16MNCR5 It is an excellent case-hardening steel which combines the high hardness of the cement layer with an excellent core toughness. It is easily hot machinable and weldable. It can be supplied in rolled bars, peeled bars or drawn bars, in addition to forged bars. It is the most suitable among special steels for the manufacturing of mechanical elements such as pinions, racks, shafts, gears and universal joint.
