How About The 301 Stainless Steel Strip Properties ?

301 stainless steel strip for Diamond internal circular blades

The sturdy steel strip of type 301 is austenitic. The high strength and ductility of this stainless steel is after the cold operation. Like 201 steel, 301 is not magnetic in the annealed state with the cold operation and is increasingly magnetic. But it’s just marginally magnetic in the end compared with other regular austenitic stainless steels.

In WT percent, the chemical composition of 301 is:

The carbon max. 0.15, Manganese max. 0.045, Phosphorus max. 0.10, Sulfur max. 0.030 and Silicium max. 0.75 and Chromium 16.00 – 18.00, Nickel 0.10 max.

The 301 Steel’s Physical Properties include:

Density: 7,78 g/cm3, 0,285 lbs/in3, Electric resistivity: BTW/lb/°F (kJ/kg•K): 45°F (0-100°C), 34°F(0-27°C): 0.112. Electronic resistance: Microhm-in (microhm-cm), 68°F (20°C) (0.50). < 1.02° max: 2250-2590° F (1399-1421° C). Melting scale. < 1.01 degrees C.

The higher carbon and lower nickel content of the 301 stainless steel strip help positive characteristics of drawing and formation. However, the corrosion resistance is less compromised by this composition.

Further, corrosion prevention involves a secondary annealing procedure for stainless steel 301. The secondary method destroys the carbides of chromium and the soil coloring and restores the corrosion resistance of 301 stainless steel strip on soil or laser cutting edges. The secondary process

The steel band 301 is a 304 change in shape which lowers chromium and nickel content. This allows higher tensile forces to roll with less ductility loss simultaneously than with Type 304.

What Is The Raw Material Of Diamond Internal Circular Blades?

301 stainless steel strip

Diamond internal circular blades is mainly used to cut artificial crystal, single crystal silicon and precious ceramics and other material hard material, which has the advantages of small cutting slit, good cutting flatness and wear resistance.

Therefore, the substrate material of diamond 301 stainless steel knife put forward high requirements, at present, mainly use the thickness of 0.12mm sus301 stainless steel strip as the substrate of diamond stainless steel knife. Cold rolled strips are required to be flat and straight, without edge wave, and without warpage after stamping.

The specific requirements of the user are: Cold rolled strips hardness range: 490 ~ 530HV, preferably controlled at 500 ~ 525HV, elongation of 2.0% ~ 4.0% (transverse and longitudinal extension to be basically the same). Strip tensile strength in 1 650 ~ 1800MPa. usually we call this 301 stainless steel strip for 301 stainless steel 1/2 hard.

The key to the production of this 301 stainless steel strip is to control the Cold rolled strips plate shape and performance.

In this paper, we have optimized the best production process through repeated experiments, especially the cold rolling process, drawing and straightening process and stress relief annealing process, so that we can produce 301 stainless steel strips with good shape and excellent performance for diamond insert substrate stably.

How To Make The 301 Stainless Steel Strip?

SUS301 stainless steel strip with a thickness of 1.2mm and a width of 270mm is used, with a volume mass of about 1.5t.

Cold rolling process of 301 stainless steel strip

0.04mm ss 301 foil

The performance of diamond insert matrix directly affects the service life of the insert, and the performance of Cold rolled strips determines the performance of diamond insert matrix, so the design of cold rolling process is especially critical. Through long-term cold rolled production and experiments, tensile tests and hardness measurements were conducted on products with different deformations, so that the work hardening curve of SUS301 stainless steel strip was drawn, and the cold rolling process of 301 stainless steel strip for diamond insert substrate was determined.

When the deformation rate is between 48% and 54%, the hardness of Cold rolled strips is between 480 and 520 HV, the tensile strength is between 1640 and 1760 MPa, the yield strength is between 1360 and 1480 MPa, and the elongation is between 5% and 8%. Considering that the strip mechanical properties will be increased in the post-step when tensile bending straightening and stress relief annealing are also required, the deflection rate of the final rolling process is controlled at 52% ± 2%.

Through continuous experiments, this paper adopts the production process of three rolling and two annealing, which can meet the performance requirements of the product and is more economical. In the 12-roller precision cold rolling mill, the 1.2mm blank is cold rolled to 0.12mm, and the process parameters such as rolling force, rolling tension, amount of string rolls, rolling speed, rolling temperature and deformation rate of the pass are controlled in the rolling process, so as to control the performance and board shape of Cold rolled strips.

Stretching and bending straightening process

If the plate shape of the cold rolled strips can not reach very flat, then in the process of processing into diamond inner circle blade, in the use of the process due to uneven force on the blade, easy to lead to be cut by the uneven size of the product, and even the blade is torn. Therefore, it is necessary to straighten the cold rolled strips by stretching and bending, so as to ensure the flat shape of Cold rolled strips.

According to the experience accumulated from many experiments, the elongation in this experiment is set between 0.8% and 1.5%, depending on the shape of the cold rolled strips, and the tension is set between 25000 and 40000N, so that the strip shape is flatter after drawing and straightening, and the I value shown on the plate shape measuring instrument is basically between 0 and 1.

The following figure is an actual example of this experiment, in which the process parameters are continuously adjusted, and the final set of the finished drawing and straightening process parameters are: elongation set to 1.0%, the actual display value of 1.06%. Tension is set to 28000N, the actual value is 28380N, the plate shape measuring instrument shows the I value basically in the middle of 0 ~ 1, stretching bending straightening treatment after the strip plate shape is very flat.
