We’re willing to deliver your parts anywhere. Our normal delivery area is from Petaluma (N) to San Jose (S), and from South San Francisco (W) to Livermore (E). However, we often deliver to Reno, Modesto, Sacramento, Fresno, Santa Rosa and Morgan Hill.
Good tool steels to use with dies are A-2, D-2, or S-7.
We typically run tool steel twice a week, on Monday and Wednesday nights. If you absolutely, positively need it run overnight, we will help you. Call us.
We feel nitralloy is the best materials for Nitriding. Feel free to contact us to learn about other alternatives we can use.
There are three steps for hardening steel, which are heating, quenching and tempering. Those same steps are used for aluminum also.
The best metals for carburizing are 8620 and 9310 steel.
A metallurgist focuses primarily on heavy and light metals. A materials engineer focuses on metals, plastics, and other materials. Generally speaking, the degree of “Metallurgist” has been replaced by the degree of “Materials Engineer” or “Materials Scientist” at most colleges.
Yes, we have both a metallurgist and a materials engineer you can talk with. We also have two industrial engineers, and a California-registered professional engineer.
Generally it may. There are many reasons that material changes size or distorts, but we’ll need more information to give you an exact answer.
Wear resistance applications include types of Case Hardening such as nitriding and carburizing. A few other wear resistance applications like Induction Hardening and Carbonitriding are also ways to harden the surface of a material.
