What are Stainless steel Sheet Cutting Techniques?

There are two frequently used methods for cutting stainless steel sheets.

Laser cutting and shear cutting

The laser cutting produces a tiny heat-affected zone and consequently less part distortion. It is one of its fact advantages.

While shear cutting is utilized for cutting plates and flat sheets. The most common shapes generated are rectangles and squares with straight sides. However other straight side shapes are also possible.

One benefit is faster cutting cycles. Compared to flame cutting, this method is more speedy. Also, it provides cleaner edges compared to burning.

What is the Thinnest Stainless Steel?

The 0.01 mm SUS sheet is the thinnest stainless steel in China.

Before it, process control made it challenging to maintain control over the product.

How Thin Can Stainless Steel be Made?

Stainless steel sheet metal can be fairly thin. But to qualify as “sheet metal,” it only needs to reach 14 inches in thickness.

After that, the metal is known as a “plate.”

For example, 12-gauge thicknesses are 0.105” thick stainless steel.

What Key Expressions Define Thin Stainless Steel Sheet Sizes?
  • Gauge

A sheet of the metal gauge is a number that describes its thickness; a higher number denotes a thinner sheet.

The weight of the sheet for a certain material is used to create gauge size standards.

The thickness often reduces as the gauge number rises.

  • Thicknesses

Your capacity to cut a metal sheet depends on its thickness. There are many different thicknesses.

In general, a larger gauge indicates a thinner sheet; the thinnest sheets are called “foil” or “leaf,” and parts thicker than 0.25″ are called “plate.”

Designs must retain a constant thickness because parts are manufactured from a single sheet of metal.

Make sure that any interior bend radii are at least 1x the thickness of the material to prevent distortion or cracking in your product.

  • Weight

Weight is expressed in pounds per square foot.  (the metric system uses kilograms per square meter).

This figure represents the weight of a sheet with that particular gauge.

How Do You Measure Thickness Of Stainless Steel Sheets?

The thickness is measurable by the application of a gauge wheel or the measuring tape.

How Do You Cut Thin Stainless Steel Sheet?

Preparation For The Working Space.

Set up a stable, strong and rigid working bench/table where you put the stainless sheet for cutting.

Obtain Specific Cut Measurements.

Use a measuring tape to obtain accurate measurement for the cut, and marking the exact lines you want to cut.

Cutting Of Stainless Steel Sheet.

Start by marking accurate parts for cutting.

Then select the best cutting tools such as the Chop Saw and the Angle Grinder for fast and accurate cutting.

How Do You Manufacture Thin Stainless Steel Sheets?

Manufacturing starts by heating the stainless steel material in an electric furnace until it reaches its melting point.

The molten material undergoes decarburization process to remove excess carbon.

Then there is stirring of the steel in its molten form for uniform and quality distribution.

The molten steel at its cooling stage undergoes hot rolling forming a rough shape.

Steel material then undergoes annealing process where there is relief of the internal stresses.

After the heat treatment, steel undergoes the laser cutting process so as to obtain thin stainless steel sheets.

Lastly, it is the application of favourable surface finishes.

How Does Gauge Size And Thickness Of Stainless Steel Sheets Compare?

Gauge size

Thickness of stainless steel sheet

Gauge size increases with decrease in thickness size. Thickness increases with a reduction in gauge number.

Are Thin Stainless Steel Sheets Bendable?


Stainless steel sheets are easily bendable by use of the hands.

How Do You Reduce Thickness Of Stainless Steel Sheet Metal?

Hot Rolling.

Hot roll the stainless steel metal sheet at 1400 degrees temperature to reduce its thickness to a specific size of choice.

This is applicable when targeting to reduce the specific areas of the metal sheet, so as to obtain uniform thickness.

Can You Cut Thin Stainless Steel Sheets With A Torch?


By heating the stainless steel with acetylene torch to an extent that it turns red.

Then loosen the cutting liver on the stainless sheet to allow flow of oxygen to concentrate heat on the cutting area.
