Description

100Cr6 grade steel is a medium carbon steel offering moderate tensile strengths.

The material is capable of through hardening by quenching and tempering on limited sections but is more commonly supplied in the untreated or normalised condition.

Machinability similar to that of mild steel can be expected, however weldability is reduced.

Typical applications of 100Cr6 grade steel

  • Ball and roller bearings
  • Bearing rings
  • Connecting rods
  • Big end bushes
  • Lathe centres
  • Collets
  • Cams
  • Pawls.
  • Small hardened steel cold work rolls
  • Blanking and forming tools
  • Punches
  • Knurling tools
  • Gauges
  • Fuel nozzles
  • Shear blades
  • Bullet cores
  • Instrument pivots
  • Spindles
