Our alloy steel round bar stock contributes so much to the aerospace construction industries and works best in forging operations.
O’Hare Precision Metals is a committed alloy steel round bar supplier and precision grinding services provider that is considered a leader in supplying businesses with quality alloy steels and forgings which are in high demand in industrial applications.
Alloy steels have forging capabilities which include flanges, discs, and hubs, seamless rolled rings, blocks, cylinders and sleeves, shafts, and stepped shafts. But that’s not all that it can do, mostly, alloy steels are used in the automotive industry and aircraft construction and components. This type of steel is also tempered and quenched almost at any rate to obtain high strength and toughness.
But what makes alloy steel so special? This type of steel has undergone alloying using a variety of elements in levels between 1% and 50% in weight to further enhance mechanical properties.
Important elements are obtained in these metals like nickel, magnesium, molybdenum, chromium, aluminum, and vanadium as soon as the material is tempered and quenched to help bring out its best quality.
The elements that are added to this steel help enhance hardenability which enables these steels to harden their depth thereby ensuring the toughness and strength of the full section of the forged component after heat treatment which makes it a clear standout when compared to other types of metals and steel.
Alloy steels with carbon levels of medium to higher rates that are difficult to weld. But, if carbon is reduced to 1% to 3% as alloy metals can achieve greater formability and weldability thereby strengthening the material.
We extend our inventory of alloy steels that are available in varying sizes, grades, shapes, and forms. These engineering alloys are capable of heat treatment for an extensive range of mechanical properties. At O’Hare Precision Metals, we produce alloy steels and centerless ground bar supplies that are forged and machined to a near-perfect dimension and tight tolerances.
As expert alloy steel and centerless ground bar supplier, the quality of our production is always tested and inspected in terms of quality from the very start of the process up until it’s finished, just so that we can always meet the customer’s criteria and requests when they need it.
