17-4PH stainless steel properties are wide-ranging. First of all, the material is easy to machine and form. Additional stainless steel 17-4PH properties include:
Good corrosion resistance
Good ductility and toughness
Good resistance to stress corrosion cracking
High strength and hardness
The yield strength of 17-4PH stainless steel castings can vary up to 1000 MPa, and its hardness up to 45 HRC. Heat treating 17-4PH stainless steel gives it an array of mechanical properties for specific end uses.
You can find 17-4PH stainless steel castings in a variety of applications. This versatile material is used to make:
Landing gear parts
Bescast has had particular success casting 17-4PH stainless steel for parts like:
Backed by decades of experience, Bescast produces superior 17-4PH stainless steel castings. Our customers rely on our investment casting expertise to create components that withstand the harshest conditions. Read on to learn more about 17-4PH stainless steel and our capabilities.
17-4PH stainless steel is a martensitic precipitation-hardened stainless steel. It contains iron, chromium, copper and nickel. 17-4PH stainless steel castings have excellent corrosion resistance because of the high levels of chromium, copper and nickel. They also can have higher strength and hardness than 15-5PH stainless steel castings.
17-4PH stainless steel's machinability is good, although heat treating makes the material less machinable. At Bescast, machinability isn't an issue because our investment casting process produces near-net shape parts with superior surface finishes. Our components require few secondary operations.
Bescast provides a full suite of design, engineering and prototyping services. We use ProCAST software with finite element analysis (FEA) to simulate casting processes and ensure the best 17-4PH stainless steel castings for your application. Bescast also offers heat treating, welding and non-destructive testing. Our strong relationships with partners in tooling creation, core design and production, coatings, painting, inspection services and other special processes give our customers a competitive edge.
Our expert investment casting process takes full advantage of stainless steel 17-4PH capabilities to produce outstanding components for our customers. As their design-to-production cycles compress, our customers depend on Bescast to quickly design, engineer and manufacture 17-4PH stainless steel castings to conform to their exacting requirements.
