416 Stainless Steel Condition T is a chromium steel alloy, and it is know as the most machinable stainless steel.
416 Stainless Steel Cond T is regarded as the first of the free-machining stainless steels. Free-machining steel refers to steel that breaks off into chips when machined, instead of longer pieces. This eliminates the risk of entanglement in the machine, and allows the automation of operations.
These round bars typically have the widest range of sizes and grades since it is used in almost all industrial and manufacturing applications. Different round bars are used in varying fields, particularly ships, automobiles, aircraft, construction, industrial machines, and civil engineering. They should possess high durability and excellent mechanical properties such as tough strength, corrosion resistance, and ductility.
416 Stainless Steel Cond T Round Bars are used in particular applications that involve corrosive conditions.
Valves, machine parts, bolts, valve parts, screws, pistons, pump rods, cutlery, and food industry machine parts are all examples of products made with this material. Among all stainless steel materials, 416 Cond T possesses the highest percentage of machinability property that can be improved by additional sulphur content.
Advance Grinding Services advises that this bar is used for parts where resistance to oxidation is required, such as compressor shrouds. It is useful at relatively high temperatures only when there are low stresses. The superior resistance to corrosion of 416 Cond T round bar can be obtained by polishing and hardening. 416 Cond T has a typical hardness of 26-32 RC, and these materials can be formed and drawn in an annealed condition.
