The news in Weerg never ends. The innovative Italian e-commerce offering CNC and 3D online machining further expands the CNC materials catalogue with the introduction of two different types of steel, fully manufactured in Italy: C45, also known internationally as EN8 or AISI 1045m, and carbon steel 39 (39NiCrMo3), considered one of the best construction steels available on the market. Two new incorporations that respond to the great interest of customers for this alloy. In particular, C45 carbon steel, which can be reinforced with treatments and hardening in certain areas, offers medium strength and is used in the production of keys, shafts, knives, equipment, pins and spindles, but also in parts and components for the automotive, agricultural and construction sectors, as well as for various engineering applications. The carbon steel 39 with nickel and chromium, which Weerg offers in the "hardened and tempered" state of delivery, represents approximately 80% of the world's production of milled steel parts. In fact, thanks to the heat recovery treatment, it becomes much more resistant, versatile and tenacious, finding application in the construction of mechanical parts subjected to torsion, fatigue and dynamic stresses such as shafts, tie rods, gears, molds under tension and integral molds.
