Steel used for machining

Low carbon steel (1020, 1018 and A36) Low or mild carbon steel contains 0.05 to 0.30% carbon. Most grades can be obtained as hot rolled or cold formed. 1018 and 1020 both have good machinability, though 1018 is more common than 1020. Mild steels are very common and are widely used for pins, chains, har […]
