Traditional ‘Wear-and-Tear’ Precision Casting Components

Crafted from iron and carbon fused together, carbon steel is the smart choice for products needed in strength and durability. Depending on the carbon-level, most steel works with heat treatment. Carbon steel is also relatively inexpensive, proving its worth several times over.

Whether you need electrical components, architectural pieces, or other industrial elements, Quality Castings provides all of the above. Look to our varied services for investment casting, including tooling, CNC machining, part design, and much more.

Varying Degrees of Carbon Steel  

Ranging from low to ultra-high levels of carbon, our steel material works with all sorts of shapes, sizes, and tolerances. Depending on how much strength and malleability your component requires, consider our offered types of carbon steel:  

Low-carbon – not as strong and easily forms ‘stretch marks’

Medium-carbon – strong enough in durability and great for large components

High-carbon – super strong and perfect for supportive components

Ultra-high-carbon – extremely hard, but must be handled with care

Alloy Advantages & Disadvantages

Carbon steel brings both benefits and disadvantages when crafting precision components. Be sure to know which properties are needed most for your casted piece.

The steel material includes benefits such as:

  • Stronger with heat treatment
  • Inexpensive
  • Easily malleable
  • Relentlessly durable

 Minor setbacks include: 

  • Brittle
  • Rusts easily

Endless Applications for Carbon Steel
