  • Admiring Perforated Gratings

    I'm a regular shopper at a grocery store a few miles from where I work. I often take trips there on my lunch break to pick up their six dollar sushi plate, which I then carry over to their cafeteria and eat while reading a magazine or newspaper. Unless it's full, I usually park in a small section of the lot right in front of the building's doors. For some reason, every time I walk in from one of those close parking spots, I've noticed the small drainage ditch that's...

    Jill Jusko | IndustryWeek Hendrick Manufacturing: Born in 1876 What does John D. Rockefeller have to do with the start of Hendrick Manufacturing in 1876? It was Rockefeller to whom founder Eli Hendrick sold oil-refining patents and then used the proceeds to develop a high-speed, multiple-punch perforating process. In the beginning, Hendrick manufactured perforated metal filters for the coal and oil refining industries.  Production spread to other industries when the company’s new technique of efficiently producing perforated metal became known.  This picture shows a variety of products Hendrick manufactured...

  • Hendrick Manufacturing Marks 140 Years

    When Pony Express rider Eli Hendrick trekked across the countryside in the 1840s, it is likely that his mind was on more than the mail. History shares that the young Hendrick disliked the cold, nearly frozen waters and decided that delivering mail from horseback was not his bailiwick. But what did become this young entrepreneur’s forte was oil and metal. The latter led to the development in 1876 of Carbondale’s largest employer: Hendrick Manufacturing Company. On Manufacturing Day October 7th, Hendrick will celebrate its 140th anniversary, recognized as one of...

Industry Information

Perforated Stainless Steel

Perforated stainless steel refers to sheets of stainless steel that have holes, shapes or designs punched into them. They are strong, light weight and corrosion resistant. When steel is alloyed with chromium, a rough, invisible, corrosion-resistant film permanently forms on the surface of the steel, creating a perfect metal for outdoor applications or other contexts in which the metal will be exposed to moisture.

Perforated stainless steel is manufactured in sheets, tubes, pipes, plates, screens and panels. The automotive, furniture, food and beverage, restaurant, manufacturing, water filtration, building construction, architectural, interior design and pharmaceutical industries all use products made of perforated stainless steel. Since stainless steel fares well in any climate, its perforated products are often used in exterior building construction as grating, screens, sun shields, lighting diffusers, stair treads, facades and decorative paneling. Outdoor furniture like tables, chairs and benches are often constructed out of perforated stainless steel so that rainwater and snow will fall through the holes instead of building up on the furniture's surface. Stainless steel does not contaminate other substances, and because of its smooth surface, it is easy to clean and sanitize. Therefore, it is used to make filters and sifters in food, beverage, potable water and pharmaceutical applications. Kitchen tools like pans and strainers are also made of perforated stainless steel as well as clean room workstation equipment.

There are 15 different grades of stainless steel that are used to manufacture perforated products, all of which resist bacterial growth, rust and corrosion. Each has a different finish, including matte, satin, brushed, reflective, coarse and abrasive. Many different holes and shapes are punched into stainless steel, including round, square, oval, triangular, diamond, hexagonal, slot and star shapes. These shapes are often used to form intricate and decorative patterns. Depending on the complexity of the design, stainless steel sheets are perforated two different ways. Both processes begin when the sheets of stainless steel are fed into the punching press. For simple, repetitive patterns that expand across the whole sheet, all-cross perforated punching presses are used. These metal shaping machines use rams in the shape of the desired pattern to puncture the thin sheet of stainless steel. When complex, unique and custom-made patterns and designs are needed, a sectional two-axis punching press is used. This machinery is often CNC controlled and moves the sheet under a stationary punching ram to produce holes that are non-repetitive.
