Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel is a family of iron-based alloys that contain a minimum of approximately 11% chromium, a composition that prevents the iron from rusting as well as providing heat resistant properties.

1.Can stainless steel be CNC machined?
Stainless steel is very suitable for CNC machining, with a tolerance of 0.02m, suitable for CNC milling and CNC turning.

2.Is 304 stainless hard to machine?
The main reason for the difficulty of machining 304 stainless steel is the high content of chromium and nickel. In terms of CNC machining capabilities, CNC machining of 304 stainless steel is no longer a problem.

3.Is 304 or 316 easier to machine?
304 is easier to machine than 316 stainless, 304 stainless is not only easier to machine but also easier to clean, which is one of the reasons why it comes in so many different finishes.
