Reasons for Difficulty in Cutting Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is the abbreviation for stainless steel and acid resistant steel. Steel that is resistant to weak corrosive media such as air, steam, water, or has rust resistance is called stainless steel; And the steel that is resistant to chemical corrosion medium corrosion is called acid resistant steel. It has a good production process, but there may be difficulties in cutting during the production process. Below, we will introduce the reasons for the difficulty in cutting:

  1. If the strength of the material itself is relatively high, it will increase the bidirectional resistance during the cutting process and also increase the cutting degree.
  2. During the processing and cutting process, the high elongation of the product results in plastic deformation, which also poses certain difficulties for processing and production.
  3. Stainless steel is prone to expansion, so it generates a large amount of heat during the cutting process, leading to adverse reactions and expansion, which also increases the difficulty of cutting.
  4. A high cutting temperature can affect the production of high heat during the cutting process, but the material has poor thermal conductivity, so all the heat is concentrated in the cutting area and blade, making it difficult to dissipate heat.
  5. The product is hard material with high difficulty in cutting, good plasticity, and toughness. However, when we process it, cutting is not easy to break, but it is easy to stick, leading to cutting, squeezing the stainless steel surface, and excessive tool wear.
    During the production of stainless steel, it is inevitable that the cutting technology may not be good due to errors or other reasons. Therefore, in order to ensure the quality of the processed parts, the staff should first understand the problems that may occur during this process before cutting to ensure its quality. Stainless steel itself has good corrosion resistance, and can still maintain its excellent physical and mechanical properties at high temperatures. It is also widely used in the field of 3D printing.
