080M50 Steel (EN43B)
080M50 is a type of medium carbon steel containing carbon, manganese, silicon, phosphorus, and sulphur.
It also contains small amounts of other elements, such as chromium, nickel, and molybdenum. This steel grade is commonly used to produce gears, shafts, axles, and other mechanical parts that require high strength, toughness, and wear resistance. It is often heat-treated to improve its mechanical properties, such as hardness, tensile strength, and ductility.
- High tensile strength
- Relatively easy to machine
- High wear resistance
- High surface hardness
Generally, the material has a tensile strength ranging from 700 to 1000 MPa (megapascals) and a yield strength ranging from 550 to 800 MPa. 080M50 steel has good strength, which makes it suitable for applications that require high load-bearing capacity.
