Case-hardening steel with very high resistance to wear and fracturing

Extremely uniform with high resistance

After complex forming, several parts must display very high wear and fracture resistance, even under continuous stress. Our case-hardening steel is the first choice in this regard. For example, the finger follower in combustion engines, which is constructed from case-hardening steel, transmits the opening and closing impulses sent by the camshaft to the valves several thousand times per minute.

In addition to excellent wear and fracture resistance, the precision manufacturing of parts constructed of case-hardening steel is a crucial factor in their functional reliability. We ensure that our products are manufactured with the tightest possible thickness and width tolerances – significantly tighter than the tolerances specified in industry standards. This greatly increases the uniformity of the formed product, which in turn increases our customers’ productivity.

Isotropy and minimal earing

Our products have a planar anisotropy of < 0.3, ideal for processes requiring case-hardening steels with virtually identical forming properties in all directions of the sheet plane. With an earing rate of < 1 percent, our products feature uniform wall thickness; a prerequisite for the production of rotationally symmetrical parts. We are happy to consult you on which case-hardening steel is most suited to your specific requirements.
