Substances having metallic properties and being composed of two or more chemical elements of which at least one is a metal.
- stainless steels
Stainless steels possess high strength, heat resistance, excellent workability and erosion resistance. Four general classes have been developed to cover a range of mechanical and physical properties for particular applications. The four classes are: the austenitic types of the chromium-nickel-manganese 200 series and the chromium-nickel 300 series; the martensitic types of the chromium, hardenable 400 series; the chromium, nonhardenable 400-series ferritic types; and the precipitation-hardening type of chromium-nickel alloys with additional elements that are hardenable by solution treating and aging.
On a rotating tool, the portion of the tool body that joins the lands. Web is thicker at the shank end, relative to the point end, providing maximum torsional strength.
The DC160 carbide drill features exceptional positioning accuracy. This is achieved with its innovative thin web at the point and rapid guidance in the hole due to the advanced positioning of the double margins. The drill’s unique point geometry, deeper chip gash and the new coating lead to a universal applicability in steels, stainless steels, aluminums and super alloys such as Inconel and Titanium alloys with exceptional tool life.
