Stainless Steel (304)

Laser cut stainless steel (304 series) is our favorite metal for many projects, including industrial robotics, decorative applications, and automation machinery. It’s durable, strong, and easy to work with.

If you have a project that needs to stand the test of time, stainless steel is a great choice.

NON-MAGNETIC

Versatile laser cut 304 stainless steel for any project

Weldable, formable, and easy to work with, 304 stainless is our first choice for projects that require massive strength and durability. 

Laser cut 304 stainless steel is oxidation resistant, making it easy to sanitize and maintain. This particular feature makes 304 stainless steel the go-to grade for many food service applications, from countertops to cookware.

Laser Cut Stainless Steel

Laser cut stainless steel’s resistance to oxidation also lends itself to more corrosive, high exposure applications. It can be found everywhere from construction sites to wineries to marine environments, with a different purpose in each one. The versatility of this steel makes it one of the most widely used materials SendCutSend offers. For extreme corrosion resistance, check out our laser cut 316 stainless steel.

Fusion welding performance for 304 stainless steel is excellent both with and without fillers so it’s a strong choice across projects that require welding. Heavily welded sections sometimes require additional treatments, such as annealing, but generally the material is simple to weld.

Ultimately, you can count on SendCutSend’s 304 stainless steel to meet your project’s needs and provide solid parts made to your specifications.

Our laser cut stainless steel is guaranteed

We guarantee awesome quality parts. If you’re not 100% happy, we’ll give you a refund or remake on the spot – no questions, no hassle.

Minimum Hole Size

To ensure the best quality for your parts, we recommend no less than 50% material thickness for all holes. See the images below for more detail. The largest hole is 70% material thickness. Each hole decresases in size by 10%.
