Steel is the most widely used material after concrete and water. It produces approximately 800 million tons per year. And why is steel still the most widely used material? This is mainly due to the abundance of iron, which can be found, for example, only in the earth's crust, around 4% and, above all, much more in the earth's core. But mainly it is the variability of its properties. Steel can simply be called an alloy of iron and carbon, it can be soft or hardened, high-strength or ductile, magnetic or non-magnetic, corrosive or heat-resistant, abrasion-resistant, etc. And that's not all. The final properties are achieved by adding other elements of the alloy (so-called alloying), the production technology used or the heat treatment regime. These three parameters affect the final phase composition of the material and the morphology of the structure and thus close the ring as well as the feedback on the mechanical properties.
Steel is mainly used for load-bearing structures of buildings. Relatively high strength at low weight allows the use of steel for highly stressed structures, whether industrial halls or architecturally demanding buildings. It can also be used in the construction of bridges, footbridges or various types of stairs. Due to its aesthetic qualities, it is also popular with many artists.
Polishing is usually the last operation that gives the product the final look and design. However, a number of different operations are performed before polishing. The surface quality achieved by these machining methods is an important factor for the final polishing. The worse the surface quality, the longer it takes to polish. The longer the area is worked on, the more expensive the work. This can be a major problem for quality and precision demanding surfaces. For this reason, it is necessary to ensure the best possible surface quality of the input material, which needs to be polished, in order to avoid unnecessarily lengthy and costly removal of deep defects after pre-treatment.
For the correct course of the entire polishing process until the desired result is achieved in the shortest possible time, it is important to know which suitable abrasive and polishing pastes to use together with the emery cloth or fleece. When finishing, it is especially necessary to choose discs and pastes gradually up to the finest ones.
It could be said that our company is one of the experts in the surface treatment of stainless steel - we mainly process this type of steel. Whether mechanical or manual machining, we have many years of experience, advanced technology and invaluable know - how. You can find many examples of our work in this section .
