Spring steel

In the spring steel alloy, elements of silicon, manganese, chromium, vanadium and molybdenum are used in appropriate quantities and according to the properties of spring steels. Spring alloy steels have acceptable tensile strength.

This steel has anti-wear properties. The presence of silicon in spring steel increases the elasticity and the presence of chromium increases the strength and corrosion resistance.

The presence of elasticity in spring steel helps to be able to deform to a suitable level in conditions when the steel is under high pressure, and also this capability causes the tensile strength in these steels to increase significantly.

1.8159 spring alloy steel is used in the production process of multilayer springs – flat helix, torsion shaft springs and spring belts (belts up to 30 mm thick and round to 40 mm in diameter) and for high temperature work ( Up to about 300 ° C) is also suitable.

One of the disadvantages of 1.8159 steel is its very low welding capability due to its high carbon content and risk of cracking. But in contrast, this steel has a high hardness capability.

Ck75 spring alloy steel with standard number 1.1248 is used to provide springs with dimensional accuracy and high quality.
