Sanmac® stainless steels for machining
Sanmac® stainless steels are stainless steels with superior machining properties. The new generation of Sanmac® stainless steels present even better opportunities to reduce tool wear and increase cutting speeds, improving productivity and significantly reducing cost per produced item.
In Sanmac® materials, machinability has been improved without jeopardizing properties such as corrosion resistance and mechanical strength. The non-metallic inclusions in Sanmac® steels are of great significance to the improved machinability. In addition to sulphides, Sanmac® steels contain oxide inclusions that improve chip breaking and reduce tool wear.
