Free cutting cold drawn steels
What kind of free cutting cold drawn steels does AUSA supply?
AUSA works with the different grades of free cutting cold drawn steels. The properties, applications, chemical composition, equivalent standards, profiles and dimensions vary depending on the grade chosen.
Free cutting cold drawn steels characterize by their good chip removal and breaking.
Their machinability improves remarkably with the harshness provided by cold drawn (tensile strength of between 500-650 N/mm2).
They are particularly suitable for machined pieces in large series in automatic lathes.
Their most common applications are for manufacturing of screws, bolts, tips, nipples and washers.
