Whatever the specific application. Valbruna will almost certainly have a grade tailored to its customer’s precise requirement. The Maxival range of stainless steel grades, which has been produced by Acciaierie Valbruna since the early 1980’s and which has been constantly improved, offers machine shops, a material grade which has the same corrosion resistance and mechanical properties as standard stainless steel grades but with enhanced machinability. For the customer this means higher feed speeds, longer tool life, less machine down time and fewer rejections. It is available across the grade range 304/304L,304Cu, 321,316/316L, 303,420,329 (En 1.4460) etc., but can be supplied in other grades on request.
