17-4 PH Stainless Steel Machining

Stainless Steel Alloy 17-4 PH Machined Parts

Cox Manufacturing can be your source for Stainless steel alloy 17-4 PH CNC machining. We can machine intricate parts on our CNC Swiss machines. 

Stainless steel alloy 17-4 PH is a hard alloy, ideal for parts that require high strength and corrosion resistance. It withstands corrosive attacks better than any stainless steel. When heat-treated, the strength and ductility of 17-4 PH is greatly enhanced.

17-4 PH has a machining cost factor of 5.0 when compared to steel 12L14. It is forgeable and readily weldable and does not require pre- or post-heating processing. 17-4 PH can be heat treated and annealed.

Industries & Applications

  • Shafts
  • Seals
  • Medical equipment
  • Aerospace components
