Free cutting steel
We produce high-quality free cutting steels for exacting customers worldwide as a preliminary material for drawing, peeling and lathe turning. Our range of grades includes
- soft free cutting steel
- quenched and tempered free cutting steel
- case hardening free cutting steel
Individual requirement profiles can be fulfilled with our special variants. For special machining requirements, soft free cutting steels with Bi, Te and Se are available as well as combinations of these (TeBi, SeBi).
For the highest demands regarding leak tightness such as is required in common rail diesel technology and in steels for hydraulic components, HD steels (“pressuretight qualities”) are on offer which are manufactured according to the strictest tolerances in particular metallurgical processes.
On request, material datasheets with more detailed information are available for some individual materials (e.g. time-temperature diagrams, tempering diagrams).
