I Forge Iron

best use for EN 24 ( AISI/SAE 4340 )

Recommended Posts

Should be fine for hammers, punches, hotcuts, hardies, etc 


Do not forge the steel below 850-1100°C. After forging allow to cool slowly use as is or it hardens and tempers relatively easily, possible to flame/induction harden for case hardening type finish


EN24 was originally introduced for use in the motor vehicle and machine tool industries for gears, pinions, shafts, spindles and the like. Suitable to produce parts where good strength and fatigue resistance is called for.
