Spray Forming of Homogeneous Bearing Steel of Minimized Distortion Potential
To minimize the distortion potential of bearing steels, 100Cr6 steel has been spray formed for the manufacture of ring shape components in this study. Structure characteristics of the spray formed bearing steel have been investigated. Evaluation of distortion of bearing components after machining and heat treatment have been made in comparison with continuous cast material. Spray forming has been approved to be an alternative approach to conventional continuous casting for the production of homogeneous 100Cr6 bearing steel of lower distortion potential.
