Stainless Steel – Other

We don’t just laser cut standard stainless steel. We also get asked for the more specialist materials such as duplex and zeron. These are not materials we normally stock but with a bit of effort we can usually get hold of them. Applications include aggressive seawater immersion and particular structural applications. Don’t forget there is also the stainless alternative, Nirosta (also know as 3CR12 and 4003) – this is not really stainless, it sits somewhere between mild steel and stainless with regard to its corrosion resistance and its price.

Max. part size 3000x1500mm
Min. part size Very Small – depends on material thickness
Max. thickness 12mm
Min. Thickness <0.5mm
Min. Detail Detail can be less than the material thickness
Cutting Tolerance Less Than 3mm – +/-0.15mm
3-6mm – +/-0.2mm
8-12mm – +/-0.25mm
Effects of Thermal Cutting The cut edge on thinner sections is smooth and even – the edge quality degrades a little as thickness increases
Common Grades Nirosta, Duplex, Zeron. The surface finishes vary by type and thickness.
