    ASTM A295

    is specification which covers 52100 high carbon bearing quality steel
    to be used in the manufacture of anti-friction bearings. And 52100 bearing steel is the most common steel grade in ASTM A295 standard for high-carbon anti-friction bearing steel.

    What is 52100 bearing steel

    AISI/ASTM

    52100 bearing steel is a high carbon, chromium containing low alloy
    steel that is through hardening and noted in particular for use as
    bearings.


    52100 bearing steel is one kind of special steel with features of
    high wear resistance and rolling fatigue strength. High-carbon chromium
    bearing steel, engineering steel and some types of stainless steel and
    heat resistant steel are used as materials of bearings and for other
    purposes.

    Advantages of Chrome Bearing Steel 52100:

      Superior hardness, 60-67 on Rockwell hardness scale (Rc) at room temperature

      High carbon chrome alloy steel

      Operates continually at temperatures up to 120°C

      Used to produce precision ball bearings and roller bearings

      Cost-effective

      Long working life

          4. Forging of A295 52100 Bearing Steel

          AISI

          52100 alloy steel is forged at 927 to 1205°C, and should not be forged
          below 925oC. A post-forge equalization treatment is recommended at 745oC

          for 4-6 hours followed by air cooling for SAE/AISI 52100 steel.

          6.Heat Treatment for ASTM 52100 Bearing Steel

          ASTM/AISI

          52100 alloy bearing steel is heated at 816°C followed by quenching in
          oil. Before performing this process, it is subjected to normalizing heat

          treatment at 872°C followed by slowly cooling in order to reduce the
          machining stress.

          Hot Working

          AISI 52100 bearing steels alloy can be hot worked at 205 to 538°C.

          Cold Working

          AISI 52100 bearing steel can be cold worked using conventional techniques in the annealed or normalized conditions.

          Annealing

          For spheroidize anneale, the following isothermal anneal is recommended:

            1500oF (815oC) for 3 hours

            1350oF (735oC) for 4 hours

            1250oF (675oC) for 3 hours

            Slow cool to 1000oF (540oC) then air cool.

            Quenching

            AISI 52100 alloy bearing steel could be hardened by quenching in water from 801-829 degree or quench in oil from 816-842 degree.

            Tempering

            Temper to desired hardness as indicated by tempering curves after water or oil quench.

            5. Applications of 52100 Bearing Steel

            Alloy

            steel 52100 grade bearing steel is mainly used for the manufacture of
            aircraft bearings and other highly stressed parts. This steel grade
            52100 steel is preferably vacuum arc re-melted to give optimum
            performance.

            Typical applications: Bearing Manufacture, CV joints, ball screws, gauges, knife etc.
