High Strength Steels
As a leader in P/M Sinter-Hardening technology, ASM processes a variety of prealloyed and admixed steel grades. Material specifications are formulated to meet product design criteria for wear resistance, mechanical performance and dimensional precision. ASM specializes in tough-duty gear applications utilizing various combinations of pre-alloyed Mn, Mo and Cr with admixed C, Ni or Cu. These alloys respond well to sinter hardening which improves dimensional accuracy as compared to post-sinter heat treating processes.
ASM also processes a variety of gear applications using lower alloy materials and a secondary heat treating process. Typical applications for these gear components include transfer cases, steering systems, modular camshafts, flywheels and engine crank gears
