: Whatīs best hardness treatment for 8620 Steel?
: Itīs for a 16mm shaft that will work with a one-way bearing on it. 15N*m torque in the shaft.
: Bearing specification says 58 Rockwell C minimum.
: Thanks All!
Why don't you go for a through-hardening grade of steel. Consult Machinery's Handbook. AISI 1040-1045-1050 grades might be a choice for a shaft. These are ordinarily hardenable to HRC 50 or higher with little effort, but some cost!
A better surface hardening grade than you're using is AISI 1117. It's cheaper and easier to harden. Carbon-nitriding is the normal surface hardening process for this surface-hardenable grade. The 8620 grade is prone to brittleness and I wouldn't use it for a shaft.
