1.6587 (18CrNiMo7-6) directly from stock & cut to your required dimensions!
This steel grade is used for units with highest strain (toothed racks and gear parts)
quenched and tempered
Machinability: 4 (10 - good 1- bad)
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.
