Stainless Steel Sheet&Plate Manufacturing Process


Melting the raw materials including iron ore, nickel, chromium, and other alloys in a furnace to create molten metal at high temperatures.



Molten metal poured into a mold to create large slabs or billets of stainless steel.



Slab heated and rolled several times into thinner sheets or plates using a series of rolling mills.



Stainless steel sheets or plates are annealed to remove any stresses and improve their ductility and toughness.




Polishing, grinding, or coating the plates or shheets’ surface to improve its appearance and protect it from corrosion.


Stainless Steel Sheet vs. Stainless Steel Plate

The difference between stainless steel sheets and plates can be defined by thickness. If the thickness of the metal is ¼ inch (6mm) or more, then it is considered a plate. Plate thickness is typically measured in inches. If the thickness is less than ¼inch (6mm), it is considered sheet.

Quality Control

1. Raw Material Inspection

Inspect the chemical composition, physical properties, and dimensions of the raw materials used in the manufacturing process.

2. In-process Inspection

During the manufacturing process, check the thickness, width, and length of the stainless steel sheets or plates, and conduct tests to ensure that the material is free from defects.

3. Final Inspection

Conduct a final inspection to to check the surface finish, dimensions, and mechanical properties of the stainless steel sheets or plates.

4. Testing

Conduct various tests to ensure that the product meets the required quality standards. This includes tests for corrosion resistance, tensile strength, and hardness.

5. Documentation

Document all inspection and testing results to ensure that the product meets the required quality standards and can be traced back to the manufacturing process.

How to Choose the Right Thickness?

1. Determine the Load and Stress

The first step is to determine the load and stress that the plate will be subjected to. This includes considering factors such as the weight of the load, the frequency of use, and any impact or vibration that may occur.

5. Consult Plate Thickness Charts

Consult plate thickness charts that are available from experts or stainless steel plate suppliers to determine the recommended thickness for the chosen material based on the load and stress.

2. Consider the Plate's Structural Role

The next step is to consider the structural role that the plate will play in the application. This includes identifying whether the plate will be used as a support, a barrier, or a covering.

6. Add a Safety Factor

To ensure that the plate can withstand unexpected or extreme loads, it is recommended to add a safety factor when choosing the plate thickness. A typical safety factor is 1.5 to 2 times the calculated thickness.

3. Determine the Required Strength

Based on the load, stress, and structural role, determine the required strength that the plate must have. This includes considering the yield strength, tensile strength, and elongation properties of the stainless steel.

7. Consider Corrosion Resistance

Finally, consider the corrosion resistance of the chosen plate material and how it may be affected by the application environment. This includes considering the potential for exposure to chemicals, saltwater, or extreme temperatures.

4. Identify the Plate Material

Based on the required strength properties, identify the appropriate stainless steel material that is suitable for the application.
