Stainless steel decorative pipes are usually 6 meters long. However, 6-meter-long stainless steel pipes are used after cutting in actual use, so there is a cutting problem for stainless steel pipes. How to cut a steel tube? What are the processing methods for stainless steel pipe cutting? Let's take a look together!
There are many kinds of stainless steel pipe cutting processing methods. The most common ones are grinding wheel cutting, circular saw cutting, automatic machine cutting, laser cutting, etc. So, which way is better for stainless steel pipe cutting? Today I have sorted out the characteristics of these stainless steel pipe cutting methods, and I hope they will be helpful to you.
1. For stainless steel pipes that are not demanding but economical, they are generally cut with ordinary grinders. The disadvantage of this method is that the cutting burrs are relatively large.
2. There will be no burrs for products cut by a circular sawing machine. Still, compared to the automatic cutting machine, it requires a higher labor cost. So the price is relatively high, and it is suitable for cutting some long stainless steel pipes.
3. The cutting effect of the automatic cutting machine is comparable to that of laser cutting stainless steel, and the cost is relatively cost-effective. It does not require a workforce, but the too large length will take more machine transmission time, so it is suitable for cutting short sizes.
4. For no burr products, the best method is to use laser-cut stainless steel, but the cost of laser cutting is relatively high.
Therefore, the specific cutting method cannot be said to be absolutely good. The choice should be made according to the comprehensive requirements of the outer diameter, thickness, cutting length and quantity, and cutting effect of the stainless steel pipe.
