  • What's the heat treatment process of stainless steel sheet?
    Jan 22, 2019

    Heat treatment of stainless steel sheet is an indispensable process in the manufacture of stainless steel sheet, which is used to change its physical and mechanical properties without changing its shape. Although there are many kinds of heat treatment of stainless steel sheet, the two most important heat treatment methods are annealing and tempering. 

    Annealing means heating steel to a specified temperature and then cooling it at a very slow and controllable rate. Annealing is used for softening and cooling of stainless steel sheet to improve machinability and electrical conductivity. Annealing can also restore ductility. In cold working process, stainless steel sheet can harden to the extent of cracking. 

    By annealing stainless steel sheet in advance, cold working can be carried out without the risk of cracking. Annealing releases the mechanical stress produced in the process of processing or grinding.
