What is the difference between A36 and 1010-1018 steel? What are the magnetic differences?
We are having difficulty finding a machinist who is willing to quote a electric motor rotor core with 1010-1018.
ANSI 1018 and ASTM A36 are both low carbon steel and very much the same except the process of making is diff. (go to webmat site for more info.) - ANSI 1018 is more suite for making shaft. However, I recommend using stress-proof steel - 1144 - excellent material
