Carbon Steel Screw Machining

Carbon steels are the second most popular metal we see on our floor. Our sister company, Cincinnati Cold Drawn, allows us to buy direct from the mill and bring in the material to the perfect size. Engineers usually choose carbon steels for their lower cost and versatility to perform within various applications, as well as their ability to accept and withstand secondary operations like heat treating or staking. Carbon steels are most commonly broken down into 3 subgroups: 1000 series, 1100 series, and 1200 series.
