Machining Stainless Steel Materials & Grades

Precision parts and components are manufactured from all stainless steel grades, including 300 Series, 400 Series, high nickel-content stainless steels, and exotic stainless steel alloys. Certain alloys, such as 300 Series stainless steel, are generally more challenging to work with than others due to work hardening. To meet these challenges, Petersen Precision can fabricate parts and components from all stainless steel grades with equal precision.

For more information on precision stainless steel machining services in any grade, get in touch with our sales team or call us at 650-365-4373, and we will gladly speak with you regarding your project’s exact specifications. With over 30 years experience in stainless steel manufacturing, Petersen Precision is your trusted industry expert.

Stainless Steel Material Advantages

Stainless steel is a standard alloy comprised primarily of steel and chromium, and other metals, including nickel. Stainless steel is best known for its natural corrosion resistance, which increases with chromium content. Beneficial properties of stainless steel include:

  • Corrosion resistance
  • High heat resistance
  • High strength
  • Easy to fabricate
  • High impact resistance
  • Available in FDA/USDA-approved and medical grades
