    Mar 13, 2007 · To heat treat 4140, You need to heat it to 1550 F. and hold it at that temperature for one hour per inch of thickness. So if your part is 1/2 thick, then a half hour is good. At 1550 the part will be very red and Non-magnetic (just use a magnet if you are unsure of the temp ?)Some results are removed in response to a notice of local law requirement. For more information, please see here.

    Jun 30, 2006 · Heat-Treating & Hardening 4140 Steel. 4140 is not case hardened by carburizing but it is frequently induction hardened to the hardness and depth you desire and beyond. If you want the core to be softer you can first normalize, or quench & temper in a furnace to the desired lower hardness level. This treatment also prepares the near surface for optimum induction hardening response.

  9. 4140 heat treatment, BladeForums.com

    Dec 11, 2015 · My suggestion would be to use 5160 instead of 4140. 4140 is designed for toughness. While it would not chip, it would have a poor edge retention. Anvils and hammers are good uses of 4140. Knives and cleavers are a good use of 5160.

  10. Heat Treating a 4140 axle shaft - Finishing

    Heat Treating a 4140 axle shaft. It doesn't sound very fun, trying to get foil off a shaft that is at 1500F. ;) I had thought about a 40 gallon quench tank made out of an oil drum cut in half on its length. I could make a cover with a slot, just roll the shaft into the slot and it would fall in.

  11. 4130 and 4140 Heat Treatments - Industrial Heating

    Jun 08, 2011 · For 4130 steel, the recommended heat treatment [1] consists of heating to austenitizing temperature, typically 1600°F (870°C), followed by water quenching. Water quenching will achieve a higher as-quenched hardness than oil quenching.

  12. 4140 cracking issue - Heat Treating, general discussion ...

    Jun 13, 2012 · It takes time; sometimes a lot of time to heat treat alloys. I just finished making and heat treating punches and dies for a Whitney 5 ton bench press out of A2 alloy. Started the heat treatment at 9:00 AM and finished at 3:30 PM. Pre-heat at 1200 F for 10 minutes. Then soak at 1750 F for 40 minutes. Air cool for an hour to 150 F.

  13. Heat Treating Steel - Hardening and Tempering

    See Heat Treating 4140 Hammer Dies Includes temper table. Annealing is the softening of metal by heat treatment. Ferrous metals are annealed by heating to just above the A3 point (a point above non-magnetic that varies with the carbon content), and then cooling slowly.

  15. Heat treating - Wikipedia

    Heat treatment involves the use of heating or chilling, normally to extreme temperatures, to achieve the desired result such as hardening or softening of a material. Heat treatment techniques include annealing , case hardening , precipitation strengthening , tempering , carburizing , normalizing and quenching .

  16. How To Weld 4140 Steel, WELDING ANSWERS

    I wasnt sure if there were any suggestion as how to accomplish this. Also there is a possibility that the 4140 is HT, it says it requires post weld heat treat but the 514 has a disclaimer on the cert. that recommends against any post weld heat treat. Thoughts?

  17. Predicting Size Change from Heat Treatment : Production ...

    Aug 26, 2019 · D-2 is a transformation hardening tool steel that requires both a hardening and tempering step during the heat treating process. The dimensional changes on hardening (Figure 1) and tempering (Figure 2) should be added together when trying to estimate total size change.

    Jul 16, 2019 · I just read the 4140 pre hard thread and now I have a couple questions. Is the pre Hard the same thing as 4140 HT ? I've always thought it was but maybe I'm wrong ? What about HTSR ? is there another process involved with the HTSR or is stress relieving just a side benefit of the heat treat process 4140 heat treat processSome results are removed in response to a notice of local law requirement.

  23. Defects and Distortion in Heat-Treated Parts

    heat treatment provides a very poor impact strength and almost completely intergranu- lar fracture surface after impact failure. This phenomenon is termed burning. Burn- ing thus occurs at a higher temperature than overheating. If this occurs during forging, the forging will often break during cooling or subsequent heat treatment (Ref 4).
