C1215 is a resulphurized and rephosphorized free machining steel, commonly referred to as screw machine stock. C1215 is an improved free machining steel that has replaced the Bessemer B1113 grade years ago. C1215 is especially suited for automatic screw machine operations where the major requirement is exceptional free-machining quality with a smooth, bright finish.

 

General Information about C1215:


APPLICATIONS:

C1215 was developed for manufacturing numerous parts requiring considerable machining, close finish tolerances, and a bright smooth finish, ideal for screw machine stock. It can also be used for bushings, inserts, hydraulic hose fittings, couplings, studs, pins, etc. Beyond ordinary machining, it will respond well to roll threading, nibbing, and some minor bending without cracking. It is not recommended for forming, ordinary bending, or upsetting, nor for parts subject to severe fatigue stress.

MACHINING AND WELDING:

C1215's machinability is rated at 136% of B1112. Average cutting speed is225 ft/min. Because of C1215's very high sulphur content, weldability is considered poor.

HEAT TREATING - Forging, Normalizing, and Annealing:

Although this analysis will respond to conventional treatments, C1215 is not considered to be a case hardening steel. Better results are obtained from C1018.
