Common materials of cast steel

First. the characteristics and applications of ordinary carbon cast steel

Ordinary carbon cast steel is a basic casting material, mainly composed of carbon and iron two elements, of which the carbon content is usually controlled below 2%. This material is widely recognized for its high strength and hardness, making it ideal for manufacturing a wide range of mechanical parts, heavy construction machinery, ships, and vehicles. However, the toughness of ordinary carbon cast steel is relatively poor, which limits its use in some applications requiring higher toughness. In addition, when the ambient temperature rises, ordinary carbon cast steel is prone to deformation, so its performance may be affected under high temperature working conditions, and it is not recommended to use in this environment.

Second. the advantages and uses of alloy cast steel

Alloy cast steel by incorporating other elements, such as chromium, cobalt, molybdenum, manganese, nickel, etc., on the basis of carbon and iron, thus significantly improving the mechanical properties and wear resistance of the material. The addition of these elements makes the alloy cast steel not only have higher strength and toughness, but also have good wear resistance and corrosion resistance. Therefore, alloy cast steel has been widely used in the manufacturing of high-end equipment and process equipment in aviation, rail transit, petrochemical, metallurgy and other industries with high requirements.

Third. the performance and wide application of stainless steel

Stainless steel, also known as corrosion resistant steel, is a kind of steel with chromium, nickel and molybdenum as the main alloying elements. This material is known for its excellent corrosion resistance, heat resistance and mechanical properties, while it also has good toughness and plasticity. These characteristics make stainless steel widely used in food processing, aviation, Marine engineering, chemical industry, construction and other fields, especially in the need for long-term resistance to corrosion and high temperature environments.

Fourth. the characteristics and application fields of high manganese steel

High manganese steel is a special casting material, its manganese content is as high as 11-14%, which makes it excellent in wear resistance, toughness, strength, and has good processing properties. Therefore, high manganese steel has become the first choice for wear-resistant materials in mining, cement, electric power and other industrial fields. In these areas, the wear resistance of equipment is key, and high manganese steel can meet these stringent requirements.

Sum up

To sum up, choosing the right cast steel material is crucial to the final performance and service life of the product. Different cast steel materials have different performance characteristics and scope of application, so in the design and manufacturing process, should be carefully selected according to the specific application scenarios and performance requirements. With the right choice of materials, you can ensure that the product can perform at its best in the environment it serves, thereby extending its service life and improving its overall efficiency.
