Ovako 061 is an ingot casted steel of BQ ( Bearing Quality). High hardness (approx. 60HRC) and high strength can be achieved after hardening due to the relatively high carbon content. The steel is suitable for various type of applications where high strength is needed. The steel grade fulfils most of the C60E standard and have a tighter composition range in order to have consistent properties
BQ-Steel® is a bearing quality clean steel optimized for fatigue strength and is also ideal for new design solutions outside the bearing industry.
