Stainless steel cookware manufacturing process: A step-by-step overview
As we embark on this journey of discovery, I invite you to observe the meticulousness and care in each stage of the production process at KÖBACH. Please take a look at our world-class stainless steel cookware production steps.
Sourcing of Raw Materials: Securing the Best Start
It all starts with securing first-class raw materials. We pride ourselves on forming strong and lasting partnerships with our suppliers based on a shared commitment to quality and sustainability. Rigorous quality testing ensures we work with the finest materials possible, laying the foundation for our high-quality cookware.
Material selection: the foundation of quality cookware
At KÖBACH, we accept not only the materials supplied to us; We evaluate them carefully. We test the purity and consistency of our samples, assess our suppliers’ ethical and sustainability standards, and carefully negotiate pricing and delivery terms. This careful selection process is necessary to maintain the high standards we set for our cookware.
Pressing: shaping cookware
The transformation begins with pressing, where our stainless steel billet forms a pan. The material is pulled through a series of dies with precise control, ensuring uniform shape and desired quality. It’s a remarkable transition from a flat plate to something starting to look like your favorite cookware.
Cutting and Rolling: Shape Finishing
After pressing, advanced machinery and precise blade positioning cut stainless steel into shape. Edges are rolled for a smooth, burr-free surface, and all waste is responsibly recycled. This stage is very important to ensure the cookware’s ergonomics, safety, and aesthetics.
Cleaning & Drying: Ensuring perfect hygiene and aesthetics
Cleanliness is a top priority in our process. Each cookware undergoes a thorough cleaning process to remove dust and contaminants. It is sprayed with water, soaked in a cleaning solution, rinsed, and dried with a hot air blower. This step ensures that the cookware has a clean, smooth surface ready for the next step.
Sandblasting: Surface preparation
After cleaning, the cookware is sandblasted with high-speed abrasive particles. This process removes any residual impurities, creating a lightly textured surface that improves the adhesion of non-stick coatings or other surface treatments.
Non-stick coating: Improve usability
With preheated and sandblasted cookware, it’s time to apply a non-stick coating. This coating, which hardens at high temperatures, forms a durable bond that improves the usability of cookware and is easy to clean. Meticulous quality checks follow this step, ensuring each product meets our stringent standards.
Laser Engraving: Exact Marking Deployment
Then, our lasers go live, etching logos or designs onto kitchenware with unsurpassed precision. This step ensures consistent branding across all our products, a visual testament to our commitment to quality and craftsmanship.
Packing: the final step into the kitchen
The final step is packing. Automated machines carefully pack, label, and pack cookware for shipping. Here, we take a moment to appreciate each piece’s journey, from a humble stainless steel drum to a culinary masterpiece ready for your kitchen.
