Material 4340: Steel Alloy Castings, Prototype for Nailer, Construction Hand Tools
Aero Metals Inc. produces steel cast components through the investment cast process up to 100 lbs in weight. Parts are produced in low to high volumes and comply with various certifications and requirements set by the customer and/or industry recognized worldwide standards, such as ASTM. Our facility is equipped with two spectrometers to accurately analyze alloys and ensure material chemistry.
Steel Casting Process
Carbon steel, low alloy steel, and tool steel castings are used in several industries and are widely used materials for a range of applications and environments. It is economical, accessible in numerous grades, and can be heat-treated to improve its yield and tensile strength; and, adjust hardness or ductility to the engineer’s application needs or desired outcome.
Aero Metals manufactures solutions to your component and in many situations it begins with choosing the right alloy. Our engineers will work with you and our on staff metallurgist to analyze your component’s function and balance it with the appropriate material. With investment casting, you have the most design freedom when it comes to alloy selection.
Here are some of the most common carbon, low alloy, and tool steels we cast:
Cast Carbon and Low Alloy Steel
- 1018, 1020, 1025, 1030, 1040, 1050
- 4130, 4140, 4330, 4340, 4620
- 52100, 6150
- 8615, 8620, 8630, 8640, 8650
Cast Tool Steels
- D-2, D-5
- M-2, M-4
- S-2, S-5, S-7
If you don’t see the alloy of your interest above, visit our investment casting alloys page for more material options. We have the ability to pour any “air melted” carbon, low alloy, and tool steel.
We Can Help You Find The Right Alloy For Your Needs
Contact us to have our resident metallurgist help in choosing an alloy for your project. We achieve this with the use of our onsite spectrometer giving you the ability to produce your own “specialty alloy” and allowing you to change the alloy chemistry to fit your application environment.
