Start Forging Temperature
Finish Forging Temperature
Annealing 800 to 850°C Slow controlled cooling in furnace at a rate of 10 to 20°C/hr down to approx. 600°C, further cooling in air. Hardness after annealing: max. 255 HB.
Stress Relieving 650 to 700°C Slow cooling in furnace; intended to relieve stresses set up by extensive machining, or incomplex shapes. After through heating, hold in neutral atmosphere for 1 to 2 hours.
Hardening 1020 to 1040°C Complex shapes/air, simple shapes/airblast, oil, salt bath from (220 to 250°C or 500 to 550°C). Holding time after temperature equalization: 15 to 30 minutes. Obtainable hardness: 63 - 65 HRC.
Tempering Slow heating to tempering temperature immediately after hardening/time in furnace 1hour for each 20 mm of work piece thickness, but at least 2 hours/cooling in air. For average hardness figures to be obtained, please refer to the tempering chart. For certain cases we recommend to reduce tempering temperature and increase holding time. For certain applications requiring improved retention of hardness, a nitriding treatment is recommended .
