AISI 6150 Spring Steel


AISI 6150 spring steel suppliers, delivering throughout the whole of the UK. West Yorkshire Steel are suppliers of AISI 6150 chromium vanadium type spring steel supplied in the as rolled condition. This grade is suitable for oil hardening and tempering. and when used in the oil hardened and tempered condition AISI 6150 spring steel combines spring characteristics with good wear and abrasion resistance. Hardened 6150 offers excellent toughness and shock resistance which make it a suitable alloy spring steel for parts exposed to stress, vibration and shock.

Preheat carefully, then raise temperature to 1050°C for forging. Do not forge below 840°C. After forging cool slowly in a furnace.


Heat slowly to 820-840°C, soak well and cool slowly in a furnace.


Heat slowly to 650-700°C and thoroughly soak. Continue to heat the 6150 steel to the final hardening temperature of 830-860°C and allow to be heated through. Oil quench.


Temper 6150 spring steel immediately after hardening whilst tools are still hand warm. Re-heat to the tempering temperature then soak for one hour per 25 millimetre of total thickness (2 hours minimum) Cool in air. Tempering of this grade will be between 400-600°C for most applications.


Heat treatment temperatures, including rate of heating, cooling and soaking times etc. will vary due to factors such as the shape and size of each component. Other considerations during heat treatment include the type of furnace, quenching medium and work piece transfer facilities. Please consult a heat treatment provider for full guidance on heat treatment of 6150.
