Precision stainless steel strips are a kind of stainless steel strips with high precision and high surface quality. It is processed by advanced production processes and equipment with high dimensional accuracy and surface flatness to meet the high requirements of the precision processing and forming process.
Precision stainless steel strips are usually made of stainless steel strips (such as 301, 304, 316, etc.) as raw materials and processed through multiple cold rolling, annealing, drawing, and grinding processes. It has high corrosion resistance, mechanical strength, and weldability, and can be used in a wide range of applications, such as electronics, optoelectronics, instrumentation, medical devices, aerospace, etc.
The size and thickness of precision stainless steel strips can usually be customized to meet a variety of different application requirements. Also, stainless steel precision stainless steel strips can be customized by surface treatment, such as grinding, polishing, silver plating, electroplating, etc., to further improve its surface finish and aesthetics.
Edges of Precision Stainless Steel Strips
Precision stainless steel strips can come in a variety of edges and finishes depending on the specific application requirements. Here’s an explanation of the different types of edges:
In the context of metal precision stainless steel strips, an “edge” refers to the side or edge of the strip. This can refer to the finish of the edge, such as whether it is sharp or rounded, or it can refer to the actual physical location of the edge on the strip. The edge of the strip can have an impact on the strip’s performance and suitability for certain applications. Different edge finishes, such as square edge, round edge, or slitting edge, can be chosen based on the specific requirements of the application. Additionally, the edge quality can impact the strip’s ability to be formed, bent, or welded, so it is an important consideration in the manufacturing and processing of metal strips.

Production Process of Precision Stainless Steel Strips
Stainless steel coils are obtained from suppliers, selected, and purchased according to production requirements. In the next production process, the coils need to be processed such as flattening, cutting, and curling in order to produce precision stainless steel strips that meet the requirements.
After processing treatment such as flattening and cutting, the coils are processed into cold rolling mill or hot rolling mill to become strips, and then go through heat treatment processes such as quenching and annealing to improve the properties such as hardness and toughness of the strips.
After the strip is cold rolled or hot rolled, its surface will produce certain oxidation layers and pollutants. Therefore, surface treatment processes such as pickling, passivation, and sandblasting are required to achieve a clean, flat, and smooth surface.
The qualified precision stainless steel strips are packaged according to the customer’s requirements to prevent damage in the transportation process. Common packaging methods include the tray, shaft, bare, plastic bag, etc.
The produced precision stainless steel strips are strictly inspected to check whether their dimensional accuracy, surface quality, hardness, and other performance indicators meet the requirements.
According to the customer’s demand, the processed strips are cut into precision stainless steel strips of specified lengths, which can be cut by a shearing machine, laser cutting machine, EDM cutting machine, and other cutting methods.
Features of Precision Stainless Steel Strips
The dimensional accuracy of precision stainless steel strips can reach ±0.01mm, while the surface quality can reach Ra0.1um or more, so it has excellent performance in precision processing and high precision applications.
Precision stainless steel strips undergoes multiple cold rolling and heat treatment during the production process, which provides excellent strength and toughness, as well as good bending and resilience performance.
Precision stainless steel strips are mainly made of stainless steel material, so it has good corrosion resistance and can resist oxidation, corrosion and chemical substances such as acid and alkali.
Precision stainless steel strips have good plasticity and processability, and can be cut, stamped, bent and other processing methods according to customer needs.
The surface of precision stainless steel strips can be treated in various ways, such as polishing, pickling, galvanizing, etc., to meet the needs of different customers.
