Typical Metal Grades-
EN1A– very popular grade for the manufacturing of turned components.
EN8– This is slightly harder than En1a and typically used for the manufacture of general purpose axles, shafts, nuts & bolts.
EN24T– A hardening alloy steel which is most suitable to manufacture heavy duty axles, shafts, gears, bolts & studs.
Freecutting Steel– Ideal where high degrees of machining are involved as it increases machining speeds and reduces tool wear, it can also be easily welded.
Lead Steel– The lead acts as a lubricant between the cutting tool and workpiece giving a longer tool life but is no good if the finished workpiece is to be welded.
Black Steel– This comes in 6metre lengths and is typically used for making gates, railings & other fabrication parts.
