AISI 4140 steel grade is a versatile steel grade. 4140 material is widely used in a lots of industrial fields. It is a chromium-molybdenum alloy steel. Here you have common 15 applications listed.
You will find the chemical and mechanical properties comparison between steel 4130 vs 4340 steel grades in this post. And it may help for machining purposes and as a reference for your purchasing 4130 steel and 4340 steel.
We compare differences between ISO 4957, EN ISO 4957, BS EN ISO 4957 vs DIN EN ISO 4957 tool steel standard. You could also have other issues that should be cared about. Check it out for details.
A2 steel is knows as air harden steel while O1 steel is oil harden steel. Here we briefly compare this two tool steel grades as follows. A2 tool steel belongs to A-Group in ASTM A681, which have high hardenability and may be hardened in air. O1 tool steel belongs to O-Group in A681 standard, which must be hardened by quenching in oil.
EN9 vs EN19 Steel: both belong to BS 970 standard. but en9 steel is carbon steel while en19 steel is alloy steel. you have the chemical composition properties. Check for more details now.
As you may know, in steel industry, there must be some dimension and sizes for one product or a project. And for each size of product, there will be some standard and tolerance requirements. In this post, we share the different round steel bar tolerance requirements between BS 970-3 and ISO 286-2 standard, for cold drawn, turned and precision round steel bar.
If you are in steel industry, have you ever notice what all those chemical composition listed on a steel materials test report really mean? Here we list 21 chemical elements which effect steel properties. You can check for details of each chemical elements and effects on steel materials mechanical properties.
There are Six groups of tool steel: water-hardening, cold-work tool steel, shock-resisting, high-speed, hot-work tool steel, and special purpose/plastic mold tool steel. The choice of group to select depends on, cost, working temperature, required surface hardness, strength, shock resistance, and toughness requirements.
When choosing a steel materials for a job, it is important to know the difference between the different types of steel grades, steel process available, how it is used and the advantages of including it in your industrial or construction project. This post will explain the differences between hot rolled steel, cold rolled steel, forged steel and cast steel, discuss the advantages and applications of each.
There are so many different standards institutes and organizations worldwide. Every country will have their own standards system by national organization or sectors. We list 9 common international known standards institutes and organizations, AISI, ASTM, DIN, BS, ANSI, JIS, AFNOR and AS, which are widely used worldwide.
