PROCESSING

A11 PM can be worked as follows:

GRINDING

During grinding, local heating of the surface, which may alter the temper, must be avoided. Grinding wheel manufacturers can furnish advice on the choice of grinding wheels.

SURFACE TREATMENT

The steel grade is a good substrate material for PVD and CVD coating. If nitriding is requested a small zone of 2- 15 μm is recommended. The steel grade can also be steam-tempered if so desired.
