Online Information Centre for Stainless Steel in Construction
This resource aims to demonstrate the significant forming potential of stainless steel. The effect of forming on the mechanical properties for each stainless steel family is presented. The most commonly used finishes are then described with reference to EN 10088 Part 2. The article then uses 9 case studies on mechanical parts (pumps, rims, heat exchange plates, etc.) to demonstrate the range of applications stainless steel can be used for - techniques such as hydro-forming, cold rolling, metal spinning, explosion forming and deep drawing are explained.
