SAE 1117 low carbon steel is a carbon steel alloy with high levels of manganese. These high levels of manganese add to the material’s strength. The benefits of 1117 include uniform and deep case hardening and increased machinability compared to 1018 steel.
Its tensile strength ranges from 82,000 to 92,000 pounds per square inch and its yield strength ranges from 72,000 to 82,000 pounds per square inch. Common applications of 1117 are gears, camshafts, and ratchets. E.J. Basler offers precision 1117 machined parts with superior quality, tolerances, and surface finish.
