Our offered Product range includes Alloy, Alloy Tube, Alloy Bar Tube, alloy bar and CARBON Bar.
Castle Metals stocks a wide range of Alloy 4140 plate distributed globally from distribution centers in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, U.K, Singapore, and Shanghai. When phone rings with 4140 plate inquiries, many customers also tell us they are overwhelmed with supply chain complexity. Where it makes sense, Castle Metals can simplify customers' inbound network and reduce customers' total cost of ownership. Alloy 4140 (AISI 4140) is one of the most popular direct hardening Cr-Mo alloy steel plates that have the ability to develop an extensive range of hardness and strength. Alloying elements and thermal treatments, such as quenching and tempering, greatly influence the hardness and strength of the steel. Alloy 4140 plate is widely used for general purpose industrial machining. Welding and forming of this steel plate should be avoided. It is best utilized wherever high resistance to fatigue and or impact is necessary.
Castle Metals stocks a wide range of Alloy 4140 in bar distributed globally from distribution centers in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, U.K, Singapore, and Shanghai. Customers calling for 4140 a lot of times are upset about dealing with fluctuations in their build schedules. Sometimes, we find that custom stocking programs help customers react faster to changes. Alloy 4140 is a direct hardening alloy that can be quenched and tempered to obtain a wide range of hardness, ductility and strength levels. These results are influenced by both the thermal treatment applied and the alloying elements present. The Purecut® series offers customers the opportunity to improve machinability with the addition of Bismuth. Bismuth steels will machine equal to leaded steels without any of the environmental problems. E4140 Aircraft Quality is a chrome-moly alloy produced in Electric Furnaces and Vacuum Degassed. When quenched and tempered, it is a relatively deep hardening steel. This strong alloy is used for its good hardness penetration and hardness uniformity. Its high machinability and ability to maintain its properties at high temperatures make this alloy useful in many industries.
Castle Metals stocks Alloy 4150 in rounds, squares and flats throughout distribution network, which spans the United States, Mexico, Canada, France, U.K, Singapore, and Shanghai. When customers call us about 4150, sometimes we also hear about their struggles achieving specific material properties. When Castle hears this, delivering custom material properties by thermal or mechanical treatment can be a solution we discuss with you. Alloy 4150 is a direct hardening alloy which allows flame and induction hardening. Direct Hardening alloys can be quenched and tempered to obtain a wide range of hardness, ductility, and strength levels while also being able to resist stress. Alloy 4150 develops good hardness and uniform strength while also being easy to machine. The Telcut 50® Alloy is the same as Alloy 4150 but with a double machining additive. It is used for heavily machined applications like screw machine parts and has a machinability rating of 100%. Lower cycle times, less tool wear, better surface finish, and improved productivity are achieved with no sacrifice in mechanical properties or heat treat response. This strong alloy is used for its good hardness penetration and hardness uniformity. Its high machinability and ability to maintain its properties at high temperatures make this alloy useful in many industries.
Castle Metals stocks Alloy E6150 in rounds throughout out its distribution network, which spans the United States, Mexico, Canada, France, U.K, Singapore, and Shanghai. When customers call us about E6150, sometimes they say they are worried about what their materials management process is really costing them. Castle can perform a cost of possession analysis for these customers, if it makes sense. Alloy E6150 is a chrome-moly alloy with good ductility. It is a popular aircraft quality grade that is commonly used in applications where through hardening is needed. E6150 shows great resistance to shock and abrasion in the heat treated condition.
Castle Metals stocks a wide range of Carbon 1144 bar. In addition to the U.S. and Canada, we warehouse inventory in Mexico, U.K, France, Singapore, and Shanghai. Customers calling us for 1144 a lot of times are struggling with production issues. So they also ask if Castle can process and make semi-finished parts. Anything that assists customers in focusing on their core business is usually something that Castle Metals wants to with you on. Carbon 1144 is a medium carbon, resulphurized steel with free-machining qualities. It contains higher carbon than 1141 or 1045 resulting in better heat treatability. Its high sulfur content results in good machinability while its Carbon and Manganese content cause good mechanical properties on cold drawing. With heavy draft cold drawing followed by stress relieving, even higher mechanical properties can be achieved with ASTM A311B, LaSalle's Stressproof® and Fatigue-Proof®. Carbon 1144 is perfect for applications requiring considerable machining at higher strength levels.
Castle Metals stocks a wide range of 6061 Aluminum in bar and plate distributed globally from distribution centers in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, U.K, Singapore, and Shanghai. Customers calling for 6061 Aluminum a lot of times are also pressured with manufacturing cost management. Sometimes, as we go deeper with Lean Process techniques we can surface easy wins that help customers exceed their cost management objectives.6061 Aluminum is the most versatile heat treatable aluminum alloy. It has excellent corrosion resistance with good formability. It has strength equivalent to mild steel making it a very popular general purpose alloy. It is hardenable by heat treating.
