SCM430 is a chromium-molybdenum alloy steel as per Japan Standard. JIS SCM430 steel contains a lower carbon content but provides better weldability comparing with SCM440 Steel. SCM430 round bar is frequently applied to the gas & oil area.Typical applications include components such as valve bodies,pumps and hydraulic cylinder fittings like cylinder rod.
SCM430 Round Bar Forging
Forging temperature of AISI 4130 steel should be carried out between 950℃-1200℃,The lower the forging-ending temperature ,the finer the grain size .Hold suitable time for the steel to be uinformly heated before forge, but don’t forge below 950℃.AISI 4130 steel should be cooled as slowly as possible after forged.
SCM430 Round Bar Heat Treatment
AISI 4130 steel can be annealed to relieve stress after forging ,and obtain a good structure suitable for machining,Annealing temperature should be carried out between 800℃-850℃, hold suitable time for the steel to be heated uniformly. Cool slowly in the furnace.
Normalizing is used to refine the structure of forgings that might have cooled non-uniformly after forged,and considered as a conditioning treatment before final heat treatment.Normalizing temperature for AISI 4130 steel should be carried out between 880℃-900℃. hold suitable time for the steel to be uniformly heated to complete the ferrite to austenite transformation.Cool in still air.
Tempering is usually carried out to relieve stresses from the hardening process, and will optimize hardness and mechanical properties. The actual tempering temperature will be chosen to meet the required properties.Heat the AISI 4130 carefully to a suitable temperature ,usually between 400℃-570℃, soak at the temperature for 2 hours per 25mm of ruling section, then cool in air.The lower the tempering temperature the greater the strength. However, Tempering between 250-375°C is not advised as tempering within this range will seriously reduce the impact value.
Hardening of SCM430 Round Bar
This heat treatment will obtain martensite structure after quenched,it will increase the surface hardness and strength.AISI 4130 steel should be carried out between 870℃-890℃, hold suitable time for the steel to be thoroughly heated, then quench in oil, or water.Tempering should be followed immediately after quenched.
