Low Carbon Steel (Case Hardened)

Description

These balls have an intrinsically low carbon content so they're relatively soft and flexible. By case hardening, we're able to increase the rigidity of the external surface to produce a product that's both tough and tensile.

Benefits

Case hardened Low Carbon Steel balls are very cost-effective and the combination of a hard, carburised case and soft core gives them superb resistance to shock loads; the flexible core delivers outstanding load bearing while the hard case shrugs off surface wear.

Use

You'll find them used in castors and conveyors, and anywhere that requires non-precision bearings, from baggage handling and sliding walls to scales and drawer runners.
