Here are the basic steps on how to manufacture one piece of stainless steel winding strip.
Raw Material Melting
All the stainless steel winding strip materials are put inside a furnace and heated to their melting point.
Excess Carbon Removal
The material that has been molten is thereafter placed into the argon oxygen decarburization or the vacuum oxygen decarburization where excess carbon is removed. Depending on the amount of carbon removed, this procedure can lead to either a low carbon or standard alloy variant.
Stirring or Tuning
To assist with fine tuning the final product quality, stainless steel that has been molten is stirred to ensure removal and distribution of particular stainless steel winding strip components. This ensures the product is of uniform quality and achieves minimum requirements.
When the stainless steel strips start cooling, they are taken through the forming process. Hot rolling ensures the steel is converted to rough shape. It is very popular in manufacturing of metal blooms and billets.
Annealing refers to heat treatment and it helps in reliving stresses and changes the mechanical properties of the stainless steel strip.
Shaping and Cutting
The annealed stainless steel winding strip is then subjected through shaping and cutting to help come up with the desired final product. The methods used in cutting and shaping will be determined by the shape and size of the desired final product.
Application of Surface Finish
Different surface finishes can be applied to the stainless steel winding strip before they are shipped to the customers. The type of finish applied will depend on the intended use of the stainless steel winding strip.
