What are bearing pullers made of?
Material: GB 40CR Alloy steel(SAE-AISI 5140 steel )
Chemical composition of 40Cr steel
Physical property of 40Cr
Sample blank size (mm):25
The first quenching heating temperature (ºC):850; coolant: Oil
Second quenching heating temperature (ºC):-
Tempering heating temperature (ºC):520;
Tensile strength (σb/MPa): ≥980
The yield point (σs/MPa): ≥785
Elongation (δ5/%): ≥9
Section shrinkage (ψ/%): ≥45
40CR alloy steel is used to produce bearing pullers because it provides them with a very strong structure that is able to withstand wear.
Bearing pullers need to be able to remove bearings, gears or pulleys without becoming easily worn or damaged.
2. Heat Treated
Bearing pullers are heat treated for increased wear and strength.
3. Chrome plated
The bearing pullers are chrome plated to resist corrosion. Corrosion is when iron reacts with oxygen and forms a reddish-brown oxide that we know as rust. When steel corrodes it deteriorates and eventually decays over time.
