Stainless Steel Fabrication Service
Such services are used in countless industries and can for various accomplishments. If you’re in need of such solutions, here’s everything you need to know about stainless steel fabrication.
What Is Stainless Steel Fabrication?
In short, it is creating parts or components through manipulating the shape of stainless steel. There are numerous ways to do this, whether its through using laser machines, punching perforations and bending the material or even welding it.
As a result, our service can offer stainless steel sheet metal fabrication, as well as any other parts or shapes that you might require.
What are the benefits of Stainless Steel Fabrication?
The benefits of fabrication is that it allows for exact, custom components. We can shape metals to custom specifications with the end result a unique piece made exactly how you need it. This can then be used to support your own products, projects or construction work.
Likewise, stainless steel itself is a popular material due to its many benefits. It is also a rather durable material, allowing for lightweight designs, when compared with other metals.
Of course, when it comes to stainless steel, there are also different types that you need to consider. We specialise in both 304 and 316 steel. The former – which is mixed with 18% chromium and 8% nickel – is chosen for its durability, alongside its high resistance to both corrosion and oxidisation. For the latter, – mixed with 16% chromium, 10% nickel and 2% molybdenum – is more heat resistant and often used in oil equipment as a result, as well as its higher corrosion resistance.
Whichever type you choose, stainless steel allows for the creation of highly precise, sophisticated components that can make the most of the material’s advantages.
Why Do People Need Stainless Steel Fabrication?
Stainless steel is used in a variety of industries and, consequently, there are numerous companies that require stainless steel fabrication, with engineering being a very clear example. It is also used highly in architecture, where each new building may require custom steel structures.
Similarly, many manufacturing and production facilities, for example, require specific components in unique machinery used. There are many situations where airtight connections, or components that fit flush with the rest of the design, are required. Any deviations, even by millimetres, can cause issues with the wider equipment, so exact parts are needed. Consequently, these pieces aren’t available in store and must be custom produced by trustworthy experts.
Such parts are even used in the petro chemical and food sectors; two industries where precise components are readily required. In addition to being easy to clean and keep hygienic, stainless steel is often appreciated because it resists heat damage and is easy to maintain, ensuring the longevity of machinery it is used in.
Why Should You Use Grenville Engineering?
As mentioned above, fabricated parts are often used when precise, exact measurements are vital. This, in turn, means you need expert fabricators who can be trusted to deliver your specific requirements again and again.
Grenville Engineering has been fabricating metal for over 30 years, with extensive experience with stainless steel. Using our wide range of sophisticated technology and equipment, we operate across a range of methods, including laser cutting, punching, metal forming, rolling, and even precision machining, so we can always recommend and utilise the best methods for each project.
On site we have 2 Trumpf laser machines and recently a Bystronic Fiber laser which provides precision cutting technology ensuring that parts are cut to customer specification.
