Stainless Steel Stampings

January 31st, 2011

Stainless Steel Stampings provide a high degree of corrosion resistance and a long wearing, brilliant finish.

Because stainless steel offers greater tensile strength than carbon steel, heavier stamping presses are needed in order to effectively form the finished product.  Talan Products operates 22 presses ranging up to 400 ton SSDC, with press bed sizes are up to 105″ x 50″, and press stroke ranges from 2″ to 8″ for stamping even the most difficult stainless steel materials.  Our equipment, combined with a highly skilled work force, and ISO 9001 quality standards, take your stainless steel stamping from the drawing board to completion on time and on budget.  Best of all, stainless steel stampings can be produced in a wide variety of grades and surface finishes suiting your specifications.

Physical properties of Stainless Steel

Stainless steel (also known as corrosion resistant steel or CRES) is defined as a steel alloy with a minimum of 10.5 or 11% chromium content by mass.  Stainless steel offers better corrosion resistance than carbon steel, but it is not stain-proof.  There are different grades and surface finishes of stainless steel to suit the environment the alloy must endure. Stainless steel is used where both the properties of steel and resistance to corrosion are required.

Stainless steel differs from carbon steel by the amount of chromium present. Unprotected carbon steel rusts readily when exposed to air and moisture. This iron oxide film (also known as rust) is active and accelerates corrosion by forming more iron oxide. Stainless steels contain sufficient chromium to form a passive film of chromium oxide, which prevents further surface corrosion and blocks corrosion from spreading into the metal’s internal structure.

Stampings From Austenitic / 300 Series Stainless Steel

Austenitic Stainless Steel (300 series) is used for the vast majority of stainless steel stamping projects.  3oo series stainless steels are non-magnetic, and possess high ductility, low yield stress and relatively high ultimate tensile strength when compared to carbon grade steels.  Austenitic stainless steel also offers corrosion resistance in the atmosphere, in many aqueous media, in the presence of foods, and in oxidizing acids such as nitric acid. Non-magnetic properties combined with exceptional durability at a wide range of temperatures make 300 series stainless steels an excellent selection for a wide variety of applications.  The most common austenitic steel is Type 304 (also known as T304, 304, and 18/8 which describes the composition of 18% chromium and 8% nickel).  The second most common form of austenitic steel, Type 316 stainless is used widely for food, surgical and medical, and pharmaceutical applications.

Stainless Steel Applications

Stainless steel’s resistance to corrosion and staining, ease of care, and brilliant, shiny appearance make it an ideal material for many applications, including:

  • Appliances
  • Automotive
  • Cookware and Food Grade Applications
  • Medical and Surgical
