1.7225 (42CrMo4) | 1.7227 (42CrMoS4) directly from stock & cut to your required dimensions!
42CrMo4 | 1.7225 is a versatile heat-treated steel, which is characterized by its high strength and toughness. It is mainly used in mechanical engineering, and for vehicle and automotive use. Gear, crankshafts and connecting rods are manufactured from it.
42CrMo4 | 1.7225 is very difficult to weld and is therefore not suitable for welded structures. If welding is unavoidable, a heat treatment is recommend.

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.
