Project 7000 stainless steels win National New Product Recognition

Carpenter Technology Corporation : 15 January, 2000  (New Product)
When we announced our new Project 7000 series of stainless steels, we wanted the metalworking world to know that this represented the most significant improvement in the machinability of stainless steels in the last 30 years.
When we announced our new Project 7000 series of stainless steels, we wanted the metalworking world to know that this represented the most significant improvement in the machinability of stainless steels in the last 30 years.

DESIGN NEWS magazine was among the first to agree and recognize the magnitude development. This prestigious publication, of the reaching over 180,000 design 62,000 plants nationwide, recently named our Project 7000 series runnerup in its engineers in more than 'Most Outstanding New Product' category for 'Plastics, Metals and other Materials' introduced in 1996.

Entries in this and six other categories were screened by the journal's technical editors, evaluated by an independent panel of then judges to determine the best new products all the new products nominated, only 16 were selected as outstanding in this for the year. Of category. The product placing first was a unique automotive device, not truly a material.

In further tribute, the magazine followed up recently by describing the Project 7000 series again on its 'Hot New Products' page.

Superior machinability is offered by a new alloy known as Project 7000 stainless Type 203, a new addition to the Project 7000 series introduced a year ago.

The new alloy can be expected to provide productivity gains of 30% to 50% over generic stainless Type 203, and substantially better machinability than that possible with Project 70 stainless Type 203, which has been well known for its free-machining characteristics.

The new stainless can be considered as an alternative to the conventional resulfurized austenitic stainless steel known as Type 303. Some machinists prefer Type 203 stainless for its drilling characteristics, while others prefer it for jobs that permit the use of maximum form turning speeds. In other cases, it may be selected for its effect on tool life, or its machined surface capabilities.

Project 7000 stainless Type 203 is a premium alloy available in minimum mill quantities in bar sizes ranging from 1/4' to 3/4' diameter.
