8620 steel is perfect for a multitude of applications such as pinions, gears, cranks, cams, shafting and tie bars. It ais also useful to make clutch shafts, axles, collets, heavy-duty pins, bushings, springs, die cases, bolting, hand tools, and numerous machinery parts and components.
The 8620 alloy steel is a cost-effective steel alloy, composed of carbon, chromium, nickel, and molybdenum. This alloy bar possesses excellent carburized properties, thanks to its nickel content, which enhances case toughness while maintaining above-average core toughness. The presence of molybdenum and chromium contributes to the proper formation of carbides, resulting in exceptional surface hardness and wear resistance.
Versatile Applications: The 8620 alloy steel finds wide usage in construction as structural steel, as well as in applications like bridges, cranes, and towers. It is a highly popular steel grade known for its versatility. this makes it an indispensable choice across industries such as oil and gas, shipbuilding, automotive, and construction.
Exceptional Strength: This steel variety offers remarkable strength and toughness. With a yield strength of 90 ksi (kips per square inch) and a tensile strength of 140 ksi, it can withstand impact and bending forces effectively.
Corrosion Resistance: Thanks to its lack of interstitial carbides, it exhibits excellent corrosion resistance. Additionally, its low carbon content further enhances its resistance to corrosion.
Superior Machinability: 8620 alloy steel is known for its machinability, allowing for efficient processing through milling, turning, grinding, or drilling operations.
Lightweight Advantage: Compared to equivalent square bars, the round bar boasts a lighter weight. They are more convenient for transportation and applications where weight is a concern.
Versatile Thickness: The thickness of the 8620 alloy steel makes it suitable for various applications, including forming and welding tasks.
