1.2316 (X38CrMo16) directly from stock & cut to your required dimensions!
This steel 1.2316 is mainly used for plastic injection molds, in connection with chemically aggressive and acidic plastics such as thermoplastics and for PVC-arminoplastics, extrusion tools, compressor parts and for special machine parts in the food industry.
1.2316 is popularly known as AISI 420.
quenched and tempered max. 325 HB
Machinability: 4 (1 = very bad - 10 = good)
Corrosion class: 2-3 (0 = weak - 5 = good)
Flat, forged, quenched and tempered
The processing with the saw is a mechanical processing of the material, which results in a significantly lower unintended deformation and increased hardness for the existing structure, such as the thermal cutting.
Thus, the machined workpiece has a homogeneous structure even at the edge, which does not change in the continuation of the material.
This circumstance allows immediate finishing of the workpiece with milling or drilling . So it is not necessary to anneal the material or make a similar operation beforehand.
