We are offering EN8 Steel Round Bar.
It is widely used for applications where better properties than mild steel are required but the expense of an alloy steel is not justified.
It is used for forgings and general engineering parts—for example, dynamo and motor shafts, heat-treated bolts, crankshafts, connecting rods, driving rings and flanges, railway couplings, axles, brackets, housings, miscellaneous gun carriage, and small arms parts not subjected to high stress or severe wear.
Owing to its low hardenability, its use in the hardened and tempered condition is not recommended for large masses as the improvement in mechanical properties over the normalized condition is insufficient in such cases to justify the additional processes required.
These steels can be surface hardened by flame or induction methods suitable for general gearing and parts not subject to high stresses.
