15/05/2014 Stainless steel forming and welding innovations Whitelegg announce new innovations is stainless steel processing. The forming, and particularly welding, of stainless steel is often problematic when compared with mild steel. Whitelegg has incorporated several features into its latest CFM 2D wire bending machine designed to address these problems. With a specially developed welding system and sophisticated weld control, Whitelegg has been able to produce a very strong and smooth weld that requires no secondary finishing. Many products made from stainless steel are made for the medial or catering industries and thus the weld must be smooth and strong. In addition, in line chamfering of the wire results in clean edges of the wire ends for non welded parts to aid the finish of the end product where no sharp edges are acceptable.
