416 Stainless has the highest machinability of any stainless steel, available.
It has the highest machinability of any stainless steel, with an 85% machinability rating. The addition of sulfur causes the formation of manganese sulfide inclusions in most free-machining such as 416 Stainless. At the same time, it can improve the machinability of most of these steels.

When sulfur is added to 416 steel, it reduces its formability, weldability, and corrosion resistance to lower levels. Because of its excellent machinability and low cost, this type of steel can be used in highly tempered, hardened, and unhardened forms.
The use of 416 Stainless for welding in either the annealed or hardened and tempered condition is not generally recommended. This is due to its high sulphur content, which can result in hot cracking, or its hardening capability, which can result in cold cracking, respectively.
It is undoubtedly a big help in many industries because of its incredible characteristics. Shafts, nuts, gears, bolts are the common application of 416 Stainless.
