Steel casting


Steel is an iron alloy, whose most important element is carbon. The pouring of liquid steel into fireproof moulds is called steel casting. Depending on the kind of steel used, the material steel can be given a wide range of variable characteristics.

If it matters:

Non-alloyed steel casting


Non-alloyed steel castings comprise all those steel casting materials in which the content of their most important element carbon is less than 0,7%. Further elements are silicon and manganese, which serve for deoxidation.

Non-alloyed steel casting is used when parts are under extreme pressure and when the standard cast iron (grey cast iron) would be overstrained.

With a carbon content of less than 0,2%, non-alloyed steel casting components can also be easily welded. That’s what distinguishes the material from the modern cast iron material nodular cast iron, which is difficult to weld because of its high carbon content.

Resists wind and weather

Non-corrosive steel casting


Non-corrosive steel casting is a material with a chrome content of more than 12 %. Many of these materials also have a nickel content of more than 8%. Thus, these products are well protected against corrosion.

Non-corrosive steel casting is mainly used when components are exposed to specific environmental influences or chemical impacts of acids, lyes or saline solutions.

Parts made of non-corrosive steel casting are weldable and can well be machined.

Heat-resistant steel casting


By heat-resistant steel-casting we understand iron materials that can withstand temperatures of more than 600 degrees. Chrome and nickel are their main alloy elements. Parts made of heat-resistant steel casting are weldable and can be processed by machining.

Due to its good resistance to high temperatures, heat-resistant steel casting is e.g. used for parts of annealing furnaces, for grate bars in sinter plants and combustion plants.

High-tensile and tenacious

Quenched and tempered steel casting


Steel materials which show more tensile strength and a higher yield point than non-alloyed castings are called quenched and tempered steel. Their main alloy-elements are chrome, nickel, molybdenum, manganese and vanadium. Their carbon content lies between 0,25% and 0,42%. In this way the fine tuning of strength properties in combination with the two-step heat treatment is achieved.

These materials are only partly weldable, but they are very well suited for highly stressed parts.
