Free Cutting Steel

These steels are developed to offer good machinability. Due to the addition of S and Pb the chip length during cutting, drilling and turning is greatly reduced. This enables these materials to be processed unsupervised on CMC machines. Mechanical properties increase with increasing carbon concentration. Steel codes: in progress.
