  • Spring Steel
    Spring steel is any of a variety of steels that are normally of the high-carbon or alloy type. They are used in the manufacture of springs because of their high tensile properties. The type of spring steel used depends on the application and type of spring. They range from plain carbon grades
  • Comparative Analysis of Stainless Steel and Carbon Steel Fasteners
    Corrosion of stainless and carbon steel are very different. This paper will provide information regarding general attack or surface corrosion as this is often a primary consideration when selecting fastener material. ./e32582d7-affe-456b-8372-281c0bd4b876 Comparative Analysis of Stainless
  • Determining Whether a Ring is Carbon or Stainless Steel
    SAE 1060-1090 Carbon Steel and PH 15-7 MO Stainless react differently to nitric acid. A drop of nitric acid placed on carbon steel will cause the steel to become dark in color. When placed on stainless, the material will not change in color. Holding a portion of the ring against a grinding wheel
  • SPRING PERFORMANCE - Processing Effects on Residual Stress
    see Figure 23. This. recovery process is what is commonly referred to as stress relief in the spring industry. The temperature. required to accomplish the recovery process depends on the material type and processing history (i.e. carbon steel vs. alloy steel, cold drawn vs. oil tempered, etc
  • Tool Steel
    with the least severe quench. Tool steels are classified into several broad groups, some of which are further divided into subgroups according to alloy composition, hardenability, or mechanical similarities. or carbon, tool steels, designated Type W by AISI, rely solely on carbon content for their useful
  • Frequently Asked Questions/Technical Information
    than identically sized Carbon Steel counterparts. Q: What is Music Wire, and why is it used to make springs?. A: Music wire, although its name is derived from the material used for piano wire, is a common high-carbon steel alloy used for spring manufacture. It is cold drawn and offers uniform tensile

  • Wire-formed Rings
    applications. Round-section rings are for external use on shafts only and are used where the expected load is light. Ring assembly and disassembly tools range from a screwdriver to automatic tools, depending on the application. Carbon spring steel (SAE-1060) is the standard material used in retaining rings
  • Hallestoy, Hallestoy B, Hallestoy C Etc.
    less than total expertise in the melting and forming of this powerful steel. All Metals & Forge prides itself on offering a far broader range of specialty steels than anyone else in the business, which may be one of the reasons so many industry-leading machine shops come here for close-tolerance parts
