Alloy steels are types of steel that have been combined with an additional element to improve the mechanical properties or characteristics based on the intended use. To be classified as alloy steel, the added element must make up between 1.0% and 50% of the total weight of the mixture. Common alloyants used when making alloy steels include elements like manganese (the most common), nickel, chromium, silicon and boron.
Depending on the alloyant used, alloy steels will have increased strength, hardness, toughness, wear resistance, corrosion resistance and much more compared to carbon steels. Because of that, this metal is highly useful for many industries like the automotive, aerospace, military, agricultural, and electronics industries.
CNC machined alloy steel components and parts are used with many different applications like:
