SAE 440 stainless steel is highly wear-resistant and very strong compared to other stainless steel alloys. Heat treatment is used to obtain this strength and hardness. This alloy also shows good resistance to mild acids and freshwater. Its temperature resistance is particular to the temperature it was tempered at as continued use at this temperature can lead to loss of strength.
Common applications for 440 stainless steel include chisels, knife blades, and rolling bearings. E.J. Basler offers precision 440 stainless steel machined parts with superior quality, tolerances, and surface finish.
The numerous advantages and benefits of 440 stainless steel make it a preferred material for precision CNC, Swiss, and other machining techniques. E.J. Basler can machine parts, components, and products using stainless steel for virtually any application or industry, including but not limited to the following:
