DIN1.6587/18CrNiMo7-6 steel Manufacturer and Exporter,supplied with round,square,flat,block,and shaft etc.DIN1.6587/18CrNiMo7-6 is a low carbon,case hardening (carburizing) steel which contains 1.8% chromium 每 nickel 每 molybdenum as strengthening agents as per EN 10084. Characterised by high core strength and toughness in medium to large sections with case hardness up to Rc62 when carburized,
Alloy steel 18CrNiMo7-6 is a grade consisting of the addition of chromium, nickel, molybdenum and coal with a range characteristic for all carburizing grades. 1.6587 materials, unlike other simple steel grades, can be used for much larger sizes and loads. This grade of steel is used for heavy-duty parts and components subjected to high pressures and highly variable speed of operation. Materials and derivatives are used for the production of special bearings, bolts, gears, shafts, or rack-and-pinions. They are related grades of steel according to UNI standards, having slightly narrowed content of Chromium, Nickel and Molybdenum.
hardened and tempered,and it is also used in area of heavy and high strained gear parts with high demands on toughness at core tensile of 1050每1350N/mm2.DIN1.6587/18CrNiMo7-6 is same as 17CrNiMo6 steel,generally supplied in the annealed condition with a maximum brinell hardness of 229 (Rc22).

Severely stressed components for mechanical engineering and automobile industry, gear for mining, cement plants, power plants, mobile cranes and earth-moving equipment, paper mill, sugar mill, marine, wind gear, railway systems, oil platform, etc.
