    AISI 4340 steel
    is a medium carbon, low alloy steel known for its toughness and
    strength in relatively large sections. AISI 4340 is also one kind of
    nickel chromium molybdenum steels. 4340 alloy steel is generally
    supplied hardened and tempered in the tensile range of 930 – 1080 Mpa.
    Pre hardened and tempered 4340 steels can be further surface hardened by
    flame or induction hardening and by nitriding. The 4340 steel has good
    shock and impact resistance as well as wear and abrasion resistance in
    the hardened condition. AISI 4340 steel properties offer good ductility
    in the annealed condition, allowing it to be bent or formed. Fusion and
    resistance welding is also possible with our 4340 alloy steel. ASTM 4340
    material is often utilized where other alloy steels do not have the
    hardenability to give the strength required. For highly stressed parts
    it is excellent choice. AISI 4340 alloy steel can also be machined by
    all customary methods.

    Due to availability the ASTM 4340 grade steel is often substituted
    with European based standards 817M40/EN24 and 1.6511/36CrNiMo4 or Japan
    based SNCM439 steel. You have the detailed data of 4340 steel below.

    4. Forging of 4340 Alloy Steel

    Preheat
    the steel 4340 first, heat up to 1150°C – 1200°C maximum for forging,
    hold until temperature is uniform throughout the section.

    Do not forge
    below 850 °C. 4340 has good forging characteristics but care must be
    taken when cooling as the steel shows susceptibility to cracking.
    Following forging operation the work piece should be cooled as slowly as
    possible. And cooling in in sand or dry lime is recommended etc.

    5. AISI 4340 Steel Grade Heat Treatment

    • Stress Relieving

    For
    pre-hardened steel stress relieving is achieved by heating steel 4340
    to between 500 to 550°C. Heat to 600 °C – 650 °C, hold until temperature
    is uniform throughout the section, soak for 1 hour per 25 mm section,
    and cool in still air.

    • Annealing

    A
    full anneal may be done at 844°C (1550 F) followed by controlled
    (furnace) cooling at a rate not faster than 10°C (50 F) per hour down to
    315°C (600 F). From 315°C 600 F it may be air cooled.

    • Tempering

    AISI
    4340 alloy steel should be in the heat treated or normalized and heat
    treated condition before tempering. The tempering temperature for
    depends upon the strength level desired. For strength levels in the 260 –
    280 ksi range temper at 232°C (450 F). For strength in the 125 – 200
    ksi range temper at 510°C (950 F). And don’t temper the 4340 steels if
    it is in the 220 – 260 ksi strength range as tempering can result in
    degradation of impact resistance for this level of strength.

    Tempering should be avoided if possible within the range 250 °C – 450 °C due to temper brittleness.

    • Flame or Induction Hardening

    As mentioned above, pre-hardened and tempered 4340 steel bars or plates can be further surface hardened by either the flame or induction hardening
    methods resulting in a case hardness in excess of Rc 50. AISI 4340
    steel parts should be heated as quickly as possible to the austenitic
    temperature range (830 °C – 860 °C) and required case depth followed by
    an immediate oil or water quenching, depending upon hardness required,
    workpiece size/shape and quenching arrangements.

    Following
    quenching to hand warm, tempering at 150°C – 200°C will reduce stresses
    in the case with minimal effect on its hardness.

    All de-carburised surface material must first be removed to ensure best results.

    • Nitriding

    Hardened
    and tempered 4340 alloy steel can also be nitrided, giving a surface
    hardness of up to Rc 60. Heat to 500°C – 530°C and hold for sufficient
    time (from 10 to 60 hours) to develop the depth of case. Nitriding
    should be followed by slow cooling (no quench) reducing the problem of
    distortion. The nitrided grade 4340 materials can therefore be machined
    to near final size, leaving a small grinding allowance only. The tensile
    strength of the 4340 steel material core is usually not affected since
    the nitriding temperature range is generally below the original
    tempering temperature employed.

    Surface hardness achievable is 600 to 650HV.

    6. Machinability

    Machining
    is best done with the alloy steel 4340 in the annealed or normalized
    and tempered condition. It can be readily machined by all conventional
    methods such as sawing, turning, drilling etc. However in the high
    strength conditions of 200 ksi or greater the machinability is only from
    25% to 10% that of the alloy in the annealed condition.

    7. Welding

    Welding
    of steel 4340 in the hardened and tempered condition (as normally
    supplied), is not recommended and should be avoided if at all possible,
    because of the danger of quench cracking, as the mechanical properties
    will be altered within the weld heat affected zone.

    If welding
    must be carried out, pre-heat to 200 to 300°C and maintain this while
    welding. Immediately after welding stress relieve at 550 to 650°C, prior
    to hardening and tempering.

    If welding in the hardened and
    tempered condition is really necessary, then the work piece, immediately
    on cooling to hand warm, should be if possible stress relieved at 15 °C
    below the original tempering temperature.

    8. Application of 4340 Steel

    AISI
    4340 steel is used in most industry sectors for applications requiring
    higher tensile/yield strength than 4140 steel can provide.

    Some typical applications such as:

    • Aircraft Landing Gear

    • Automotive,

    • Oil and Gas Drilling,

    • Forging,

    • Warm and Cold Forming,

    • Machine Building,

    • Transfer Systems, like power transmission gears and shafts.

    • General
      engineering industries and structural use applications, such as: heavy
      duty shafts, gears, axles, spindles, couplings, pins, chucks, molds etc.

  • The majority of commercial codes used for computer modeling of induction heating processes are all-purpose programs originally developed for modeling processes occurring in electrical machines, motors, circuit breakers, transformers, and magnetic recording systems, and later adapted to induction heating needs. Despite the capabilities of modern commercial software, many generalized programs have difficulty taking into consideration certain features of induction heating prior to warm and hot forming (including forging, rolling, and upsetting). This includes:

    - The presence of a thermal refractory and the necessity of considering radiation factors
    - The heated workpiece can simultaneously move, rotate, and oscillate with respect to induction coil
    - The presence of nonuniform initial temperature distributions, such as reheating after continuous casting and billet holding stage
    - The presence of end plates, guides, fixtures, liners, etc.

    It is important to be aware that certain critical features of induction heating the workpiece prior to forging could be limiting factors for all-purpose software, dramatically affecting accuracy. This was the reason why some induction heating manufacturers developed several proprietary application-oriented programs, which allow taking into consideration process specifics and important subtleties.
    Results of computer modeling of the dynamics of end heating a 2-in. (50-mm) diameter low-carbon steel bar using a solenoid multiturn coil are shown in the figure. The required heated length is 5in. (127 mm). Because the bar is symmetrical, only the top half was modeled using Inductoheat’s proprietary FEA software. Temperature variations at four selected areas of the bar are shown. A 0.5-in. thick thermal refractory is placed between the heated bar and a multiturn inductor (inductor is not shown). Prior to heating, the thermal refractory has certain nonuniform initial temperature distribution that remains from the previous heating cycle.
    During the heating cycle, the temperature of both bar and refractory changes. Bar temperature increases due to Joule heat generated by induced eddy currents. The thermal condition of the refractory is a complex function of the heat radiated from the bar surface (due to thermal radiation and convection) and its cooling due to surroundings and water-cooled induction coil.
    Computer modeling using appropriate software makes it possible to address all of the important process features, reducing the learning curve in the development of the most appropriate process recipe and ensuring high quality of the heated workpiece. Important process subtleties revealed by computer modeling are discussed in Ref.1 and 2.
