What is Alloy Steel?
Alloy steel is one of the widely used material used in closed die forging technic, which is alloyed with a variety of elements in total amounts between 1.0% and 50% by weight to improve its mechanical properties. Alloy steels encompass a wide range of iron-based metals which contain higher levels of chromium that do not exceed 3.99%. Metals that contain greater amounts of chromium are classified either as tool steels or stainless steels. Alloy steels vary in their alloying elements which determine the properties of a particular material.
Why Alloy Steel Forging?
- Alloy steel is a steel that has had small amounts of one or more alloying elements (other than carbon) such as such as manganese, silicon, nickel, titanium, copper, chromium and aluminum added. This produces specific properties for forgings that are not found in regular carbon steel forging.
- Alloy steels are popular in steel forging because of their economical cost, wide availability, ease of processing, and good mechanical properties. Alloy steels are generally more responsive to heat and mechanical treatments than carbon steels.
- The elements added in alloy steel making the material take on different aspects after forging, such as increased hardness, increased corrosion resistance, increased strength, improved formability (ductility); the weldability can also change. This makes alloy steel forging popular for the application of wear reistance products.
