Weighing of important qualities is considered in the selection of perfect


material to use in order to produce the best products like stainless steel
bars, medical bars, etc.
As we all know, stainless steels are manufacturing materials
that have good strength, corrosion-resistance, and
fabrication resistance. These materials can always meet a
vast range of design standards and this includes service life,
load, and low maintenance. Thus, choosing or selecting the
right stainless steel types and grades needs thorough
weighing of four qualities in important order:
A. Heat or Corrosion Resistance
This is the basic reason to consider for specifying stainless
steel products. There is a need to have knowledge about the
nature of stainless steel environment and the level of
required resistance to heat or corrosion of every stainless
steel material.
B. Mechanical Properties
The basis for steel selection is the combination of strength and corrosion resistance. This quality
involves particularly elevated or low temperature and strength at room.
C. Manufacturing Operations
This focuses on the operations on how the product will be made like these following examples:
machining, grinding, welding, chamfering, forging, stamping, roll forming, four-slide operations. The
quality of a certain steel product really depends on the specific processes that the steel materials
undergo to reach hardness, accuracy, and perfect roundness. Among the most sought mechanical
operations now is the centerless grinding that is proven to produce accurate roundness.
D. Whole Cost
Considering the expenses of production and material as well as the increasing savings of product
with durability but maintenance-free.
Well, the selection of the particular steel particularly depends on what is required on a particular
application. If there is an urge to create stainless steel bars, then more likely austenitic steel types
should be used. On the other hand, medical steel bars are much more available in martensitic types of

steels. The environment of a certain stainless steel product including the chemical processes in which
the steel is formed and what will also determine its features like resistance to corrosion and heat will
help determine what type of stainless steel material to use. Aside from those important qualities that
have to be considered, there are also other factors that need to be taken into account.
1. Required Strength Austenitic, martensitic, duplex, and PH steels can obtain higher strengths.
Strengths may differ according to the series of processes the materials that undergo. For example,
forming and welding processes oftentimes influence what material and grade should be the most
suitable.
2. Operations Temperature Corrosion rates are usually accelerated by high temperatures. Thus, it
signifies a higher grade. Well, mostly low temperatures require hard austenitic steel.
3. Required Product Form Not all grades can be obtainable in all product sizes and forms like
sheet, tube, and bar. Moreover, austenitic steels can offer wide range of dimensions that all product
forms can be formed out from it. So mostly stainless steel bars are created from austenitic type of
stainless steel.
Well, steel products forms and sizes may differ according to the type of steel used. Austenitic for
example, as what has been mentioned, can be perfect for creating stainless steel bars. The certain
types of steels undergo various cooling and hardening processes which result to different
characteristics in each material.
Almost all stainless steel have good weldability. Therefore, it needs to be taken into account that joint
forces and any filler metal should be kept form contaminations like oxide and organic material.
In selecting welding filler materials for stainless steel, a principal concern in matching the major
properties of the base metal is considered. Moreover, for duplex and nominally austenitic stainless
steel, there should be some control over the ferrite content of the weld metal.
To sum it up, it is not just the type or grade of stainless steel that has to be taken into account, but as
well as the environment, the operations, and all for these will greatly affect the quality of the product.
Quality is always sought in very product and purchase.
