304L Stainless Steel Pipes has good machinability, and therefore machining can be improved by applying the following rules: Cutting edges must be kept sharp. Manufactured components must be cooled quickly to ensure maximum corrosion resistance. Blunt cutting edges cause excessive work hardening. The cuts should be light but deep enough to prevent strain hardening on the material surface, where chip breakers should be used to ensure chips remain clear of the work. The low thermal conductivity of austenitic Stainless Steel UNS S30403 Pipes leads to heat concentration at the cutting edges. This means that coolants and lubricants are necessary and must be used in large quantities. Solution treatment or annealing can be done by quenching and post heating at 1010°C – 1120°C.
We as Siddhgiri Tubes is an acknowledged exporter of SS 304L Pipes, which hardens easily and cannot be hardened by heat treatment. The manufacture of these stainless steels should only be done with tools intended for steel materials. These precautions are necessary to avoid contamination of Stainless Steel WNR 1.4306 Pipes by easily corrosive metals that can stain the surface of the manufactured product. Manufacturing processes that involve cold working may require an intermediate annealing step to facilitate the work prevent hardening and cracking or tearing. After fabrication is complete, a full anneal should be performed to reduce internal stresses and optimize corrosion resistance. Manufacturing processes such as forging, which involve hot working, must be done after uniform heating to 1149 °C – 1260 °C.
