so many ways of heat treatments. These are:
We say YES absolutely, stainless steel is the best fit for rapid prototyping your product.

Stainless steel is known for a wide variety of industries for its ability to resist corrosion in environments where carbon and low alloy metals would easily corrode. This resistance is a result of a very fine oxide layer film of about 5 nanometers on the steel surface. This oxide layer is known as the passive layer because it makes the surface layer electrochemically passive in a corrosive environment.
The added chromium in the stainless steel creates this passive layer. 10.5% of the chromium is required in the stainless steel to form this passive layer. The more the chromium, the better the passive layer which in turn makes the steel more corrosion resistant. Manganese, nickel, and molybdenum can also be used to enhance the corrosion resistance of stainless steel.
Stainless steel is extremely corrosion resistant but its applications can still have the risks of surface damages. Rusting, corrosion oxidation, and staining can occur while in a long exposure in harsh conditions if there is no routine maintenance and cleaning. Repeated mechanical damages can also cause faster degradation of the metal. Stainless steel must be cleaned on regular basis to maintain its integrity and pristine appearance. With proper care, some of the grades can be saved from corrosion.

Stainless steel can be coated through so many surface finishing techniques depending upon the applications of the material. Some of the coating techniques are:
This type of coating is applied to the surface employing a multi-stage high-tech method that measures only a few micrometers. This process is used to create incomparable surface hardness and black appearance on stainless steel through surface vaporization with diamond-like carbon. The high degree of surface hardness reduces the amount of friction. This process is widely used in watch cases in the luxury watch industry. Although, DLC is also used in sectors like eyeglasses, medical technologies, machinal equipment, cameras, and smartphones.
TiCN has the highest lubrication among all TiN coatings. This process is an excellent choice as a dry film lubricant where hardness and wear resistance is needed. It is normally applied on stainless steel, hardened steel, and other steel materials.
