CK45 High Carbon Steel Coil for Automotive and Industrial Applications

Product Description and Application Cases

Chemical Composition Characteristics: CK45 steel is known for its high carbon content, which provides excellent hardness and strength. The precise chemical makeup includes a significant proportion of carbon (0.42%-0.50%), manganese (0.50%-0.80%), and silicon (0.17%-0.37%), contributing to its durability and resistance to wear and tear.

Physical Performance Characteristics:

  • Hardness: CK45 steel offers superior hardness due to its high carbon content, making it ideal for wear-resistant applications.
  • Tensile Strength: The material exhibits remarkable tensile strength, making it suitable for components subjected to high stress.
  • Ductility: Despite its hardness, CK45 steel maintains a level of ductility, allowing it to be formed into various shapes and sizes without cracking.
  • Heat Treatment: The steel is heat-treatable, which allows for further enhancement of its mechanical properties.

Manufacturing Process: CK45 steel coils are produced through an intricate process involving hot rolling, followed by cold drawing or precision rolling. This ensures a uniform structure and optimal physical properties. The material is typically annealed to achieve a balance of toughness and machinability.

Primary Applications:

  • Automotive Industry: Used in the manufacturing of shafts, axles, and other components requiring high strength and wear resistance.
  • Construction: Ideal for building frameworks and structural components due to its excellent mechanical properties.
  • Machinery: Widely used in making parts like gears, spindles, and pins that need to withstand high mechanical stress.
  • Tooling: Suitable for creating tools that require a high degree of hardness and durability.

Case Study: A leading automotive manufacturer incorporated CK45 steel in the production of their high-performance crankshafts. The material’s high tensile strength and superior hardness contributed to the durability and longevity of the crankshafts, reducing maintenance costs and improving vehicle performance.
