Alloy steel is steel that, along with usual impurities (carbon, silicon, manganese, sulphur, phosphorus), contains specifically introduced alloying elements silicon and manganese in large amounts. If the total content of alloying elements reaches the range of 2.5%, then such a steel is considered to be low-alloy one, if the content reaches the range from 2.5 to 10%, a steel is intermediate-alloy, and when the content reaches more than 10% — high-alloy. Alloying elements include chromium, nickel, molybdenum, tungsten, vanadium, manganese and titanium. Corrosion-resistant steels are applied in manufacture of turbine blades, hydraulic pump valves, gears, items of everyday use, and in manufacture of surgeon, cutting and measuring tools.
Performance of alloy-treated steel electrolytic-plasma treatment and polishing:
Recommended processing time for alloy-treated steel polishing — 180 sec.
Grinding and deburring speed — 30 sec.
Average time to reduce the roughness value by 1 class — 75 sec.
The number of polishing cycles before changing the electrolyte — 720.
