Steel Bars, Forgings, and Tubing, 1.0Cr - 3.25Ni - 0.40Mo (0.17 - 0.22C), Electroslag Remelted or Consumable Electrode Vacuum Remelted, Premium Aircraft-Quality
This specification covers a premium aircraft-quality, low-alloy steel in the form of bars, forgings, mechanical tubing, and forging stock. These products have been used typically for carburized parts requiring high minimum core hardness with a narrow range, reduced distortion and subject to stringent magnetic particle inspection standards, but usage is not limited to such applications.
AMS6493A results from a Five Year Review and update of this specification.
