Steel casting


Steel casting

Steel casting are a specialized form of casting involving various types of steel. Steel castings are used when cast irons cannot deliver enough strength or shock resistance.Oberg, p. 1332]

Examples of items that are steel castings include: hydroelectric turbine wheels, forging presses, gears, railroad car frames, valve bodies, pump casings, mining machinery, marine equipment, and engine casings.

Steel castings are categorized into two general groups: carbons steel and alloy steel.

Alloy steel

Alloy steel castings are broken down into two categories: low-alloy steels and high-alloy steels. Low-alloy steels contain less than 8% alloying content and high-alloy steels have 8% or more.
