1144 Stainless Steel

AISI 1144 Stainless Steel

Standard resulphurized 1144 stainless steel with best properties like stress and fatigue resistance and minimum warpage which is best used in screw machines and induction hardened parts.

AISI 1144 stainless steel is referred to as a stress proof metal. It is a type of carbon-manganese grade which can produce high tensile property when it is severely cold-worked. Stressed 1144 bars after cold drawing are treated to minimize the tendency of warping after machining.

This stainless steel grade exhibits exceptional properties like hardness and high strength even without heat treatment. 1144 stainless steels possess the great combination of minimum warp, good wear resistance, and free machining which is not found in regular steels. 

As a medium carbon, free cutting, resulphurized steel, it can respond well to heat treating process. It contained high manganese, high carbon content which provides it with wear resistance and good strength.

1144 can be a cold rolled or drawn steel. Having improved mechanical properties, 1144 stainless steel is often used in applications like screw machines and induction hardened parts.

Some of its applications are:

  • Spindles
  • Piston rods
  • Pump shafts and motor shafts
  • Keyed shafts and armature shafts
  • Bushings and king pins
  • Gears and arbors
  • Pinions
  • Sleeves
  • Lead screws and racks
  • Boring bars and collets
  • Drive shafts and link pins

Our 1144 cold rolled steels are available in ground shaft and round bar.

These 1144 steels are electromagnetically tested with the use of eddy currents. There are also other benefits included like resistance to stress and fatigue, distortion, minimum warpage, and balanced working.
