Free Cutting Steel

Add sulfur, manganese or lead into carbon steel. During machining, these chemical elements can promote the machining performance to form a small and short curl radius, which is easy to eliminate. Not only reduce the wear of knife, but also reduce the surface roughness and improve the tool life.

Free cutting steel is mainly used for automatic lathe processing to produce parts with deep processing, high precision and high surface finish requirements, such as printer shaft, valve core, screw and nut, pipe joint, lighting instrument, watch parts, automobile parts, etc.

Additional Information

Diversity of shapes and specifications: By designing different shapes of molds, free-cutting steels with different cross-sectional shapes and different specifications and tolerances are cold drawn. Angles can be right or rounded.

High Accuracy: Use high-quality carbide molds to ensure accurate and uniform tolerances.

Smooth surface: The advanced cold extrusion process makes the surface of free-cutting steel products smooth and bright.

A lot of material saving: The cold drawing process is to cold-extrude and deform the raw materials to achieve the required shape, specifications and tolerances. The loss of raw materials is very small. Compared with the materials consumed by traditional lathe machining, the materials saved by free cutting steel And time is very considerable, especially when the amount of material is large, the material cost saving is more significant.

Processing time and processing machinery saving: due to accurate precision and good surface condition, free-cutting steel products can be used directly, such as spraying, sanding, bending, drilling, or direct electroplating after fine drawing according to actual requirements, saving a lot of Machining time and saving the cost of configuring the machining machinery.


Mainly used for automatic cutting machine tools to process fasteners and standard parts, such as stud bolts, screws, nuts, pipe joints, spring seats, etc.;

Electrical product components: motor shaft, fan shaft, sewing machine shaft, etc.;

Furniture: especially export metal furniture, such as coffee table, chair, outdoor furniture;

Metal utensils: garden tools, grill grids, screwdrivers, anti-theft locks, etc.;

Auto, motorcycle spare parts, etc.
