1.8550 (34CrAlNi7-10) directly from stock & cut to your required dimensions!
1.8550 is used as nitriding steel for quenched and tempered parts of machinery and is frequently used in automotive industry. This material resists a high wear stress. Many of these components will be nitrided.
1.8550 exhibits bad weldability.
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.
