What is EN1A bright bar?
EN1A (also known as BS 970 230M07) is bright Mild Steel noted for its low carbon content. This Steel is especially good for free cutting, where a large volume of products are required. It can be formed by rolling or drawing and the machining of EN1A is fine of both automatic and CNC machines.
Can you harden EN1A?
EN1A can be tempered at 180-210 °C (356 °F- 410 °F) then should be left to cool in air. The Mild Steel can be hardened at 780-800 °C (1436 °F- 1472 °F) then quenched in oil or water
Applications of EN1A bright bars:
EN1A can be used in a broad range of commercial applications which include:
• Control linkages, shafts, low stress hubs, casings and handles.
• Brake hose ends, hydraulic parts.
• Brake pistons, wheel nuts and inserts.
• Gearbox components (if case-hardened)
• Padlock shackles, vice jaws.
• Studs, nuts and bolts.
The term Mild Steel applies to all low carbon steel that does not contain any alloying elements in its makeup and has a carbon content that does not exceed 0.25%. The term “Mild” is used to cover a wide range of specifications and forms for a variety of Steel.
Mild Steel is used in mechanical engineering applications for parts that will not be subject to high stress.
When in its bright cold drawn condition the steel is able to endure higher levels of stress, particularly on smaller diameters.
Compared to regular mild Steel, bright mild steel provides tighter sectional tolerances, increased straightness, and a much cleaner surface. The main advantage of cold drawn Steel is that Steel can be brought closer to the finished machine size, providing reduces machining costs. Another benefit of bright Steel bars is a marked increase in physical strength over hot rolled bars of the same section.
EN1A (also known as BS 970 230M07) is bright Mild Steel noted for its low carbon content. This Steel is especially good for free cutting, where a large volume of products are required.
It can be formed by rolling or drawing and the machining of EN1A is fine of both automatic and CNC machines.
Carbonisation of EN1A bright Mild Steel takes place at 900-950 °C (1652 °F- 1742 °F) then it is furnace or air cooled.
EN1A can be tempered at 180-210 °C (356 °F- 410 °F) then should be left to cool in air.
The Mild Steel can be hardened at 780-800 °C (1436 °F- 1472 °F) then quenched in oil or water. However, this is difficult to do with EN1A and is not recommended.
Welding EN1A Steel
Due to the low carbon content of EN1A it is not recommended that this Mild Steel is used for welding.
What is bright bar used for?
Bright bars are used making conveyor shafts. Bright steel bars are massively used in producing mechanical parts owing to its paramount properties in mechanical and dimensional fields. These bars can be fabricated into any other customized shape, according to the demand of clients.
EN1A is a very popular grade of low carbon-manganese free cutting steel, which is most suitable for the manufacture of repetition turned components, such as nuts, bolts, hydraulic fittings and studs, particularly where intricate drilling and machining operations are involved. It can be case-hardened, producing components with enhanced wear resistance. EN1A, also known as 230M07. EN1A is low carbon mild steel. Properties: free cutting, suitable for machining using both automatic and CNC machines. Available in square, round, flat or hexagon form.
