Stainless steel sheets
A variety of sizes and a wide scope, modern metal owes a variety of production technologies and development of modern equipment. Metal, made from stainless steel, is characterized by a large number of products: circles, squares, strips, and stainless steel sheets. Sheet stainless steel is a universal material in the metal, which has its own production technology. Stainless steel sheet has several stages in its manufacture, which are aimed at obtaining the best results: durability, strength, variety of sizes and thicknesses. The most important stage of sheet production is the process of cooling.
Plate mills, which are stainless steel sheets are cooled, moving with the help of roller conveyors, conveyors and chiperov. The mills with the old design is characterized by the cooling of the sheets lying in piles or just on the plates of the shop. In stacks of sheets are cooled by passing heat treatment, called samotyshka. The result of this cool stainless steel sheets can be decrease the precision and fluidity within several kg per 1 mm2, which increases their elongation. Thus, the increased toughness on sheet metal is not changed. This method of cooling of stainless steel sheets often used in the new mills. Stainless steel sheets, which pass the test of toughness, are often subject to accelerated cooling. At the end of the process of this cooling is fixed grain, which is produced by rolling and thus increase the impact strength, it is especially important in sub-zero temperatures. To accelerate cooling, the surface spraying of stainless steel sheets sprayed with water and blown air. Modern plate mills use a roller hardening machine that is behind the finishing Clete, and also hardening of stainless steel sheets, accelerates well and their cooling.
