Sheared to size - Stainless Steel plates
- How is the plate cut to size?
Stock plates are cut to size using a CNC guillotine.
- What shapes can you cut?
We can cut strips, squares, rectangles, triangles and trimmed combinations of these. We can trim corners for welded plates and gusset pieces.
Irregular shapes are best cut on our Hi-Definition plasma machine. Please contact our sales desk with a drawing for a quotation.
- What will the cut edge be like?
The guillotined edge will be a sheared edge. The metal edges will be sharp and must always be handled with appropriate PPE.

We can cut stainless steel Grade 304/304L and Grade 316/316L.
We can also cut mild steel (carbon steel) S275.

Our standard material is 'Hot Rolled and Descaled' mill material. Other surface finishes by arrangement with our Sales Office.

We punch holes or slots in stainless steel or mild steel plates. The Punched Holes diameter must be greater than the plate thickness. Holes less than the plate thickness must be drilled - please contact the Sales Desk for a price
