AISI 8620 Suppliers - Alloy Steel 1.6523, SNCM220 Case Hardening SteelAISI 8620 is a low-nickel-chromium-molybdenum medium hardenability, case hadening (carburizing) steel, which generally supplied in the as rolled condition with a maximum brinell hardness of 280 (RC30).
ASTM 8620 Steel is characterised by good core strength and toughness in small to medium sections with case hardness up to Rc62 when carburized, hardened and tempered.
AISI 8620 Case Hardening Steel can also be used (uncarburised) as a high tensile steel, which when suitably hardened and tempered can be utilized for various applications requiring good tensile strength and reasonable toughness.
Pre hardened and tempered (uncarburized) Material 8620 can be further surface hardened by nitriding but will not respond satisfactorily to flame or induction hardening due to its low carbon content.
SAE 8620 steel (carburized) is used extensively by all industry sectors for light to medium stressed components and shafts requiring high surface wear resistance with reasonable core strength and impact properties.

Heat Treatment of ASTM 8620
AISI 8620 steel may be given a full anneal by heat to 820íŠ – 850íŠ, and hold until temperature is uniform throughout the section and cool in furnace or air cooled.
Tempering of heat treated and water quenched parts of 8620 steels (not carburized) is done at 400 F to 1300 F to improve case toughness with minimal effect on its hardness. This will also reduce the possibility of grinding cracks.
8620 steel will be austenitized at around 840°C – 870°C, and oil or water quenched depending upon section size and intricacy. Cool in Air or Oil required.
1675ºF (910ºC) and air cool. This is another method of improving machinability in 8620 material; normalizing might also be used prior to case hardening.
Machinability of SAE 8620 Material
The 8620 alloy steel is readily machined after heat treatment and/or carburizing, should be at a minimum so as not to impair the hardened case of the part. Machining may be done by conventional means prior to heat treatment – after carburizing machining is usually limited to grinding.
Welding of Alloy Steel 8620 Materials
The 8620 Alloy Steel may be welded as rolled condition by conventional methods, usually gas or arc welding.
Preheating at 400F is beneficial and subsequent heating after welding is recommended – consult the approved weld procedure for the method used. However, welding in the case hardened or through hardened condition is not recommended
