Annealed Steel Advantages
Annealing is the process of heat treating steel to reduce the hardness of the metal. Annealed steel has increased ductility and reduced internal stress. The workability of this metal allows it to be formed into a number of different shapes without risk of cracking.
Annealed Steel Specifications
At Winco Stamping, we provide the most popular annealed steel alloys on the market in order to meet the needs of your business. These alloys include:
- AISI 1050 Annealed Steel is the most price-conscious annealed steel. This metal can easily be formed into a wide variety of shapes and it has the lowest carbon content of the annealed steel products we offer.
- AISI 1074/1075 Annealed Steel is a medium carbon content metal that boast a stronger and yet flexible composition, ideal for products that require significant strength and flexibility.
- AISI 1095 Annealed Steel boasts high elasticity and high carbon content. The steel has the ability to flex as needed while remaining durable.
Annealed Steel by Industry
Annealed steel is often used for the internal parts of lighting fixtures. Whether you need conduit parts, covers, or hooks annealed steel is a great choice to reduce overhead for many lighting products without sacrificing quality.
The flexibility of annealed steel makes it an ideal material for assembled and non assembled furniture hardware. While many metals could crack when bent to create the components needed to build furniture pieces, annealed steel can bend the specifications you require without sacrificing the structural integrity of the product.
Commercial kitchens and other restaurant products rely on annealed steel for the stamped components for commercial garbage disposal units, meat slicers and other food processing and disposal equipment.
Many metal components used for heavy equipment and machinery use annealed steel parts. This material can be bent to create the unique components used in this industry without fear of cracking. Road repair equipment, excavation vehicles and other industrial products rely on the strength and formability of annealed steel.
Annealed steel is often used to form agriculture products for manufacturer’s of irrigation products and farming machinery. The ability to form this material into the shapes necessary for water transportation and harvesting equipment make it the ideal choice for many companies.
Computer Mounting Systems
Mounting systems require conduit and fasteners that can not be formed out of traditional steel material. Annealed steel is the ideal metal for stamped computer mounting system parts due to its incredible flexibility. This metal is also a cost effective alternative to other flexible materials sometimes used in the production of mounting systems.
Other Industries Served
Annealed steel alloy is also a popular steel used for products in other industries including commercial security, commercial laundry, healthcare, and cabinetry.
