Forgings is a nationwide supplier of exceptional forged products.
Whether your company is based regionally in Pennsylvania, New Jersey,
Delaware or nationally across the United States, Philadelphia Forgings
provides the high-quality forgings you need. One of the most important
materials included in our forged product line is alloy steel.
Properties of Alloy Steel Forgings
Alloy steels encompass a wide range of iron-based
metals which contain higher levels of chromium that do not exceed
3.99%. Metals that contain greater amounts of chromium are classified
either as tool steels or stainless steels. Alloy steels vary in their alloying elements
which determine the properties of a particular material.
Philadelphia Forgings provides the following
grade of alloy steel forging:
, 4150. Alloy steels 4130, 4140, and 4150 are all chromium-molybdenum
steels. The elements molybdenum and chromium are used to strengthen
these materials. Forgings made from these metals are tough with
high fatigue strengths.
8620, 8630, 9310. Alloys 4330, 4340, 8620, 8630, and 9310
contain chromium and molybdenum as well as nickel. The addition
of nickel makes these materials useful for applications involving
exposure to heat. Products forged from any of these materials can
undergo hardening by heat treatment as well as case hardening and
are known for good strength, toughness, and wear characteristics
in addition to fatigue strength.
Alloy 52100 is a low alloy steel which contains high levels of chromium
and carbon. These alloying elements allow 51200 forgings to be through
hardened as well as resistant to corrosion.
135. A low alloy steel, Nitralloy 135 is known
as a nitriding grade and is a good material for case hardening.
Products forged from this material exhibit high levels of resiliency
Philadelphia Forgings supplies high quality
forgings to customers around the United States. In addition to alloy
steel forgings, Philadelphia Forgings offers products in a number
of other materials including carbon
steel forgings and titanium
forgings. Please visit the Forging
