16MnCr5 Steel

16MnCr5 Steel Grade

16MnCr5 steel are alloyed case hardening engineering steels for parts which require core tensile strength of 800 – 1100 N/mm² and good wearing resistance. It is an engineering material typically used to manufacture piston bolts, camshafts, levers and other vehicle and mechanical engineering components.

We manufacture 16MnCr5 steel regularly from sizes 23.5mm to 80mm in rounds, 22mm to 63.5mm in bright bars and 55mm to 75mm RCS. Follow the link below for our

Size Range

We are supplier of  16MnCr5 steel to a number of companies in Mumbai, Pune (eg Chakan, Bhosari, Ranjangaon, etc), Aurangabad, Ahmednagar, Rajkot, Thane, Nagpur, etc.  Testing of 16MnCr5 is done by Ultrasound and MPI inspection methods.

We are also a manufacturer of 20MnCr5 and 16MnCr5/20MnCr5 dual certified case hardening steels.
