SAE AMS 6477A:2001 pdf download Steel, Bars, Forgings, and Tubing 0.80Cr (0.90 – 1.03C) For Bearing Applications
1.1 Form: This specification covers a low-alloy steel in the form of bars, forgings, mechanical tubing, and forging stock.
1.2 Application: These products have been used typically for bearing components requiring a through-hardening steel usually with hardness of approximately 60 HRC and section thickness under 0.50 inch (12.7 mm), but usage is not limited to such applications.
2. APPLICABLE DOCUMENTS: The issue of the following documents in effect on the date of the purchase order forms a part of this specification to the extent specified herein. The supplier may work to a subsequent revision of a document unless a specific document issue is specified. When the referenced document has been canceled and no superseding document has been specified, the last published issue of that document shall apply.
