All Metals & Forge is a leader in the steel alloy supply industry. Their excellent products and services have garnered them ISO9001:2000 and AS9100 certification, as well as a stellar reputation with companies in the aerospace, defense, oil, chemical, and metalworking industries. In addition to offering hundreds of steel alloys, stainless steels, super alloys, and more, All Metals & forge also provides an abundance of metallurgical information on their company website.
There are several ways in which one can access metallurgical information on the All Metals & Forge website. The first is to select an item from the product listings and click on the Alloy Info Report for that metal. When looking up the steel alloy 4130, for instance, one will see a description of its properties and applications. AISI 4130 (as it is also called) contains molybdenum and chromium and is used for aircraft engine mounts and welded tubing applications.
Another way to find data on a particular steel alloy is to go to the Information Resources section of the All Metals & Forge website, click on the AlloyInfo Reports icon, and search for the metal directly. There is also a Ferrous/Non-Ferrous Materials Overview in the Information Resources area, as well as a SteelLog Dictionary. The SteelLog Dictionary alone contains 5,000 metallurgical terms, which in itself is more information than what the average steel supply site offers.
Despite the vast wealth of information contained within the IR section of their website, the proprietors of AM&F understand that there will be times when clients cannot find what they are looking for. That is when the AM&F Solutions Team is happy to step in and provide hard-to-find answers for their clients. To learn more about the superior products and services offered by All Metals & Forge, please call (973) 276-5000, or send an e-mail to: email@example.com.
All Metals and Forge (AM&F) is one of the major suppliers of specialty steel in the U.S. and around the world. Steel itself is an iron alloy that can be produced in a variety of grades, shapes, and sizes. Grade ratings refer to the chemical composition of the alloy, and, among other factors, affect its physical and performance properties.
Steel is commonly produced in a number of standard forms, e.g., bars, sheets, cylinders, etc., of different dimensions. These shapes can then be machined to fit particular requirements. So, for example, a buyer who needs steel for industrial or manufacturing purposes might order stainless steel bars, grade 330, to be delivered in a certain size.
These items may be stock or warehouse items, or they may be custom forged. As a leading supplier, AM&F offers an advantage to buyers in that it keeps an incredible array of specialty steels in stock, including alloys that can be difficult to find elsewhere. AM&F’s custom forging facility also has the capability of producing open die steel forgings such as flat bars, discs, hubs, etc., as well as seamless rolled rings and contour shapes.
To determine if a particular item is in stock, you can search the product database on this site, which lists both the in-stock and custom-made products available. For more information on AM&F’s many services or to request a quote, please call (973) 276-5000, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You are also encouraged to browse this site for extensive information on metallurgy and the steel industry.
When choosing steel bars for industrial or manufacturing purposes, a number of things need to be kept in mind. The first is choosing the right type of alloy for the purpose. Stainless steel, for example, contains at least 10.5 percent chromium, which helps it resist rust and other forms of chemical degradation.
Stainless steels, however, although they operate well in many difficult environments, are subject to wear when insufficiently lubricated. This can ultimately lead to machine failure. All Metals and Forge (AM&F), as a premier U.S. supplier of specialty stainless steels, provides a series of articles on this website to help metals buyers determine the right kind of alloy when choosing steel bars or other products.
In addition choosing the right type of alloy, grade (the specific chemical composition) makes a difference in the performance of steel bars for particular purposes. Although grade is not the only factor that influences a metal’s machinability and other characteristics, it does play an important role. AM&F also provides registered users of this site with extensive information on the properties of various grades.
Additional factors to consider include form (e.g., hollow bars, flat bars, round bars, etc.) and dimensions. AM&F carries a full inventory of steel bars in common and uncommon sizes in stock, including those made from alloys that are difficult to find elsewhere. In addition, AM&F can custom forge steel bars to fit a customer’s exact specifications. For more information on AM&F’s many services or to request a quote on steel bars, please call (973) 276-5000, or send an email to email@example.com.

Tungsten is a steel-gray, hard, heavy metal that has the chemical symbol W, and appears as number 74 in the periodic table of the elements. It has a number of industrial applications, ranging from use in light bulb filaments to acting as a component in the modern super alloys. When combined with steel, tungsten adds hardness and heat-resistance to the resulting alloy.
Tungsten’s other properties include high tensile strength, ductility, and resistance to corrosion by most acids. Tungsten’s properties make it a widely used component in high speed tool steels, and in super alloys such as Hastelloy alloys. High speed tool steels are commonly available as annealed, hot-rolled bars, forgings, plates, sheets, or strips, and as annealed, cold-finished bars or forgings.
Another compound containing tungsten is tungsten carbide, in which both tungsten and carbon are embedded in a matrix of soft metal, such as cobalt. Tungsten carbides are used in the making of tools, and in the petroleum, construction, and mining industries. Tungsten’s high melting point also makes it valuable in aerospace and space exploration applications.
All Metals & Forge (AM&F) carries tungsten steel alloys in stock. Please use the online product database to find the grade and form to fit your needs. If you do not see exactly what you are looking for, please feel free to phone AM&F at (973)276-5000, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
