AISI 9840 Alloy Steel | 36CrNiMo4 | DIN 1.6511 | 39NiCrMo3
AISI 9840 is a nickel-chrome-molybdenum steel which contains at least 0.85%Ni,0.7%Cr,0.2%Mo as strengthening alloy elements.It is suitable for different heat treatment and shows excellent hardenability, strength,toughness and good cold workability.After annealing,this material becomes machinable and adjusted for the mechanical cutting.pre-heat and post-weld stress relief are necessary for welding of this alloy,but welding in the hardened and tempered condition is not recommended.

5.Forging for AISI 9840
Forging AISI 9840 steel between 1100℃-11500℃,and reheat the steel once temperature below 950℃.AISI 9840 has good forging characteristics,but this material is easy to crack when cooling improperly,Cooling in sand or in the furnace after forging is recommended.
- Normalizing:850℃-880℃,Cool in air
- Soft Annealing:650℃-700℃,Cool in furnace
- Full Annealing:830℃-850℃,Cool in furnace,235HB max
- Hardening:830℃-865℃,water or oil quench
- Tempering:540°C – 680°C, cool in still air
This material may be readily machined, preferably from a coarse pearlitic structure.
This alloy is suitable for production of highly stressed components of large cross section for aircraft, automotive and general engineering applications, such as forged propeller shafts, connecting rods, gear shafts, crankshafts and landing gear components.
