Stainless Steel Slitting at Rolled Steel Products in Los Angeles
STAINLESS STEEL SLITTING
At Rolled Steel Products, our job is more than slitting stainless steel and shipping stainless steel coils, our job is to meet all of your stainless steel requirements from order entry to delivery, and everything in between.
If you require stainless strip, we have several possible options to choose from. Our Loopco and Stamco precision slitters can slit up to 52 inches wide, run approximately 1000 FPM, slit up to 30 cuts at a time, and keep within .002 to .003 width tolerance. Rolled Steel Products carries a wide range of finishes and types in both 300 and 400 series stainless steel sheet and coil.
304 STAINLESS STEEL
Type 304 (UNS S30400) is the most widely used of the austenitic chromium-nickel stainless steels.Its carbon content is lower and its corrosion resistance somewhat higher than Type 302. In the annealed condition, Type 304 is essentially nonmagnetic and becomes slightly magnetic when cold worked. In the lower carbon Type 304L material, carbide precipitation as a result of welding will be minimized, resulting in less susceptibility to intergranular corrosion.
430 STAINLESS STEEL
Type 430 is ductile, has good forming characteristic and is readily fabricated by such operations as bending, pressing, drawing and heading. Its tendency to work harden is much less than that of the nickel-bearing 300 series stainless steel. Type 430 does not have as good corrosion resisting properties as the chromium nickel steels. However, it is suitable for interior architectural and decorative household appliances trim as well as automotive body molding. Cold rolled Type 430 has an attractive bright finish which can be maintained with reasonable care and periodic cleaning. Type 430 is by far the most popular of all straight chromium stainless steels. It is the general purpose alloy of the ferritic class. This type contains approximately 17 percent chromium and is often referred as 17 chrome stainless. The higher chromium content imparts improved resistance of Type 430 is slightly less than carbon steel, but its thermal conductivity is one half that of carbon steel. Chromium stainless steel is magnetic.
