Steel Castings -
Steel castings are especially adapted for parts
that must withstand wear, shocks or heavy loads.
They are stronger than either wrought iron or
cast iron or malleable iron and are very tough.
Their are two general types of steel castings,
carbon and alloy, which are described in greater
Steel castings can be heat treated to bring
about the diffusion of carbon or alloying
elements, softening, hardening, stress
relieving, toughening, improve machinability,
increase wear resistance, and removal of
hydrogen entrapped at the surface of the
casting. See Southwest Steel's Heat Treating web
page for more information.
