Structural steel 42CrMo4 is a high strength steel with excellent mechanical properties. The steel is alloyed with chromium and molybdenum, which allows it to achieve high strength, hardness and wear resistance. It is one of the most commonly used structural steels in industry.
The production of 42CrMo4 structural steel is carried out in the same way as for other steels. The raw steel is melted in a furnace at high temperatures and then purified to remove impurities and reduce the carbon and other elements. The steel is then alloyed with chromium and molybdenum, which improves its mechanical properties.
After cleaning and alloying, the steel is rolled into various forms such as bars, plates and tubes. This process is carried out at high temperatures to achieve the desired shape and size. To increase strength and hardness, it is a good idea to expose the steel to annealing a hardening .
It is important to remember that 42CrMo4 structural steel contains a higher content of carbon and other alloying elements than other structural steels. Therefore, it is important to follow safety procedures and handle it with care. If you are not sure how to do this, do not hesitate to contact us without obligation.
