  • Alloy Steel
    Steels that contain specified amounts of alloying elements -- other than carbon and the commonly accepted amounts of manganese, copper, silicon, sulfur, and phosphorus -- are known as alloy steels. Alloying elements are added to change mechanical or physical properties. A steel is considered
  • Carbon Steel
    and ductility. For plain carbon steels, about 0.2 to 0.25% C provides the best machinability. Above and below this level, machinability is generally lower for hot-rolled steels. Standard wrought-steel compositions (for both carbon and alloy steels) are designated by an AISI or SAE four-digit
  • Tool Steel & Tool Steel Supplier
    As the name implies, tool steel refers to a number of different high speed, carbon, and alloy steels that are used to make tools. Desirable features in tool steel include toughness, wear resistance, and strength at high temperatures. High speed steel is so-called because it is capable of cutting
  • Stainless Steel
    grades are generally designated as either heat resistant or corrosion resistant. wrought stainless steel are classified in three groups: Carbon content is usually low (0.15% or less), and the alloys contain a minimum of 16% chromium with sufficient nickel and manganese to provide an austenitic
  • HSLA Steel
    Those steel alloys known as high-strength low-alloy (HSLA) steels provide increased strength-to-weight ratios over conventional low-carbon steels for only a modest price premium. Because HSLA alloys are stronger, they can be used in thinner sections, making them particularly attractive
  • 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
  • What Is Passivation? Why Do We Need To Passivate Flanged Heaters?
    Most of the parts of flanged heaters are made of stainless steel-an alloy that is mainly comprised of iron, carbon, and chromium. Of these, chromium is the chemical element that makes the steel "stainless" i.e., resistant to rust. Chromium reacts with the oxygen in the atmosphere to form a thin
  • Aluminum Tooling Speeds Delivery and Cuts Cycle Time
    Unique Tool & Gauge Inc., Windsor, Ont. Aluminum tooling for high-volume plastic-molding applications? Making the switch from carbon-alloy steel while maintaining part quality has been on engineers' minds for years, especially in the automotive industry. Unique Tool and Gauge Inc. , Windsor, Ont
