Machinery: stainless steel for appliances

An ever-increasing number of customers are using stainless steel as their material of choice when it comes to the design, construction and manufacturing of appliances, devices or machines in:

  • The kitchen
  • The bathroom
  • The household in general
  • Gastronomy
  • Medical technology
  • or in many other areas of industry

This ideal and fascinating metal has become indispensable in many areas due to its unique properties, both in terms of function (corrosion resistance and others) and attractive appearance and feel.

Stainless steel appliances and machinery: what are the benefits?

In contrast to steel, aluminium and other metals, inox steel not only impresses with its properties such as:

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Durability
  • Chemical resistance

It is also easily mechanically deformable during production and processing, as well as during assembly, and can be easily welded.

Stainless steel consists of up to 80% recycled material and is 100% recyclable.

In addition, the high quality and exclusive appearance of the inox material and other functional attributes of the metal play a decisive role in the design and purchase decision of stainless steel for appliances and machines for:

  • General machinery and mechanical engineering
  • Special machinery and mechanical engineering
  • Plant engineering
  • Commercial kitchen appliances (e.g., food processing, storage tanks, brewing equipment, etc.)

Effectively suitable inox steel appliances of the highest quality

In terms of appliance construction, such as at kitchen appliances, machines, apparatus and components, the following stainless steel grades are used:

  • AISI 430
  • AISI 304
  • AISI 316
  • and other grades

The applications of modern stainless steel surfaces in appliance construction and machinery engineering are just as varied as the numerous individual stainless steel surfaces themselves. A large number of manufacturing companies and their partners use stainless steel for example for:

  • Parts of refrigerators, cookers, grills, microwaves, ovens
  • Other kitchen appliances such as coffee machines, toasters, etc.
  • Medical, technical and analytical devices
  • Apparatus and fittings in the biotechnology, medical, pharmaceutical, measuring and laboratory technology
  • Packaging, cleanroom and air-conditioning technology
  • Cleaning, semiconductor, food-processing and chemical industries
  • Other industrial equipment, such as lift or scissor tables
