One of the most versatile steels, 4140 is characterized by its toughness, abrasion resistance, and impact resistance, making it a great all-purpose steel for industrial applications.
A versatile alloy with applications that include aerospace, tool and die manufacturing, the oil and gas industries, as well as automotive, agricultural and defense sectors, 4140 steel displays an excellent general tooling and end-use material due to its high strength-to-weight ratio, torsional strength and general toughness.
A low alloy steel that contains chromium, molybdemum, and manganese, 4140 is typically used to create gears, spindles, fixtures, jigs and many other parts, including:
Using the BMD process, users can quickly fabricate a wide variety of parts for testing against real-world conditions. Printing in 4140 using the Studio System can also allow shops to cost-effectively create custom tools for small and specialty jobs, while still keeping per-part costs low.
