    General Information

    Ovako 837 is a through hardening bearing steel that is mainly used for medium sized bearing rings, but can also be used for machine components that require high tensile strength and high hardness.

    • 30 mm maximum wall thickness for through hardening
    • Used for martensitic hardening
    • Can be induction hardened
    • Good machinability in soft annealed condition
    • Machinable in hardened condition using hard-turning techniques (CBN tools)
    • Very good dimension stability

    837R - Bearing quality (BQ) variant

    837S - Variant with a controlled high sulphur content for enhanced low speed machining

    5625 / 837Z - A continous cast variant

     

    BQ-Steel®

    BQ-steel® is a bearing quality clean steel optimized for fatigue strength and is also ideal for new design solutions outside the bearing industry.
