Since the beginning of the 21st century, due to the improvement of living standards, more than 30% of the residents in my country need high-end water pipes to meet their needs for high-quality life. Therefore, high-quality stainless steel materials have moved from high-end tableware to household water pipes. It has become a trend to use high-quality thin-walled stainless steel pipes in industrial or home decoration projects. Thin-walled stainless steel water pipes and stainless steel pipe fittings will become an indispensable part of the future building materials market.

Stainless steel is a recognized healthy material that can be implanted in the human body. The use of stainless steel as a material to manufacture water pipes has a history of many years in developed countries. Thin-walled stainless steel pipes have gradually become a new choice for water supply pipes due to their safety, reliability, hygiene, environmental protection, and economical applicability, and have become the current world trend and development direction. Stainless steel water pipes are called the real green pipes of the 21st century.

What are the difficulties in processing stainless steel pipe fittings?

The use of stainless steel profiles is becoming more and more common, and the demand for stainless steel profiles is also increasing, which has promoted the development of stainless steel precision processing to a certain extent. The following is an explanation of the difficulties in stainless steel pipe processing:

1. Severe work hardening of stainless steel pipe fittings: The work hardening tendency is large during cutting, and the tool cuts in the work hardening area, which shortens the tool life.

2. Large cutting force and high cutting temperature: This type of material has high strength, large tangential stress and plastic deformation during cutting, so the cutting force is large. In addition, the thermal conductivity of the material is extremely poor, and the high temperature is often concentrated in the narrow area near the cutting edge of the tool, which accelerates the wear of the tool.

3. Stainless steel pipes are prone to sticking to the tool: No matter what kind of stainless steel, the chips are tough and the cutting temperature is very high during processing. When the tough chips flow through the front cutting edge, the tool wear will be accelerated.

4. The tool wears faster. The material generally contains high melting point elements, has high plasticity, and has a high cutting temperature, which accelerates the tool wear. The tool needs to be sharpened and replaced frequently, which affects production efficiency and increases the cost of tool use.
