CNC parts made of stainless steel offer various advantages over conventional steel. Stainless steel is wear-resistant, temperature-resistant, corrosion-resistant and hygienic. Smallest precision parts can be realized as well as complex geometries with cavities, drillings etc. We can machine bars and profiles on up to 4 axes.
The machining of stainless steel requires a high degree of competence, experience and tact. Some types of stainless steel have an increased mechanical stability. Here it is necessary to pay attention to the heat generation resp.
When machining stainless steel, the smallest setting angles are used. This avoids heavy burr formation. When high cutting forces occur, we use tool geometries with optimum cutting edge stability. When milling stainless steel, similar problems can occur as with stainless steel turned parts. For milling we use stainless steel alloys with suitable mechanical stability, resistant cutting tools as well as special cooling fluids.
In order to meet the highest requirements for precision and surface quality, a well thought-out production structure is required. In recent years, we have constantly optimized our processes. We start with lot sizes as small as 500 pieces. This benefits from the higher flexibility and shorter set-up times of our systems.
We continuously invest in modern peripherals, such as an automatic tool store, which takes care of tool supply by means of barcodes. We also have a PPS system including CAQ, BDE/MDE and DNC, which supplies all machines with the required programs.
The machines are - next to our employees - the most important element of our production. Only if they are efficient as well as highly available and still bring their precision after years, they have a place in our production. We work in three shifts, so there is no time for machine downtime.
