Stainless steel is one of the most popular metal stamping materials because of its visual appeal, corrosion resistance, and durability. These benefits make stainless steel ideal for an array of industries, including construction, automotive, electronics, and much more. If you want high-quality stamped parts for your application, stainless steel is ultimately one of the best material options available.

Read on to learn more about the benefits of stainless steel metal stamped parts, their common applications, the specific grades used in stamping, and why you should partner with American Industrial for your next stainless steel stamping project

Benefits of Using Stainless Steel Stamped Parts

Stainless steel stamped parts offer numerous benefits over other types of stamped materials. These advantages include:

  • Corrosion Resistance: Stainless steel stamped parts are highly resistant to corrosive chemicals, weather, and other elements that could otherwise cause premature wear.
  • Strength and Durability: Under stress and pressure, stainless steel retains its structural integrity and holds up over many years.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Stainless steel’s durability and corrosion resistance minimize maintenance requirements and the need for costly repairs or replacements, helping you save money in the long run.
  • Customizable Aesthetic: Depending on what kind of appearance you want to achieve, stainless steel can be customized with the particular finish you require, such as electropolished.

Types of Stainless Steel Used for Stamped Parts

Stamped parts can come in different types of stainless steel grades. The following are the most common stainless steel grades, chosen depending on the strength and corrosion resistance required for each application:

  • Grade 301: This grade of stainless steel offers moderate tensile strength for many general-purpose commercial and industrial applications.
  • Grade 304: This is the most popular stainless steel option due to its good corrosion resistance and durability.
  • Grade 316 & 316L: If an application requires stainless steel with superior resistance to corrosive conditions, 316 or 316L may be best. These harsher environments include marine, pharmaceutical, and food processing industries.
  • Special Grades: For applications requiring even more durability, strength, and corrosion resistance, other special grades are available, including grades 321, 347, and 17-7PH.


Many applications rely on stainless steel stamped parts because of their advantages. The following are just some of the uses for stainless steel stamped components.


Hardware for equipment in the food and beverage, aerospace, healthcare, and other industries use stainless steel stamped parts due to their corrosion-resistant, hygienic properties. American Industrial stamps nuts, bolts, screws, catches, locks, door handles, hinges, latches, and other hardware made of stainless steel to prolong equipment lifespan.


Many automotive parts also use stainless steel stamped components to reduce wear and tear. Some parts we stamp using this metal include mounting plates for GPS systems and rearview mirrors, steering wheel spokes, horn buttons, motor mounts, and bearing retainers.


Commercial and household appliances need stamped parts that can withstand corrosive environments, high temperatures, and stress, so stainless steel is the best material to use in many instances. Appliance parts we produce using stainless steel metal stamping include bushings, heat sinks, washers, shields, brackets, antennas, springs, and enclosures.

Power Tools

Power tools often consist of stainless steel stamped parts to resist corrosion, rust, and high temperatures. American Industrial fabricates probes, muffler covers, yokes, and channels from stainless steel.

Quality Assurance and Certifications

To maintain quality assurance across all American Industrial products, we use various quality control measures and maintain certifications such as:

  • ISO 9001:2015 Certification: This certification supports all our processes and products, ensuring high quality for every solution we provide.
  • Advanced Quality Control Tools: We use statistical process control (SPC) methods and metrology tools like Micro-Vu optical camera systems, GAGEtrak, and more, allowing for increased repeatability and precision with every component.
  • Comprehensive Testing Protocols: Before final delivery of our stamped parts, the products undergo thorough non-destructive and destructive testing. These protocols assess how well the components meet durability and quality standards.
  • Transparency and Documentation: We make all documentation for quality control and testing readily available to customers.
