42CrMo4 (EN 10083-3)

 

PROPERTIES AND EMPLOYEMENTS
IT IS THE MOST USED QUENCHED AND TEMPERED STEEL THANKS TO THE GREAT RELATIONSHIP CHARACTERISTICS/COSTS.
IT HAS AN ELEVATED HARDENABILITY, GOOD HEAT RESISTANCE, EXCELLENT FORGING AND GOOD MACHINABILITY WITH MACHINE TOOLS. IT CAN BE HARDENED ON THE SURFACE OR NITRITED IN ORDER TO ELEVATE THE WEAR RESISTANCE AND THE FATIGUE STRENGTH.
QUENCHED AND TEMPERED AND NITRITED GEARS CAN SUBSTITUTE THE CASE-HARDENED AND HARDENED ONES, IF THEY ARE NOT SUBMITTED TO TOO ELEVATED PRESSURE.

Steels

Our steel always comes from the same European steelworks, which guarantee a continuity for what concerns quality. The constant quality of the supplies allows to have repetitive parameters in mechanical processing and a greater control over deformations during heat treatment.

Machining

Precise cuttings of small and big series are guaranteed by the employement of latest generation automatic saws that were projected and realized in order to guarantee precision standards required by customers, reducing processing wastage.
